It's what prompted me back into the hobby after a bit of a hiatus. I've got a 29g FW community set up to re-learn while I figure out what I want to do with it. The wife & I are talking about rearranging the living room and setting up an in-wall w/sump in the basement - either Oscar/Cichlid or reef. I told her if we go reef, I want a bio/nano cube first to learn how to take care of corals.... I've had a FOWLR, but have never done reef, so I'm a bit nervous.

I recently 3 months ago picked up a 90 Gallon plumbed tank with 2 brand new canister filters and wet/dry sump with soild oak stand and hood lights and all. Oh and a $65.00 store credit to the LFS

For the whopping amount of $300.00

Heard about the tank from my LFS and they refered me to the seller.

Well.... I mentioned that as the best part of the deal.

My grandpa was into breeding & raising various kinds of fish, but his favorites were his Oscars (many large tanks.... , and he's the one who taught me the aquarium craft that runs in the family blood). When he passed, my uncle moved in and took over the "operation", but slowly dismantled quite a bit of it since he still works & didn't have the time. He called & asked if I wanted some of it because he was trying to clean out a small corner of the basement for something else.

At the time I picked up the 150, I also snabbed the 29 tank/stand/hood/light that I mentioned above, a 55 tank/stand/hood/light, a few air pumps, water pumps, Fluval canisters, and it's just the proverbial tip of the iceberg of what's in that basement......

In my area there are a couple of full 75gal complete setups on CL for $150. Problem for me is, they're already stocked and full.
