you guys wanna here something CRAZY?!?!?! so, we went and looked at the 250...not only does it come with tank, stand, hood lights....but it was a salt water tank that was seriously neglected....has about 225 pounds of live rock, a couple fish (that the guy flushed just before we got there ALIVE!!) some starfish Mostly britle stars. comes with everything anyone would need for a saltwater setup. we thought about keeping it salt...but the reason we even wanted a tank so big was for our oscars. so we thought about keeping the 150 for the SA and doing reef with the 250...but i had to put my foot down....we are running out of living space (for the human part of the household). AND we only paid $300!!! we sold the live rock to my lfs for $150...so technically we only paid 150 for this monster


ps....also picked up a 20 long today as a 3rd qt/hospital

What a sweet deal. Congrats.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

if only my family down there was tank-smart and could get me one and bring it with their next visit.....I'd LOVEEEEE to have a cube finally
