250 I"d set up that up hardcore Discus....

you guys wanna here something CRAZY?!?!?! so, we went and looked at the 250...not only does it come with tank, stand, hood lights....but it was a salt water tank that was seriously neglected....has about 225 pounds of live rock, a couple fish (that the guy flushed just before we got there ALIVE!!) some starfish Mostly britle stars. comes with everything anyone would need for a saltwater setup. we thought about keeping it salt...but the reason we even wanted a tank so big was for our oscars. so we thought about keeping the 150 for the SA and doing reef with the 250...but i had to put my foot down....we are running out of living space (for the human part of the household). AND we only paid $300!!! we sold the live rock to my lfs for $150...so technically we only paid 150 for this monster


ps....also picked up a 20 long today as a 3rd qt/hospital

OMG he did NOT do this....some people......urg!

Sure glad for your finding there!!!! You need to go shopping for a cube for me (something like 40-50g) I been searching a cube FOREVER here now....no luck (too country I guess).

there are cubes EVERYWHERE here..lots on craigslist...both tanks we picked up this past week, the 150 & 250 we got on there...we did have to drive a little to get them...the 150 was about 45 minutes one way...the 250 is in the next county north of here, but its a straight shot from my house to his in tampa
