Well, then, I will bring him the filter tomorrow and have him ship it with the wood.

Yes, you HAVE to plant the day it is set up.
Plants EAT ammonia and help with the cycle.

Have you ever read Rex's forum.
He explains alot about light, co2 and the plant tank cycle
www.rexgrigg.com

Then you can have the filter to do the set up and only need me to send plants and that cost only about $2 to ship.

What are your C02 plans, I forgot. Are you going pressurized?
If so, this is probably the best deal you can get and has all you need BUT the cylinder.
Those are not cheap, but for a 20 gallon, you can get away with a 2.5lb tank and you should be able to get one for about $40 plus the fill of about $10 (that is if you are lucky, I have a weld shop around that sells me the 2.5 for $53 filled after tax). Here is the combo that will get you ALL THE WAY going less the tank

Oh and they have the lights also
http://www.aquabuys.com/miva/merchan...oduct_Count=28
But they are a bit more
BUT you could try to get this guy to pricematch. I have dealt with him before and he is a good guy.

and you could get this stand from him
http://www.aquabuys.com/miva/merchan...roduct_Count=0

If he matches the lights you are at $250 with the stand, all you need it a tank and the co2 tank.
I give you a filter and you get wood from F&Tjunkie and you just need SMS or schultz aquatic soil
and ready to go.

Of course if you CAN'T get that Co2 you can get one or two of these to at least have SOME
Heck, you are not going to beleive this, but I have two of these laying around and of course, you can HAVE them if that is what you want.

But I would suggest you go for pressurized if you can at all work it out.

It is too bad you are not local, I would sell you this set up

Or just one of the tanks with 2 lights, but that would be a pain to ship.

I will buy the lights from him after I get him to lower the price (nicely).I will get the Co2 regulator thingy, filter, and plants from you (man I'm lucky). and I will dose Co2 from paintball cartridges, and I will dose with fourish excel from BigAlsonline and get the stand from either Auabuys or Drsfosterandsmith.com, but I have not decided yet. And I will buy driftwood from fishandturtlejunkie.. Thank's so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, wait, I miss read, I will buy a cheap regulator and use a DIY diffuser and Co2 paintball cartridges. I will buy the tank tomorrow from either Petco or Petsmart, I will see which is better. I am lucky and both those stores are located right next to each other

You might need to get an adapter to use that regulator on a paintball can.

And what do you mean you will get the Co2 thingy. The one from Aquabuys cause you said from me.
I can give you the Hagen Ladder style DIY, but that is the mix of sugar yeast and water, not the regulator like I showed you from Aquabuys.

Just want to be clear, I think you mean to get the one from aquabuys but the wording was a little weird.

Of course you can have the DIY but I would really like to see you get full Co2 set up.

For a little more, Red Sea makes one that is made for paintball cans.

I will need to check into the kind of adapters that will allow you to use the Milwaukee (one from aquabuys) on a paintball can.

Foster and Smith

It is actually a BIT more, but if you HAVE a paintball can already, it saves you the $53 you need for a Co2 tank.

There are some other options that I know of, but I will have to look for them.
I know there is one that you can get at Lowe's and it comes with a disposable canister and with one adapter, some tube and a diffuser, you get the WHOLE thing for about $100.
You probably have to change the can every month to 6 weeks, and buy a new one for about $15 I am guessing.

Now bed, tomorrow more talk.

I think I will stick to DIY fermentation Co2 from you and dose with a DIY diffuser made of a plastic oxygen diffuser from a kit I used to own, but I still have the little thingy (it's plastic)
