Ok thank you. I'll have to look into it.

Ok- so I'm looking at this 50gal on Craigslist. Should I go for it?! $50 is what she's asking. It has a few chips along the edge but she said it doesn't leak.

Doesn't look to bad for 50 bucks...looks like it is a tall tank. I have a 36 tall and tbh I hate that it is tall. I wish I would have known. It may give more room, but it isn't more swimming room just a reason to need more powerful lighting for your corals.

I agree. I would take a long tank any day over a tall tank. Better opportunities for rockscaping.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I'm going to go have a look at it and see what I think. I was wondering how it would do with corals since its tall and not long. There's a 125 for $75... That's too big for my house though!

Just remember the taller the tank the stonger the lights you need to grow those corals on the bottom of the tank. Shallower is better not just because of lighting but because of rock scaping layout like carey said previously.

Trying to get a 55 gallon long tank with stand and lights for $150 off Craigslist. Hopefully the guy coming to look at my scuba gear today buys about $200 to $300 worth...or all of it. That would be even better. LOL!! Cross your fingers for me!

I don't know exactly. I imagine it is probably 48 inches. I figured since it has some lights I could at least get started with a FOWLR set up and upgrade the lights later. It's been on Craigslist for a while so at least I don't have to worry about someone else swooping in on it before I get a chance to go look at it. I'm really hoping the stand looks good.
