Yup 55g and stand comes with 2 filters, a powerhead, crushed coral for substrate (not too sure what the deal is with that just yet), 2 air pumps, nets foods, salts and "small stuff" whatever that may be

But seriously a 55g alone no tech stuff just the tank and 4 figure 8's for $100 sounds pretty fair to me (leaving all political nightmares aside here)

Sounds like he was keeping them in brackish water with the crushed coral and salts included in the set up.

@ Natalie: I would be tempted as well. I would love to have another big tank. Just go with your gut feeling and what is best for you guys right now.

You might slow down a bit because if things get as bad as it sounds they might, ain't none of us gonna be able to keep fish at all. Adding that many more is that many more that will be (use your imagination here). Flushed, killed, dumped, you name it. Maybe what you have should be what you have and leave it there.

Just saying
Hi, I have not been around much....a lot I have had to do and changes to make, but I just had to respond to this. I always try to be optimistic and pray and hope things turn out ok, but i have to say, I agree with you. Things don't look too good and something is weird in the government and white house and not setting right with me at all.

Not to stay off topic, but me being not even 20 yet and feeling a bit uneasy with the way the world is, is probably a sign. The only reason I don't worry anymore is because I know my job is secure. People are always going to need to ship things, so thus I'll always have a job.

Twenty-Eight:
1 Otos, 6 Guyana Leaf Fish, 2 Malayan Leaf Fish, 1 Orange Head Tapajos, 4 Bronze Cories, 3 Peppered Cories, 2 Panda Cories, 1 Skunk Cory

Seventy-Five:
3 Thread-finned Acara, 1 Jurupari, 1 Spiny Eel, 1 Bristlenose Pleco, 1 Festivum, 1 Spotted Raphael

Natalie...

Sit down. Pour yourself a drink. Just relax for a few minutes and ask yourself, "is there really any logical reason to NOT get this fish tank?"

Unless you've been brainwashed since yesterday or something, you're not going to come up with one because, let's face it, $100 for a fully equipped 55g full of puffers is just too good to pass up.

Plus, you LOVE puffers. Can you really say no to a face like this?

LMAO Good morning - I need a good laugh this AM....and no logically there's no reason to say no...I think that's how I winded up with some 7-8 tanks in my house before there was no logical reason to say now The only "problem" I see here is me not having had Puffers before/ haven't had to deal with brakish set ups before.....so simple stuff like "How much salt will I need to add" I wouldn't know
