So, my girlfriend's dad is a huuuuuge thrift store buff. He goes to a couple local thrift stores on an almost daily basis. Being fish geeks, my girlfriend asked him to keep an eye out for good deals on fish tanks.
So today, he calls her up and lets her know that he found a giant tank, stand and canopy included, for $400, but since he's such good buddies with the staff of the store he can talk them down to around $220 or so.
Get this: the tank measures ten feet long by 3 feet wide by 2.5 feet tall. By my calculations, that's roughly 560 gallons!
I think we're going to be buying the tank and keeping it in storage (i.e. in my mom's basement, haha) until we have a place big enough to hold such a monster tank.
I've only just received this news, so of course I have no idea what I'd keep in it, although I can think of more than a few things....
