Check out the score

So I was doing the garage sale thing last week and came across one with fish stuff. I got all this following stuff for 80 bucks.

First all these large decorations. Easily 50 dollar ornaments in the stores that I think I can get 10-15 bucks for each on Craigslist. Plus the two large powerheads in the picture.

Then I got all these plastic plants that I just threw in this tank for fun.

Then I also got a 15 gallon(guess) hexagon tank and then 2 of those small, Wal-mart carried, triangle shaped mini aquarium with all 3 coming with filters and junk.

So yeah I got all that for $80 bucks plus it all came in this lovely 90gallon tank with stand, hood, weak lights and an emperor 400 filter.

Not to shabby, hey. Think I can sell all the extras and decorations for around 50-60 bucks and I will end up with this tank, stand, and hood for about $20.00.

So I know this has been asked before so I won't ask what's your best deal on an aquarium ever but I do want to compare a couple deals. I once got a 240 gallon tank with no stand, lights or anything for a hundred dollars.

Which of these two deals do you think was better? I flipped the 240 for $300 dollars after 2 years of use so its going to be hard to beat that deal.

Thanks for looking and sharing with my happiness. Going to pose a question in the lighting forum about a question in lighting this beast so please go check that out if you have some ideas.

16 tanks

75 long
75 standard
2 55 acrylics
62 Glass
1 55 glass
1 55 hex
3 29 gallon
1 15 gallon
4 10 gallon
1 5.5

All for $75 most have lights, filters, and heaters and half have stands....

Just reread the post and you said you wouldn't ask okay me bad....

I would say the 90 is the better deal because you can recoup and still have a tank in the end.

I have both halves of that castle on the right. They are $50.00 a piece, so a good steal indeed!
