WTB 20 gal


Does anyone have a used 20 gal tank for sale (20 or 29 gal both work)? I am looking to use it as an emersed set up, so it doesn't have to be pretty. I am just not willing to pay the $50 that people on craigslist think their tanks are worth. I'd prefer a 20 long, but any 20 gal will work.

That could work. Don't care so much about the dirt, but it needs to hold water!

Paint and holes I could work with. Does it hold water? And how high are the holes?

When i get back to the house i'll take a pic. and measurements. It holds water, it was once a reef tanks, so the holes are for a sump. One hole is 1" with a bulkhead, and the other is either 1 3/4" or 2" with bulkhead, but i think i have the wrong size bulkhead on that one. Which can be easily removed with a twist of the tank.

Just a FYI for plants that I could trade:

H. pinnatifida
Glosso - just trimmed a softball sized clump
blyxa (within time, just got trimmed as well)
Moss - no ID, peacock, christmas, dunno
A. barteri
C. spiralis
C. dewittii (Sold as such, doubt it though)
Some select others as time comes

Either tank would work, as long as it holds water!

Yeah, i was hoping to get some of my money back on it haha. If you do get a 29g, and want a 29g stand that holds 2x 29g's i still have that. I was going to sand it down, and repaint it once the weather dry's up a bit. I'm hoping to get $30 for it to cover the cost i paid for it.
If you don't get drews, Tim had mentioned to me he had a 20L to get rid of if he hasn't spoken to you about yet.

So then that is a dilemma. I cannot take the tank from you if you're going to do crabs!!! GO CRABS!!! I was speaking to a craigslist man and he wants to sell me his 20long for $10. I might take him up on the offer due to the larger footprint. Thank you everyone though. And drew you want crabs!
