Where to buy used equipment

I am trying to find an old Oceanic aquarium stand - one of those nice, all wood ones not made anymore. I have a tank already and just want the matching stand.

I am diligently looking on Craigslist Chicago. Oceanic also made reef tanks way back so I am wondering if I should look on some other forum sites in Chicago. Obviously having a stand shipped to me is out of the question so it has to be local.

Any suggestions on where to look besides Craigslist Chicago (and TPT Illinois)?

I have an oceanic 58 gallon used tank so the stand would need to be 36 x 18. Oceanic used to make those really nice oak stands so I would love to pick up one of those if possible.

Close, but not quite right. If you have any other friends with a 36 x 18 Oceanic stand, have them PM me. That stand fits a 58 gal, but also a 40 breeder and 50 gal too I believe.

Do you have a pic of what the oceanic stand looks like? I bought a 58 gallon 36x18 off some guy on craigslist almost a year ago.. didn't take the stand because i wanted to try building my own. I don't know if the tank or stand was oceanic and it's probably a long shot but I'm sure I could track down that email address in my history.

I appreciate you helping me out - even if its a long shot! I have seen a few different sizes of the oak stand and they all look the same - I think it came in black, cherry, and light oak stains. They were made of oak - you can see the grain on the doors. I believe this is an old Oceanic picture when they sold these years ago. I don't care about the color as I'll either refinish it or paint it black.
