Planning To Sell A 15g Tank

I'm starting to feel like i should sell the 15g tank for 60 dollars. Why 60 dollars? because it contains, the tank, of course, a hood with regular lighting color, and a filter, with extra pads. And also a heater with fish food.
Note: i just edited it because i was in a hurry to post the thread because i had to go somewhere, i think? added a heater with fish food...

Wow. I got a 15g tank kit from Wal-mart (my LFS) that had tank, lid, light fixture, bulb, heater, HOB filter, filter carts, water conditioner, fish food, and a net. I b'leeve it was $50.

I just paid $40 for a bare tank at Petco, but I was in a pinch.

I'd never pay $60 for a used 15g.

That's really expensive. I would never pay that in a million years.

I got my 40, with stand, filter, heater, fake plants, an airstone, an air pump, and a bunch of other random odds and ends, for 35 bucks.

I got my 29 with filter, 2 heaters, fake plants, and some other stuff for 25 bucks.

60 bucks for a used 15? Come on. What kind of filter is it? How many pads are there. Is it just a standered flourexcant light bulb?

Paid 50 for used 35g Hex with the SAME stuff and MORE.

Paid 35 for used 55g.

Even with that stuff no way man. Maybe for HALF that MAYBE! but i doubt it. if i was selling all that used i would slap 20.00 on it and be done.

I paid $20 for my used 29gal with filter, heater, decor, and lights.

You won't get $60.

You might get $25, but probably $10-15 more likely.

where you guys get tanks so cheap? I'm looking for some, but chicago craigslist usually has 50g with stand no filter or that stuff for upwards of 100, some asking 200, which I wouldn't pay for used at all.

Im in a Local Fish Club, most of my used tanks have come from other club members.

Small tanks i just buy at the store cause they are cheap anyway. Wal Mart is your friend for Dry Goods, and Cheap smaller tanks!

Garge sales are some of the best places to get used tanks.

I get my best buys at thrift stores. There is a manager at one that will let me know if there is one on the back waiting to come out. One they had a 75 with a pretty decent stand for less than $50 but I had no way of getting it home! Sometimes on craigslist I find deals.

You have got to be kidding.

I paid:
180 paid $100 w/stand
125 paid $300 craigslist w/oak stand
240 w/stand & canopy and Ocean Clear filters free from friend.
29 paid $10 cant remember where I got it.
20L $20 Petsmart or Petco sale.

You will be lucky to get more than $25-$35
