    What sort of expense is involved in setting up a small aquarium, say a tank 4 feet long
    with a few accessories and some fish?

    Firts off,..Welcome to APU Info needed on setting up new tank,... 315146 I made your post a thread on it's
    own due to the nature of the question and so members can find
    it easier.

    My 55 gal (4ft x 1ft) w/ 2 Emp400 filters, gravel (50pds) some driftwood
    decor, stand, hood, lids lights was just under $500 new. Fish can be costly
    or cheap depending on what you want,..Another route would be grabbing one
    off Ebay or Craigslist complete for alot cheaper,..clean it well and it's
    good as new. i picked up 2 90gals on Ebay,..one for $250 the other $300
    complete w/ stand/hood,..there are some great deals to be had w/ our
    current economic situation,..

    Great deals are to be found on ebay craiglist.

    Greatlakes aquarium is the cheapest place i found ever for brand new tanks and they will ship anywhere luckily there local to me. http://www.greatlakesaquariums.com/rpl.php

    4ft tanks there are many sizes 50 gallons is common size depending on what you want to keep. I pickedup my whole 110w tank with iron stand for 300 brandnew without lids or lights. already had them.

    If you go 50 gallon i would say minimum 150wt heater, 1 ac110 would be great for a 50gallon lids and lights should be rather cheap also. what kind of fish you want to keep really would make what kind of tank dimmensions. So before you decided i would think about what type of fish you want to keep and then post back again.

    The costs can vary depending on alot of things. Just as Cam mentioned. Do you currently have any set ups? Is there any certain type of fish you'd like? If you are just starting out remember to cycle your tank. As for cleaning a tank the best thing is baking soda, and for hard water stains vinegar. The baking soda my mother told me a friend of hers used to raise fry, and that's all he would use. flower flower
