Shopping list for a standard tank:
- 4ft x 2ft x 2ft viv
- Light bulb (can be a normal household, spotlight or halogen) + fittings
- Thermostat (for a light-emitting bulb a dimming stat is best suited)
- Digital thermometers (I'm afraid dial/analogue ones are beyond useless)
- UVB, reflector and starter (the best UVB around is Arcadia T5's, you would need a 12%. Also if you do split them up there are dual starters so you can run 2 tanks off the same one, they're also much more cost effective)
- Substrate wise is down to you, some prefer play sand, lino, slate, tiles. Have a nosey around and see what would be best for you
- Supplements (you'll need a multivit (Repashy calcium plus is good) and calcium powder)
- Your decor (bowls, branches etc)

And that's all I can think of atm.

EDIT:



You're being rude.
Thank you, I do appreciate your help.
