Just found a great new family run aqua./reptile store this weekend. Super knowledgable and friendly staff. I did feel like I was being "sold" a bit. Honestly I'm just starting out and don't think I need to spend $300 on lighting right this second. They did manage to snipe $250 from me tho haha. In the process of starting up my new 55g. I can't believe I fooled myself into thinking this was going to be inexpensive, silly me. Just finished up adding my little piece of drift wood to my 5g betta tank and rearranging a bit. Can't believe my next project is going to be 11x as big! Everything looks great in my head so far haha. I hope I can pull something awesome out. If anyone has any random aquascaping tips I would more than appreciate them. I'm fully going trial and error here.....plus whatever the Internet tells me.... But everything I see is way too over my head! Anyways long post I'm just super excited to get my hands wet!
