im beating dollar per gallon..

During this dollar a gallon season I've been getting more fortunate.. just before I pulled out from someone's curb 1 55 gal and 3 10gals.. main reason for the 55 is brother in law may set up office tank. But with the 10s I might breed shrimp.

I think he's a little excited about his new tanks, but who wouldn't be. Nice finds!

Well my main reasons for snagging them is 1 my brother in law wants one I think.. and I have to practice drilling for the reef tank I'm setting up.. plus it'll be good to know I can drill a tank for a sump, for maybe future discus down the road. Also I have the rack downstairs and may breed shrimpies

I have gotten a 55, 40, 40, 40, 20, 20, 20, 20, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10 all for free. I usually post on Kijiji a wanted free tanks and get replies. Lots of people have tanks sitting in their basement from when the kids wanted a fish tank SOOOO bad, the fish died in 3 weeks, they got bored, packed up the tank and then it's sat there.

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

Sump Pimp #2
