Cool Holy Aquarium Supplies..!

So. I just got a load of not one, but two peoples' used aquarium supplies. One is from my mother who's moving to Maine, and wants me to keep her 14 gallon guppy tank (I begrudgingly agreed, but the little buggers aren't that bad. The tank is a MESS though.) And with that, a few heaters, air pumps, several filters, tons of flake food and fake plants (AGH).

The second is a friend of hers who can no longer maintain her tanks, so there I received a 75 gallon tank (), another giant HOB filter, heaters, enormous castle decorations (again, agh). Also thrown in are various-sized nets, airline tubing, pythons, etc.

I'm about to lose my mind! I don't know where to start first, gutting the guppy tank and planting it..organizing these boxes of stuff..selling parts of it..wow.

All I know is..I have a free 75 gallon tank!? I was going to use it for my breeder axolotls once they mature..but now..wait..I could have discus in a giant planted 75. I just thought I'd share!

Thanks. My apartment's basically a mini-aquarium shop with all the plants/axolotls/GBR I'm growing.

That is awesome! I wanted to a 75 or 100 gallon tank...but I am moving 4 states away in about 2 years...so I decided to wait until then to get bigger tanks. But you got it for free...and a bunch of cool stuff to go with it! Awesome! Have fun!

Man, that must really suck! I would hate for my house to look like a mini aquarium shop. And a free 75 gallon tank? I'll pass.

OK, back to reality! Nice score

Hahaha! :P Anyone want a giant castle? I'm going to assault the S&S once I borrow my sister's camera. I sold mine because I'm a poor mofo.

That is sweet! I love getting aquarium 'crap' from people. I got three huge boxes in the mail which had a TON of aquarium and terrarium supplies including a NIB canister filter.
