Well, we bought a tank... but I got cold feet about the total price after filter, plants, etc. So I made my hubby take it back... but I called the store last night and they dropped the price further on the tank... I am tempted to go back and get it again! It is a great deal. One store by me had the set for $616 ON SALE... this store is selling it for $358!!!! I am so torn...

Here are the pictures I took of the tank while we had it:

Your kitchen is nice with the baker's rack, but I like it even better with the tank! That is a deal... did you look on line just in case to make sure that's the best price? I can't imagine you'd be able to get that for less including the stand, which is really nice by the way.

I have not been able to find it online... plus it is a two piece set... I think shipping for the tank would be awful! The other kicker is that I have been told it is being discontinued... that is why both stores had it on sale...

Ok, I would have to buy it then! :) My kitchen is very similar to yours, with similar white cabinets, wood floor and dark (granite) counters. I would LOVE that tank if I had the room. My son (8 yrs old) has a tank in his room. It's a 3 gallon and it's decorated with all neon accessories! Both my kids LOVE the tanks.

I'm not sure if you've had fish before or not, but keep in mind it will take lots of patience (and money) to get it up and running properly.

But I really do like it! How many gallons is it? I want to get something similar, but I can't fit it in my kitchen, so it would have to go right off the kitchen on the edge of the dining room. Is that too weird, in the dining room?

This is a 58 gallon. I was hoping to put on in my dining room, but there is really no room there. I thought the kitchen idea was weirder. I have had tanks off and on for 15 years or so (although I am far from an expert on this...). I just have to figure out if our budget can swing this... it is such a good deal and it looks so nice in there. I hate to pass it up.

That's really funny about the location of our tanks! LOL

I say go for it! I want a 50 gallon also. It's a really nice tank, it matches the kitchen and it makes your kitchen look streamlined and not cluttered (if only I could do that to my kitchen, with or without the tank! LOL). Look at it this way-since you've had tanks before you know you'll have to stock it slowly, so the actual fish won't cost too much all at once in that regard. Are you going to make your husband nuts by telling him to go get the tank again??
