I got my 40g Oceanic hex on CL, but I paid alot for it. It was the only tank that had the footprint I needed, though, and Oceanic had stopped making them. At least I was able to find it though.

I got both my dogs on CL too

Fluval Osaka 155 tank with stand for $75. Pretty much the only good deal I've seen on my local Craigslist though.

From a co-workers friend: 20L, Fluval filter, canopy/hood w/ light, metal stand - $50.

I had been thinking about getting a 20l for a while but just couldn't decide on light/filter etc.

Then this deal came along I jumped at it!

Just scored 5 huge Amano shrimp from Hidden Reef in PA for $1.99, kid thought they were ghost shrimp. He even said "man, I never seen a ghost shrimp so big!"

I have gotten a 26 gallon bowfront w/ wrought iron stand for free.

Biggest Score was a 55 gallon tank, w/Eheim 2226 Pro II Filter w/6 boxes of media, 5lb CO2 tank, Milwaukee Regulator, Red Sea 500 Reactor, Nova Extreme 216W T5HO, plants, fish & wrought iron stand, for $200. Lady was so happy to have a competent person adopt her fishie family that she ended up giving me an extra Nova Extreme 216W light, another Milwaukee regulator, ladder diffuser, Fluval 304 filter, tap water filter, alkaline buffers and chemicals, pretty much everything she had. She was getting ready to sell her house and when we left, my Jeep was jam packed.

Funny because I had been asking and learning about going high-tech on this forum and earlier in the evening started pricing all the equipment out to get a game plan together of slowly piecing things together as I could afford it. Then went and searched co2 on craigslist and her month+ old ad came up. Thought this HAD to be gone...and for the hell of it called...

Talk about feeling like xmas that day! For weeks I was looking for suitable/cheap lighting to start.

4 months later....plants are all thriving as well as every single one of her fish! Kismet for sure!
