I was wondering if I should get a kit for a 20 gallon aquarium or buy it all separately. I'm leaning towards buying it separately as it would help getting quality equipment but if you know any good kits for a good price I'd like to know.

all depends... i have 4 top fin 10 gallon starter tanks divided for my bettas. I sell the filter and keep the LED light plus heater. The light is not for growing plants but works for bettas. However i bought a 20gallon all separately. The light is much better and you could grow plants. But its way more pricey. What is the main need for this tank? any live plants?

I personally love kits because some come with heaters that are like, $20 heaters and they are just better for the buck!

Craigslist will get you everything for pretty cheap. I wouldn’t get a kit.

Not all kits are made equal. I'd do a little research on the specific kit you're looking at and see how other's have done with it. If people end up replacing half the equipment, you're probably better off buying everything separately.

If you have a good local fish some will help you build a qood quality setup at a discount beings your buying everything at once. My 75 gallon was a complete setup on their showroom floor. It was probably the best of everything but it hurt my pocket. Lol

I do plan to plant it. Also my main goal is to get everything new/ great condition for fresh water fish.
