My new tank!!!
 
So, I've learned the good way, that being addicted to craigslist pays off.....today I came across a 150 Gallon fish tank, lights and lids, with a stand for $75!!!!!!!! I have no idea what kind of shape it's in, or what...but the guy said it holds water as it used to be used for turtles....so friggin pumped!!

150 Gallons!! :shock::shock::shock:

Just thought I'd share! Now the question.....where do I begin to think of a stocking list for this....I may also try salt-water aquarium....always wanted one of those, but always told myself to wait for a bigger tank....

and well here it is...!!!!

whoot whoot!

African cichlids. 30 of them or A nice reef tank. What a great deal. I also found some good deals.There to.

Congrats on the new tank! Great find!

JohnnyD44 10-14-2009 08:34 PM

yeah I'm super pumped....not even sure if I have room for it, haha

but I'll find room somewhere!!!!!

I'm definitely leaning towards a nice salt-water aquarium....scary though

salt water is gonna be crazy expensive your looking at around 300-400 dollars in just the live rock lol i would go with a nice african set up or even get some oscars or even a arowanna :D
Great deal you basically stole that!!

agree a few oscars would be nice.. or even discus :O
you could have so many. oooh an arowanna isnt that a really expensive fish?

saw one on craigslist for 60$ 18 inches and disease free

what are the dimensions? also you need to know what species of arrowana your interested in, because i dont think the tank will be long enough or wide enough

I'm not really leaning towards any breed of fish at all right now....I'm really leaning towards storing the tank for a while, and then when I have the room I think I'll set it up....the more I read about them, the more I am looking towards a saltwater tank.....they just amaze me.

They are costly....but I get a year-end bonus at my job around 2G's....which I usually blow on something stupid haha, but I'll think I'll take the time to invest and buy everything right the first time...

I would also probably do a "build" post....always wanted to do one of those too....gonna head to the book store and buy a book on salt-water aquariums, or just read around on here too.....either way I'm stoked!!!

Oh man you got a great deal! I plan on maybe trying a salt water next year when I buy a house and can have a big tank to. I will be interested in seeing how yours turns out.
