I find all kinds of deals on CL. If only I could talk the husband into another tank.

I've gotten numerous tanks off craigslist... 150g complete setup- $225... 125g tank/stand- $200... I think I had 6 55g tanks up at one point, all for less than $100, two of them were actually free. I will NEVER buy a new tank again. I paid over $300 for my 40 breeder tank and stand. I get sick thinking about it

Sadly all good deals on craigslist and eBay are out of my area -__- the last thing I want to do is get the tank from petco. 230 just for the tank and hood. NO THANKS.

All hope may not be lost. I might get this guys 70 gallon. 51 bucks! It's suppose to be for a SW tank, but ill clean it out really good. Comes with a skimmer, 100 lbs of dead rock. A heater hood light. And more. Ill save the 100 pounds of live rock for my SW tank and the skimmer.
