I had a 58 gal that I got used on Craigslist because I wanted the tank stand that came with it. Tried to resell the tank only but got no bites so put it in the basement with the personal rule that everything on it had to be low cost and used. I put a used Eheim canister filter and old T5HO lights on it to make it a low tech tank. No substrate except in pots for a few stem plants that I really like and didn't want to toss. I am also going to try out various substrates in the pots (Tropica, Seachem, and Controsoil). Growing out anubias and needle leaf java fern on rocks, and soaking some small pieces of driftwood I got on a business trip. Doing 1/2 EI dosing once a week to minimize water changes. Stuck 3 ottos in there even though I see no algae. So far so good - great overflow tank for pruned cuttings, grow out of plants tied to rocks, grow out of plants on new pieces of wood. Low maintenance and low cost. I check on it every other day when I make it to the basement but I really don't do much to it.
