Well! I managed a good deal while I was out wandering today. Manager at a store was yelling at an employee for taking back a tank with missing items. I glanced over to see it was a Fluval Spec Desktop. I walked over and asked the manager if she would sell it at a discount to me, as I checked and all it was missing was the filter media (Easily replaceable and sold right there for cheap).
The manager threw up her arms, and offered it to me for $30. WOO! I jumped on it, and picked up the filter media, now I am glancing at my new computer desk, realizing its not building itself, and therefore I must build it before I can put the tank on it to set it up! haha
I can't wait to get it up and cycled and to stick my shrimps in it.
