Dan, how much? My mom has been looking for a bow front. I told her to get a 72 but I think she actually wants something smallish. And sorry I never returned that PM. A lot of the HC melted. I'm trying to nurse it back. I'll let you know if it comes back.

No problem.

Not sure what to ask for it....does 50 sound fair (tank, hood, plants)? Someone let me know if this seems out of line - I don't sell stuff much so i'm not really sure....

That is a fair price for a complete setup.

Not necessarily breed. I would say I want to have more hands on experience with them. I currently have 3 that I have been raising the past 2 years. Thinking back, I should have gotten more at the time when I got there three but that is hind sight.

$399 at the LFS is just someone being greedy. That's is about what the market value is.
