Hah! The guy already called me. I was a little off on the pricing. He wanted $50 for just the tank, but he's willing to sell the entire setup (tank, stand, canopy, lighting, heaters, filters, crushed coral substrate, big pieces of lava rock, AND all of the fish in the tank!) for $150 total. This is a deal I cannot possibly turn down. He has mixed Africans in the tank, including a frontosa over a foot long. The guy said his labs have bred from time to time.
I've looked at a lot of Africans, and I think I just like Malawi fish better. More color varieties to be found. I'll likely be rehoming the fish I'm not after (i.e. the frontosa and other Lake T. fish) and adding more mbuna. I can't believe I won't even have to cycle this one!
All that's left to do is convince some friends to help me haul it. That means I'll have to add on the cost of a couple six packs of beer to the cost of the aquarium.
