Good deal?

I have been looking for a new tank, and was wondering if this was a good deal?

honestly, if space isnt an issue, this is a better deal imo... the cracked center support would worry me, as well as the scratches in the acrylic..

Unfortanatley, space is an issue, plus being in a rental dose not help much, and we have to move this summer, so I am looking for a smaller setup (more than 65, less than 110)

75 or 90, is about the only other options you have. Since you are planning on moving in 7 months or so I would suggest waiting until you move before setting up a mid sized tank.

75 is a great size tank to start with. It gives you some options for fish as well as a little room for error as you are learning how to maintain the system. I still say avoid setting it up until you move.

I cannot stand my 55g anymore, it is too hard to deal with, so I was thinking about selling just the stand, tank, canopy, and versa tops, and keeping the rest
