Good Luck, i wish i could find deals like that on my local CL.
I'm almost positive it was a once in a lifetime deal haha! They wanted 150 for the setup but I could only offer $100 because my paycheck sucked this week... Still can't believe they said ok lol! But now my living room looks like a Fishtank graveyard haha!

My husband is coming around lol, the saltwater idea intrigues him once the tanks are cleaned up I'll stop calling it a graveyard haha! I have a lot of work ahead of me!! Now I gotta figure out how I put this saltwater tank together, I'm totally clueless lol!!!

Great deal!!! Most CL for a setup close to this is usually listing for around 400.00

Really??? Yay!!! It's awesome to know I made a good buy some things need repairing, things that were siliconed on had fallen off so I got some work ahead of me! But for the price I don't mind spending a little elbow grease to make it perfect!

Jess and elbow grease just somehow doesn't go "hand in hand"

Haha! Hey now! I'm trying to find the time in between work and kids to get crackin on it. I've been workin a bit on the 6ft, that needs a lot more work than this one... My next day off I'm gonna scrape the old silicone off the saltwater tank where the pieces fell off and then I will have to post pics to get directions on how to put it back together... So essentially what I have is a wet/dry sump, right?? Is that what I want??? Or should I take it apart and build it differently? Here is some pics to refresh your memories

Yeah, looks like you have a drip tower and a return section. It's workable! If you wanted a fuge you could add a section in.. looks like there's space.
