Just found a 30 gallon tank with everything but the water fish and filter. Picking up Monday.

Thank you craigslist!

Sorry if there is spelling and grammer mistakes above. I am not good with either.
If you have fish or plants you need to get rid of pm me I am always looking for more.

There is a guy from Quincy who places ad's on CL, he's breaking down his fish room. He was selling tanks cheap. I think he had a 125gl for $100.

Nice score

How much did you pay for it? I see tons of great deals on CL Boston and north but have no room for another tank :(

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

I miss Lovely Pets in Quincy. I moved two years ago and still haven't found a great local fish store here :(

How many of us live in this area o.O

I'm North of Boston, haven't found a good local store either. Was thinking of driving down to check out Uncle Ned's in Millis, it's an hour drive each way though so don't know if it's worth the trip.

I check out CL every so often, sometimes I see good deals on large tanks. Smaller tanks though people often want too much. Anything 55 gallons and under I'm not paying more than $0.50 a gallon unless it comes with a stand ;) Petco does $1/gallon sales on brand new tanks often enough that's my benchmark.

Im from Ma too, Hudson to be exact.

As far as good locals, there is Tropic Isle in Framingham. Good place but expensive.
There is a awesome place in Worcester "All new tropical world" Its small and its hit or miss as far as inventory but he does have some really nice fish. He tries to set himself apart for the rest. Its cash only and the prices are the cheapest I've seen anywhere. And, the owner is the nicest guy.
Neds has some really nice fish as well and lots of them too.
Im looking for a place in NH that sells Piranha...if anyone knows who got them, let me know

Not sure exactly how far north you are but it's def worth taking a trip to Quincy for livestock. They also had a ton of plants but at the time that I lived there I had silk so never bought any.

I've seen Piranha at Zoo Creatures in Plaistow NH but haven't looked at their stock in a while. It might be worth a phone call to them.

Good luck!

I'm near Lowell. Might be worth a weekend trip, but on weekdays I hate going anywhere near Boston.
