I used a 55g for qt for quite a while. Great big tank for that purpose. Then again, I was qt'ing pretty large fish. lol

But yeah, for $35 bucks I'd grab that up and keep it. You never know when you might need it.

I'm trying to find a pretty much complete tank for a reasonable price so I don't have to buy another skimmer and such

I currently have a 75g freshwater but was thinking of selling it to downsize or change but should I just add a overflow and stick with what I got or be patient and find "that deal" like I did today on the 55g lol

Kinda depends on what you want to keep in the new tank. If you are looking to keep tangs I would wait it out until you find a 100+ gallon size used. BUT if you just want fish and some corals you could use the existing 75g.
I found my 180g tank, fully loaded, didnt need to buy anything else for $500. It also came with over 300lbs of live rock. It was the deal of the century to me, those types of deals do come along just have to be in the right place at the right time.

Well right now I don't think I should go any bigger than what I have but if I come across that kind of deal I'll jump on it for sure. There is a 46g bow front with filters skimmer 30+ lbs of LR fish and more for $75 but they haven't responded to me!? Lol

My motto is go big or go home. I bought a complete 55 last June and upgraded to my 150 in sept. of course I prefer large tanks and I wanted a blue hippo tang. Carey you robbed them people with the 180. Lmao
