Another LFS bites the dust, but I scored!!!


Unfortunately another LFS is going out of business. Something Fishy in Apple Valley is closing its doors and liquidating everything. First day was today. Liquidation continues tomorrow and next weekend. I showed up at opening this morning and scored a brand new 120 gallon (120XH 60x18x26) and stand for less than 'cost' of the tank alone.

They did have another 120XH pre-drilled with corner overflow, and also a 120FB tank and stand combo, but things were selling fast and I believe those other tanks are now sold. Tons of equipment, chemicals, dry goods, store used acrylic tanks, etc. If you are looking for anything at all you may want to check them out.

I regret not buying all three 120's at the price they were selling them, but the one I scored is going to make one heck of a Discus show tank.

Too bad I was focused on the tank & stand. They sold a brand new Marineland C530 canister for $65 and a slightly used one for $40. Guess I missed those somehow. Oh well, heading back there tomorrow for a more thorough look.

They closed because the owner passed away. I believe he had a heart attack.
