Craigslist

So I was playin on craigslist last night on my iPod and for some reason I started looking and trucks then moved over to boats and then I some how ended up looking at fish tanks just to see what was out there around my area lol. While I was "just looking" I came across a post that said "free fish tank" it didn't give the size or anything about it all it said was it came with a plecosomis and you had to drain it yourself and it came with a stand. The lady gave her name and number. When I started to find my phone to call my wife found the post then found my phone and hid them both from me she said I didn't need another tank lol. Has anyone else ever had an experience like this one? lol.

Do you mean the wife hiding the phone and saying no more tanks or free stuff on craigslist? Lol I have gotten snails and a couple of fish from CL. I bought all my tanks used through CL as well. Five tanks is as many as I have room for though but I still get the jitters when I see a great deal on there.

It'll be gone by now. I've never managed to call early enough to get a free one.

I've gotten several things off craigslist for free... and several things that were far from free... I usually have the best luck by telling them that I'll give them $5 if they let me have it... They're making $5 more than they would that way lol

How about the husband doing that? *Sighs* Can't even enjoy looking at CL for the tanks without him looking at me and saying "Um, we don't have room for another tank." My reply is always "We can always make room for another tank."

Yea I have tried that response with my wife before but then she always thinks of something that we could get for our baby that's on the way I mean how do you argue with that. Lol now don't get me wrong I can't wait for the baby but when you find a 45g tank with a fish for free do you know how hard it is to pass that up
