anyone have a 55gallon or similarly large tank+ stand for sale? my friend offered me a 55gal+ stand for $75. Can anyone beat this deal? or have glass tops/lights to go with yours? His tank has plastic lids and im looking for glass lids at least. If no one has any better or similar deals let me know. Id also love a rack style stand that could hold a 55 on top and a couple of 10 gallons width wise and a 20H. anyone do that for me? haha anyways let me know what you guys have.

A bit early but so far after this weekend.

You don't need the worm castings. I have 3 more tanks with berried and now babies CRS. Two different substrate used, two with FSS. Will have to wait a few months to see if they populate like the worm castings tank but they are thriving so far.

I think it's all about the stability of the right water.

For $75 for stand and tank, it's worth it. As far as a stand for the 55 ans the other tanks, better off building it. A stock 55 stand wouldn't work since a 55g is only 12-13" deep.

that is 100% correct. They will breed in most water conditions, as long as it is stable. No big temp changes, no big ph swings. Stability is the key. It's why i listened to van and took the co2 out of my crs tank. It is a now a blue collared work tank. No fancy stuff. Not pretty to look at, but my crs are breeding now. I saw a baby last night

That's certainly good news. Pretty soon, we won't be able to give CRS away in this area.

Sunday is usually not a good day for me to meet but I would love to come to one of these meet.

I'd like to go to the meet too. My June weekend schedule is bursting at the seams though, so I guess I'll wait and see what day you guys choose.
