Miracle tank find

So I just got the best deal EVER for my shop today, I bought 2 240g tanks, complete with stands, sumps, pumps, skimmers, lights, refugiums, and chillers. One of them even has a teak stand.

All hardware is top of the line.

Guess how much I paid?

$700
And they are being delivered to my shop, unloaded, and set up for me!

Great find!!! You should raise Arowanas the are worth huge when they get big. I saw one in LFS that had a price tag of $50K

So a guy walks into a Pet Store

Guy: "I have Algae on my drift wood!"

Pet Clerk: "Take two Plecos and call me next week."

And how long do you think it will take to sell that fish lol?
I'm selling one of the tanks and stands for $700 to one of my regulars, so I pretty much got a 240g, 2 chillers, 2 protein skimmers, and everything else for free!
