    Where Can I Get Cheap Tanks And Stuff?

    I was on adana-usa.com and was looking at some rimless tanks to start a new micro aquascape but they are so expensive. Not only that but the shipping is outrageous. It would cost me nearly $80 for a 4 gallon tank. Anywhere else I can buy cheap tanks and materials for aquascaping? Thanks

I have a freshwater planted tank right now and want to move on to...
