Good thing billions and billions were put into the Big Dig huh? I still work in Boston but hop on the commuter raill about 40 mins. from here.

Let me know if you check it out. I'd love to hear what you think.

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

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 :(
$40... How much do you think a filter is?

Maybe 25% of TFK hahaha

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.

Defanitly worth the trip. I live 1/2 hours away and it was well worth it. He has a bunch of cichlids, apistos, goldfish, frogs and even mudskippers(fish that can live out of water for a short amount of time.

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.
That is the same with me... but this came with a stand, heater, rocks, ect. So the value is like $250+ ecause rocks from HI.

Good luck!
Wish I lived near you.


Thank you for the kind words.

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.

The Big Dig was a waste of many that we had to pay for.
