Never mind, sold

I am most likely buying a 75 gallon for about $75! I'm very excited. I'm still waiting for details about it but just thought I'd share my excitement! This will be my biggest aquarium yet.

Good stuff. It's nice to find a cheap tank. I got my 125gal long, stand, hood, lights, sump, pump, whole thing for $300 and I sold a Eheim Pro 3 I didn't need since it had a sump for $140, so only cost me $160 for the whole thing.

20g platy, , 2 x 10g shrimp, 3 x 20g shrimp, 7.5g shrimp and 1 great dane/mastiff puppy.

Yeah I'm excited, I will probably be turning my 10 gallon into a small sump for the tank. It's gonna have some different fish in it that I've been wanting. Still have to see details but I'll know pretty soon!

OH man!! Love those finds.. The setup I just finished with was a 75 gallon with stand and a bunch of H.O.B.s, glass tops, etc... I picked that up off craigslist for $50!!! Now it looks like a $1000 dollar setup!

Congrats!

Gesh you are getting some serious deals. I was hoping to catch a $1 dollar per gallon sale but no luck for me. I'd be excited as well if I were you.

Never mind. My dad told me to offer $40 to see if I could lower the price but someone else offered 75$ even though I would have offered that before had I known. I am angry because I was told to offer the $40 but no of course it was sold. Very upset.

I find deals all the time. Probably why I have so many tanks, some set up some not. I'm no horder just want some specific tanks. And yes l have multi big tank syndrome LOL. Anyhow when you see a deal pop up best to snag it. No sense in trying to lowball someone that's already selling dirt cheap low. If you go that route 9 times out of 10 I'd be willing to bet you will lose out.

Live and Learn. Keep looking im sure you will find another deal. Maybe as good maybe as not. But still a good deal.
