Hmm, do not see it yet (no ads online yet either). May just be a time zone thing though...could always use more tanks. XD

Was just in earlier.

Those 40 breeders for $40 is tempting as hell.

The 55...I just don't care for. Much prefer the proportions of a 75. But I wonder if I should pick up a couple of those 55's and then flip them on craigs...

You won't make any money on them in this area. People are pretty cheap with their tanks here. I got a custom 25 gallon setup with everything for a bag of skittles and a framed photo of betty white a few weeks back.

"Flipping" Petco tanks on Craigslist will not earn you more than an hour, maybe two of minimum wage in profit. (ie. the amount of work you'll probably put in to buy/sell them in the first place)

I bought some tanks at the local $/gallon sale today. The 40s are just awesome, if you have good solid stands for them. Don't neglect the 20H/29/55s for ripariums, either.

He's 100% correct! Dealing with Craigslist buyers can be one of the most annoying thing you can waste your free time on. Unless you stand to gain a decent profit, selling on CL can be a giant waste of time.

40 breeders are some of my favorite tanks. I grabbed a 20 long to de rim for my planted tank, I like the long look for planted tanks. If only I could find a 33 long that isnt all scratched up in my area!

Just went out and got me a 20L. I wanted to get a 5.5G but of course that wasn't part of the sale. Would have been so perfect for a betta on my desk

They had a ton of 40B's at my local Petco. I already have two of those though lol

40B - Shrimp tank
