Default Der Iron Chef's 10G Nano

I don't have any equipment (or any single item, for that matter), not have I even paid the entry fee! But, I suppose I should start a thread of my own....so here goes.

More to come!

Picked up the 10G AGA at Pisces today....only $16.99. Not bad! Also picked up a JBJ K-2 Viper 150W HQI fixture for $170. Not bad?

Oh...also picked up a sweet little zoa colony from Ocean City Pics to come!

Everything looks good Drew, minus the oddly lacking BK MINI 180. Come now man, no more slacking.

Hey Drew,

Where did you get the Viper 150w HQI?? I'm looking to get one for my 20g. $170 doesn't sound so bad at all...

LOL. Hmmm, but I wonder....is that what you might call "over-skimming"?

Pisces. I didn't see anymore on the shelf, but I also wasn't looking for anymore. They used to sell them with the JBJ nano cube kits, but I guess they decided to break them apart and sell it all separately. I thought it was a good deal, as I've seen them as high as $299 locally.

Well, yes....it is a contest tank....but it's also a permanent downgrade from my larger tank, so I didn't want to skimp on lighting (waste money when I'll only be buying something better down the road anyway). So yeah. Livestock will be fairly cheap for me. At least for now
