Here is a pic of mine. The two white bulb things are the floats and behind them is the hose coming in. I have two floats so if one sticks the other one will shut down the pump.

Thanks! I was looking into building a stand, then I was thinking maybe i would just buy a new tank since there are several things that I don't like about mine. Came across this. I'm in deep guys.

As long as it doesn't leak or have any cracks I would buy it. You have everything you need for it on your 55. Your brother can just build the right size stand.

That's the plan! I'm so excited! And it's drilled for an overflow and a sump. I'm going to look at it tomorrow morning at 10, since the guys working tonight.

I don't have anyone to help me load it up, so that ones a no go. I did go look at a 100 gallon today to make sure it was really a 6 ft tank and that it holds water. I'm thinking that will be my upgrade. I was not going to upgrade, but they're asking 300 and I wouldn't pay much less for a 55. I'm going to try and haggle just a little. I'm hoping a larger amount of water will be easier to manage, plus, this one has a brace. It will need a lot of cleaning. There's a turtle in there now.

Then you can use your 55 as a sump. 155 gallons total water volume. So jealous.

155 minus rock displacement, can't forget about rock displacement. Would make for a nice system.

Ahhh. I wish!! See, that's the catch! Broke college student, here. Lol. I'm going to have to sell my 55 or afford this tank. But I think it'll be worth it. I want the drilled one. If I got the drilled one, it would be cheap enough that my 55 would be my sump, hands down.
