I always find it helps to posted wanted ad's. Where I am Kijiji is big, not craiglist and I post looking for old tanks, filters, lights sitting in your basement for free or cheap and I get replies of people who bought a tank, the kids fish died in 3 weeks and its sat there empty for a few years wanting to get rid of it and out of their basement.
So far I'm gotten a free 55gal with lights, 40gal, 4 10gals, paid $20 for a box of filters, all Aquaclears, heaters, air pumps, and $300 for my 120gal with lights, sump, pump, stand, bioballs, hood, whole works. Timing is key though. For kijiji, you can get the RSS feed from it, so I use a RSS reader and ad's come up first on there before even active on the site, so I set it refresh every minute and I get deals that the public can't even see yet. Not sure if CL uses RSS as well.
On my local forum we have a overprice CL/Kijiji ad's thread to post ad's and make fun of. The last was $850 for a 65gal with stand, 2 1 bulb T8 lights and a small Eheim Classic filter and a bunch of plastic plants.
20g platy, , 2 x 10g shrimp, 3 x 20g shrimp, 7.5g shrimp and 1 great dane/mastiff puppy.
