I grew up in Tewksbury but left at 18. I completely understand about South Shore traffic bc I lived there before coming north. Traffic is still hideous on 93 South/Rte 3 South getting through Boston all the way through Braintree. And then the Cape triffic kicks in after Memorial Day on the weekends.

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.

Wish I had the room for a 125 tank

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.

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