Are the lights in these starter kits usually strong enough for plants?

The 5 gallon kit does not have a heater and you will need it for tropical fish once it temperature goes down or if you keep house down below 75 farenheit.

You will need to buy water dechlorinator, Seachem Prime is the best one.

It takes a good month to cycle a fish tank. It's a process you have to do new fish tanks, just like warming up an engine before running with it.

If a tank is not cycled, the chances of new fish dying are high.

FYI: petco should be having their dollar per gallon sale starting soon (I hear July 12). This is still a good deal on starter kits. Love aquarium deals. If anyone has any questions about starting an aquarium send me a message. 🐟🐌🦐
Dude, petco has rip off on hoods. Did you ver try buying 55gal hood from there it's crazy price.

55g kit is great price in my opinion for $100, if you try to get $55 tank from Petco + 200W heater, 75 power filter, and LED, you'll pay way more than $100.
I wish I had space for 55gal tank. Frown

55 Gallon Glass tank with hood
Bright White LED
Thermometer
6 in Nylon Net
Water test Vial
200 Watt Heater
Top Fin Silentstream 75 Power Filter with cartridge instruction Manual

Craigslist is your friend if anyone is seriously looking for a good deal on fish tank setups.

Use Arrowhead mountain spring water for your freshwater tank.

Don't buy pretreated water for $14 a gallon
Or just buy water conditioner and treat your tap water.

If you're a newbie, don't get anything smaller than 20 gallon or it will be more difficult to keep most fish alive.
Unless you want it for just one or two fish. I had a 3 gal 'kit' for a Beta at my work and it was easy to maintain because one fish doesn't usually affect levels too much in one direction or another. It was happy and healthy swimming around unlike the ones you see in tiny stagnant bowls.

How much would the additional things like filter, heater, cover etc cost if someone gets just aquarium from petco in dollar per gallon deal?

It depends on the size of the tank you get and what you plan to put In it. You could get a cheap sponge filter and an air pump for around $15 and then a decent light might cost $20-30. Or for a little more you could get a hang on back filter for $25-$30. A heater shouldn't be more than $20ish and it will all be better quality than the kit and will last much longer. A stronger light will help various plants to grow better as well as give you an option for much more variety of live plants. The lights on these kits can only grow very low light plants. A glass lid would be around $15 also

5 gallons is really only good for 1 betta fish or a small shrimp colony. If you want any schooling fish I would recommend minimum 10 gallons. 20 would be better if you had space. The larger the tank the more options of fish you have.

They would work on low light plants like java moss and Anubias but it would be hard to grow anything else
