Yeah I saw that tank a few days ago. That would be amazing but Im not allowed to go that big. I think 180 is the biggest I have approval for. I can get a new 75G from Reef for a good deal. Im planning on building a stand for anything I get anyway.

guess i'm gonna need to set up the 20L as a holding tank for my plants again. LOL on the upside, my kid is getting a 30B this weekend from a friend of his, so i get a 10G back. that is going to be my cherry/malawa breeding tank.

Bill, I'd also offer to help move the 75 for you. I know it goes in my MINI and I wanted to meet up with Joon anyway. Still trying to get some CPOs and trade some plants. Plus I want to see his tank warehouse.... lol. I still owe you a favor for the 55g tank. Which Im still not using. lol. But considering throwing it out on my back porch as a livebearer pond kinda thingy...

I think they are just regular 75G for $85. I hate built in overflows. I want nothing to do with that kind of system. HOB or cheap Odyssea canisters FTW.

Haven't used those filters personally but I plan to soon. Probably the FX5 copy. Need serious flow for something. I definitely have some Needle Leaf rhizome to spare.

Hey man, sorry for the no response. Would it set you back much to keep em or sell them to someone else? Truth is, I'm broke as a joke and Van said he would hook me up with some jungle val is the future since they grow like weeds in his tank and he throws them away on a regular basis.

Not a problem. I like them and worst case a few of my friends will most likely buy them if I really wanna get rid of them. Let me know if you ever need anything else.

Thanks GitMoe, I really appreciate it. I'm planning on starting my first emersed tank with some glosso and a bunch of anubias...hopefully I can sell some of it to get some money for the hobby again.

Emersed is fun to play with. I've had pretty good succes since I started my setup a few weeks ago. This hobby can be expensive for sure. Being a wholesaler has saved me a ton of money and allowed me to make enough to mostly support my hobby with minimal costs in the end.
