Picked up a tank from a garage sale ad in Craigslist. It just said "aquarium" in the list of stuff.

I show up and it's an oak colored 29 All Glass with matching stand, glass lid, light, about five air pumps, a nice old Marineland 170 that still works and a bunch of other stuff that's headed for the garbage.

$25 for all. It's filthy, but nothing a little cleaner can't fix and make look good as new.

I got a deal today actually 10 gal, 30 gal, 55 gal with hood, filter, and stand for all except the 10 gal did not come with a stand for $100 and everything is running good on it so I don't think that was a bad deal at all.

I'm not an expert, but $500 seems like a huge steal!
