    Monthly Fees associated with Tanks!!

    I was wondering if you all noticed a big leap in your monthly bills due to setting up your tanks.. with all those VHO and big pumps!!!

    just wondering how much my bills will go up when i set my 90gal up lol.. my wife will probably kill me!!!

    I'd be most worried about the heating since small heaters tend to be terribly inefficent in power.

    Anyway overall on my 75g I think the monthly hydro bills went up $10 / month.

    Each 400W HID light costs me about the same, but they're not on 7/24

    There is nothing so permanent as a temporary measure.
