Everything you see in these pictures came to a grand total of..... wait for it...

$150 cdn!!!! So that included the tank, light, netlea lambo aquasoil and about 10lb of dragon stone. Damn, I love aquainspiration....

I felt like a kid on christmas morning today just waiting for everyone to leave the house so i could get the hardscape down.

As it stands now, I just need to decide on a decent canister filter that will fit in my Ikea Expedit shelf (or just buy a better stand) and then order a paintball regulator.

Normal price would have been a bit more, but they didn't have a new light on box, so I bought a display model. The difference isn't that much.

They have quite a few shallow tanks as well. There a a 60cm version for 110 and a 90cm for 220

Awesome tank, I recently bought a (W50D35H35CM) tank from AI as well. Currently waiting for them to restock on Yamaya stones so I can begin my iwagumi hardscape

Thanks! I don't know about the stone, but i stocked up on driftwood because he had mentioned that they wouldn't be getting another shipment until the end of the year!

If you get impatient, you could always try Angelfins!
