OMG got a 150 gallon tank set up for next to nothing

i traded a car amp medium sized.and a car radio for a full wood stand and canopy and solid glass tank with sump all pumps and what not.the guy used it as a fresh but the guy he bought it from used as salt.im SOOOOO HAPPY WHAT A SCORE!
pics are from this morning when me and 3 other people finally got it in my house. this thing is a monster tank alone weights 300 lbs!






finally set it up after 3 hrs.took 2 of my other tanks and combined then together.

Why is there a giant bucket in there? It takes a lot away visually from the tank? Is there no way to use some rocks and slate or something to make it look more visually appealing and create a big cave (which is what I assume the bucket is there for).

I noticed the bucket in his other tank its the big fish's house so he would miss it if it was gone. Tanks coming along nicely imo just needs some height to the aqua scape - maybe a nice driftwood branch going up?

That would make sense. Haven't you heard? We make yogurt, not sense.

Nice score Congrats.

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

Great steal! The second stump decoration, I have the same one!!
Maybe you could paint, or 3d decorate the bucket to look like another stump?
You have beautiful fish!

Nice job!!! Cool cichlid I belive.

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.
