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!

Yep! The chiller on one of these tanks alone costs more than what I paid for both!

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!
