In the process of starting my 5th tank. Already have a 55 gal community tank, 40 gal Cichlid, 10 gal guppy tank, and a 7 gal shrimp tank. This time I decided to not get a kit and buy what I want all separately. Right now in the process of getting the substrate carpeted with plants. Before I get any stock, I figure I'll have over $100 invested. Who ever said this was a cheap hobby?
