I ended up backing out on the 165 - it just seems to big for what I want to start. I will continue hard looking for a 75 to start up with.

What about this one - it is a little small, but better than nothing I guess.

Pros.- you get everything for 300 bucks
.dont have to wait for tank to cycle
You get coral live rock along with everything to run a sw tank

Cons- you lose on the adventure bc everything is ready you really dont need much besides livestock you want. Moving large tanks suck eapecially when you.move them in a vehicle. Not drilled but has overflow box.

It really comes down to what you want to do. You can still get the tank and just stary over sale the coral and fish if you like. Thats if you want to have the adventure of a reef aquarium and really expand your knowledge.

If you want some quick and pretty fpr the home then keep everything.

Really depends what you want out of this hobby. I believe it is a good deal. If you get drop the price to 250 and tell them you will pick it up that day amd they will usually do it.

I read that he said that he had to many aquariums you may ask if he has any more. Maybe drilled or a 75 gal.

If you hopes was for a 75 you can always wait. It seems to me when I just take something bc I get tired of waiting and spend money what I wanted pops up a week later.

and remember if you see something you want on craigslist if its to much but close to what you would pay for it. Drop your price in there you may get it. Many people are wanting tp get rid pf this stuff so dont be afraid to try and cut there price. Many people will raise it bc they know it will get cut. So if you really want a 75 gal and the price is a little high cut the price all they can say is no.

Did you start a 75 salt? What is your setup? What was your start up cost if you don't mind me asking.
