I'll see your 150 gallon with glass tops, knotty pine stand built like a truck that somehow precisely matched our walls O_o and raise you a pile of rocks $398... lol

Of course I spent another $100 plus sweat equity (during the drought last summer, redoing the silicone seams x_x)...

I got a 90 full set up with t-5's coralife super skimmer 125, 40 gallon Fuge, koralia power heads x2, drilled with stand and a mag 7 for free. This lady posted it and said her boyfriend or husband had cheated and if you could have it gone within the hour it was yours. I typed in the address grabbed my bro and beat 8 people to it as we were loading it up and breaking it down they rolled by. Fastest break down ever! Only lost one fish, a damsel.... (Not bragging but I was pretty proud to have done all that in an hour)

Too many tanks? GASP! How could that be?

17! Holy crap I hope that most were under 40. That's a lot of tanks.

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.

Hey! Don't forget yard sales. I found a 10 gallon with hob filter and light/hood last year. They had $20 and I got it for $10 w/o knowing if tank leaked or filter worked. The filter alone was worth $20. The tank still holds water to this day.
