I bought my full 55 gallon setup for $180. Came with perfect tank and stand HOB filter air pump and full hoods and full spectrum lights plus a bunch of accessories. The seller also have me over 15 rocks and plants worth nearly $200 alone!

I do the same thing. And don't have any luck either. I live in kin of a small town and the people that do put stuff on Craigslist here are crazy in thinking what their tanks are worth. Still check daily though.

This is where negotiating skills come in handy. How many times have you, or your buddies wife said, " But honey....look at all the money I saved!"

Now, granted, she spent money and didn't save a thing, but you use this to your advantage when you tell her " Do you know how much money I saved doing it this way?"

Turn about is fair play

The headline on this thing said $1. I just about passed out.

I'm not a fan of the tank at all, but WOW regardless. It's huge. And it looks like he's using a pool filter a floor below.

I'm pretty sure it means best offer. Looks nice. For the footprint of that I would rather have a 55 or 75 for the price

125g tank, stand, hood, 6' light(2bulbs,), 3... AC110's, 2 300w heaters.

All for 200$.

I felt bad for the guy selling, but was a man who was going through a divorce, and apparently it was his wife's hobby. He said a few choice words about her and how he wanted this out of his house before she could take it.

Well... I'll take it off your hands! Tomorrow? Yuuuuup, I'll be there to pick it up! Haha.

Check the pics, they braced the floor under it nicely.

Those metal adjustable jack posts cost about $35 bucks, plus some 4x4s. Cheap insurance to brace it instead of finding out the floor sags later.

Always smart with a big tank.
