still need to go to lowes to get the glass for the top, then the hd to get the gravel. Then I'll need to drill the top for the misting heads & some ventilation, then I'll put in a base layer of eco-as mix from my 20 for plant growth, then some coir on top of that. Order some broms, put in the moss, get some DW, and I'm done, but then I need the FF and the frogs

Sure could I'm actually wanting to break down my 10 vert, too bad you don't live close to me. I could ship it though, I have the packing peanuts. I could let you have it for $15 to cover the cost of the tank + the glass for the door. Shipping shouldn't be too much either. But, you should at least try a little tank. They are lots of fun and grow plants really fast

Oh, and don't buy the kits, they cost a lot more than they are worth IMO. The tanks are great though! I got this one for $195 shipped Could have gotten it for $185 shipped if I had seen the coupon one day earlier >

You can get the glass for the bottom piece and the door a lowes for about $4, they'll cut it for you
