Should I get these tanks?

Opinions needed, I have the opportunity to pick up 5 10gal with lights, hoods, heaters, and sponge filters. Should I pick them up?

I would since they have equipment included. Remember to factor in the cost of an air pump that will run multiple tanks.

I'd say go for it, you never know what you're going to find at a fish swap.

One thing to keep in mind as you start aquiring more tanks, is that everyone has an individual tolerance limit for the number of aquariums they can/are willing to keep. In other words, there is a limit, and once you hit that limit, fishkeeping is no longer fun anymore. Instead it becomes a chore that has to be done. Once people hit that limit, they usually either recognize it, admit it and back off on the number of tanks they are keeping, or they fail to recognize it and eventually leave the hobby because it isn't fun anymore.

Not saying that these are going to put you there. Just throwing the caution out there.
