I got my 56 gallon column tank with stand, glass top, T- 8 light strip, gravel (that I tossed, green and blue clown puke gravel, lol) a hob
filter (forget the brand), a mag float, a nice air pump, lots of airline tubing, and a jäger heater for about $80 on Craigslist. The guy was selling like 5 tanks for cheap because his wife was making him downsize, lol. The people selling it lived not ten minutes away from my mom, so she came to pick me up and we went and got it. It wouldn't fit in my car, and she has an SUV. Actually we had a little trouble fitting it in there too... Unfortunately that is about the only good deal on tanks I've found on Craigslist in my area.
