Hmmmmm.

SQUIDCAM has NZ$4,785 equipment alone (excluding the camera). Current NZ/US$ conversion rates, that's US$3346.

600 litre acrylic cylinder - $1599
EHEIM 2217, 1000 litre/hr - $345
ELITE 802 airpump - $33
Aqua Medic Midiflotor protein skimmer - $323
Submersible pond pump (forget details) - $150 (sump to chiller)
Misc EHEIM tubes (pump to tank, tank to sump) - $60
Chiller (can't find brand details anywhere) - $2250
Misc stones and airlines - $5
Sump (old barrel) - $20

All the pumps, skimmers etc. are in the sump. EHEIM from sump to tank; overflow from tank to sump. Pump in sump to chiller, return to sump.

I've got 3 of these setups (and a ton of other glass tanks - seldom use them), but only one chiller; I desperately need additional chillers, but at that price .... :roll: . The chiller is magnificent, but I do remember buying it, opening the box and there wasn't any information - no manual, no nothing - and there's nothing on the unit itself. Bizarre. Took me quite a while to figure it out (and that I had to buy a pump to operate it - that wasn't apparent earlier), but I wouldn't be without one now; I dread it dying as it's been operating constantly for 2 years without a hiccup!!

You said it, I'm 14 and and I don't have that much cash, I have a Palpal program that will go to buying equipment for a buy and release program, I buy fresh sea creatures that are in good shape and release them, the injured ones will be hospitalied in my fish bowl,um tank... I have raised 50$ so far...I need at least 10000 HK cash to get a small 30gal. tank 8 HKD = 1 USD. So, I have 400 now... and 9600 or more to go (if the USD, HKD doesn't change)

Help here...I could donate my 50 USD to you...but I'll have to ask the person who donated to me for permission since this is for another worthy cause... ( PLease see Pay me money noe poeple thread in the Octo's den fourm for some info)
