It only cost me $80 and was in amazing condition. It just needed a good cleaning. which I did and then my friend dropped it while helping me carry in from outside after it had dried.

GAH! I have been looking on craigslist for the last 2 days and I haven't seen any under $150...

Yes I topped off with freshwater after it was all up. Salinity was quite high before that. Found an asterina starfish on the glass, first of many I read.
