a few weeks ago I bought a 75 gallon, stand, and canopy from a guy down in Salem. By the time I got down there and found his house (closer to Corvallis) it was dark and I couldn't get a good look at everything. I noticed the stand had water stains, but he said it was solid oak and I planned on painting it so that wasn't to much of a concern. The aquarium was supposed to be scratch free, it had dried algae on it so I couldn't see if there were scratches, I took the guys word for it and bought it. Turns out the tank is pretty scratched up. I'm thinking of just going out and buying a new tank, and selling this one on craigslist. does anyone know of a cheap place in town? It needs to be 75 gallons since I'm using the stand and canopy. oh yeah, most of the stand was particle so I ended up doing a complete restore. Safe to say I got hosed.
