I'm just selling off tanks I dont need and will flip that moneyinto more tank gear and fish.

I love my cichlid tank but the community tank while it is very cool and pretty is just not for me. Got that sold for $140 just waiting for my firend to pick it up. Also have had a bunchof calls on my $100 55g that I bought for resale so I'll only make like $30 off that setup.

I paid $200 for the new drilled 90g with all the trimmings.

All still shrink wrapped and in original boxes. I got a heck of a deal. I'm ashamed to even admit the price whichis why I havent til now.

So as you can see, craigslist CAN be your best friend. First deal of that magnitude I've found so far, other than 150lbs of dead base rock for $50 which some schmuck beat me to by like 15 minutes. So just keep looking, I search within an hour an a half distance for items. This setup was 50 miles from my house but well worth the gas money and the 2 hour trip.

That's ok. My friend got a 90g drilled. Stand. canopy. Lights. Sump. Ro/di and all the fixings for $400 a week ago. And I'm loving my 210 with everything I got for $1200. So deals r everywhere just have to be open and look for them.

Can't wait to see this tank come together.

Just got a picture of twitchy and pootie together! they are constantly swimming back and forth together now. SOO glad they made friends. Just hope the tomini tang will fit in as easily.

Nice picture. i had a quick question. When you already have tangs and you buy another is it best that the new one you have bought is the same size or bigger than the ones you already have? Thanks

I intentionally got a larger tomin so that if there were trouble at least he would be size comparable. the threee tangs Ihave are almost all the same size, the blue is the smallest of the three so far. I still have another week and a half til I can put the tomini in as well.

The best case scenario is to add all the tangs at once but since I couldn't I went this route. I was looking at a scopas tang but he was way too small and if he did get picked on I don't think he could have held his own.

Thanks for asking, he's still in the 55 qt and eating ans swimming like normal. Only weird thing is he dug a hole under a rock and sleeps there like my blue tang did. LOL The lfs said that wasnt really normal for tomini's but if he was looking ok then it should be fine. I think I have a weird fish. LOL
