My new tank!!!

So, I've learned the good way, that being addicted to craigslist pays off.....today I came across a 150 Gallon fish tank, lights and lids, with a stand for $75!!!!!!!! I have no idea what kind of shape it's in, or what...but the guy said it holds water as it used to be used for turtles....so friggin pumped!!

150 Gallons!!

Just thought I'd share! Now the question.....where do I begin to think of a stocking list for this....I may also try salt-water aquarium....always wanted one of those, but always told myself to wait for a bigger tank....

and well here it is...!!!!

whoot whoot!

I'm not really leaning towards any breed of fish at all right now....I'm really leaning towards storing the tank for a while, and then when I have the room I think I'll set it up....the more I read about them, the more I am looking towards a saltwater tank.....they just amaze me.

They are costly....but I get a year-end bonus at my job around 2G's....which I usually blow on something stupid haha, but I'll think I'll take the time to invest and buy everything right the first time...

I would also probably do a "build" post....always wanted to do one of those too....gonna head to the book store and buy a book on salt-water aquariums, or just read around on here too.....either way I'm stoked!!!

Oh man you got a great deal! I plan on maybe trying a salt water next year when I buy a house and can have a big tank to. I will be interested in seeing how yours turns out.

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.
