Just found a guy selling a 55 gallon. Two 75 gallons and 90, all up and operational. With fish, plastic plants, substrate and everything that you need. Each tank is one hundred dollars. I was going to upgrade my 30 to a 75/90. I think this is my chance! Now to convince the parents. Any tips?

If its home made. Try to bring the price down and reseal it. If it was manufactured. Grab that before I do.

Let's have one about good stuff you bought and sweet deals you found either Craigslist or local, garage sales, ebay, etc.

I went this week and picked up a 29, top (Stow A Lite oldy) , iron old fashioned stand, and box of "misc" from a local seller. $15

I didn't look in the box, but it was full of stuff, figured it has to have something I could use. She promised the tank was just fine. It was clean, and she claims to have used it within a few years.

Got the 29 home and filled it up on the deck to test. Six inches of water and it leaked like a sieve. Every single corner leaked. Fast leaks. Bummer. That found a new home today with a friend that keeps reptiles. Will work great for that.

The stand is great. Rock solid, just dirty and in need of TLC. I'm going to prime and paint it gloss back. Fits tanks top and bottom, worth the $15 alone.

Open the big box and this is where I got happy.

New in box UG filter, meh, not for me, but I can sell it.

Three powerheads, two DOA, one 550 model works great, that can be used somewhere.

Supra 3 air pump, dual outlet. Old school white pyramid shape. Hooked up some lines, plugged in and WOW, it's as strong as brand new and quiet. Win!

Marineland Penguin 110 h.o.b. filter with numerous brand new cartridges. Filled with water, hung on wash basin, works perfect and doesn't rattle. Another win. Small tank filter or bio only for supplemental on bigger tank.

Get to bottom of the box, what's this? Brand new in box with manuals, submersible heaters and tank shelves! Plural!

I've been looking for tank shelves forever and can't find any at good prices. Here I have a bunch of them, new! Woohoo! Now I'm jazzed.

Under those, Supreme Heetmaster submersible heaters, 200 watts. All new in the boxes, manuals, everything. Untouched. Yeah, I know, some say no way, but I'll test them each for a week in the wash basin. They'll be perfect for tanks with smaller fish that can't break them.

Between what I'll sell a few shelves for and some heaters, I'll end up making some money and getting stuff I can use. Makes up for being bummed over the leaky tank for sure.

Check it out, one of each for sample:

So, what have you found?
I can't find any of those pump shelves, do you want to sell any?
