Deal of a lifetime!

I wanted to share with you guys the Deal i got on this new aquarium.

The new big one - 50 gallon Freshwater fish tank

It is a 50 Gallon with stand, tons of decorations, high and normal PH/ammonia/nitrate test kits, lots of food, a gravel cleaner that hooks up to the tap and sucks the water out then puts it back in. 1g jug of both cycle bacteria and water conditioner, extra filter material, 3 different sized nets, and the best part about this set-up is the Filter, it is a Rena XP4 i looked it up on the manufacturer Website and they have them on sale right now for $249.99 it is recommended for up to 250gal (300gal with extra filter material) the lady bought it only 6 months ago. i think that is a little overkill for a 50gal but hey all the better right?

I also got about 40 Guppy Fry that were living in the filter when i brought it home. And a whole lot of MTS

I got all this for a whopping $125.00!!!! i couldn't believe it i think this lady was a little crazy, and desperate cause she was moving and couldn't take it with her.

Big Jump up for me from my 10gal LOL!

What do you think?
