    Yeah, I'm not sure if the budget is reasonable yet, so it's not set in stone.

    Budget is just for equipment and rocks/sand.

    My first tank is really stable now, fully planted with two happy keyhole cichlids, some barbs, mollies and algae crew. I'm thinking about adding a second tank in the house. This one would be in the...
