I can get a 100 gal+stand and everything for free!!!!!!!

So I called my lfs to inquire about prices on hoods for nano reefs (was thinking of starting one), and she told me: "Ah, now I recognize who you are. Tell you what, I know someone who wants to get rid of his tank. It's 60x20x20 inch. Here's his number."
This lady is always super friendly to me, it's a mom and pop lfs.

Anyways. Gonna call tonight to inquire about the tank!!! It's full of malawi cichlids and I have to take them as well, but maybe I can drop em of at my lfs. I don't have room to set this tank up right now, but I would be dumb to let go of this good deal. All equipment is included. I can store it in the garage, and my dad's moving anyway in a couple of months, so I'll have room to set it up there.

Yayyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!I'm Excited!!!!

Just called the lfs and they are willing to take the fish in. They even want to hold them for me for a couple of months until I find room to set everything up, but I'm thinking of making that tank into a SA-theme tank So they can sell 'em and I'll get me some discus..........or altums...........

Sweet! You could always just give it to me and I could make room to set it up.

If you pay for shipping to the U.S., I'll consider it cJw
But I think it will be cheaper to buy yourself a brand new one then to pay for shipping from Europe on a giant glass tank :P

I could consider turning it into a reef...........now THAT would be nice! But expensive.....

So I called 3 times tonight, but noone is answering. Will try again tommorow. Apparently the woman who is giving the tank away is a lawyer. So in my logic that means: quality aquarium and equipment

What would you guys stock a 100 gal tank with?

*Moans* Another freshie finds an opportunity to go over to the other side.

That is a sweet deal Thomas...even I'm excited for you. A;though to be honest, I can't say that I blame you. It's times like these that I wish you were my neighbor.

Note: Are you implying that lawyers are neat? Have you seen a lawyer's office? LOL

Why don't I come across deals like that? I find myself having to pay for everything. But I'd stock it with cichlids.
