    Picked up some black silica substrate and filter media so I could get this bad boy up and running. For the tank, stand, Rena hob filter, a python for WC, heater and a ton of other crap for $50 of a guy on kijiji. Filled it up tonight, added a sponge from my established 10g to kick start the cycling process and dosed 4ppm ammonia. Now we wait.

    I guess I'm weird... I actually don't mind the smell, but then I don't have asthma either. I also love the smell of vinegar...

    Oh about the pic... the light is just dreadful and will be upgraded.

    A good start, ammonia does not bother me either but like you I don't have asthma.

    I know ammonia is toxic to the skin / and what not but for people like me the fumes can wreak havoc as the fumes are toxic as well especially on the 10% concentrate struff. Other things like bleach or vinegar don't both me but that ammonia is nasty stuff.

    I just browsed local classifieds. I know craigslist is more popular in some areas but around here kijiji is the most popular classified site. This poor guy was ripped off by pet stores and bought all kinds of useless stuff... Didn't do his research and failed at fish. He was frustrated and sold it all cheap. It's a real shame for him but a great score for me.

    Great price Sarah...I'm always cruising kijiji for that great deal, but no luck yet. The tank and stand look like a hit!! Ammonia doesn't bother me much either...bleach however sends me running...

    Thanks, my only wish is that it was a 20L but oh well, I'll work with what I've got. A tip for kijiji shopping, remember you can always negotiate prices, especially with aquarium stuff as so many people just want to get rid of it as it takes up a fair bit of space. Many of them tried and failed at fish and are frustrated with it all.
    With this set up though 50 was a steal and I was happy to pay asking. Heck I even have a UV steriliser that came with it that I'll be selling!
