I just picked up a 58 gallon tank with stand and lights for $75, plus I got a heater, filter, air pump, and a magfloat for another $7. So not all the insanity is bad insanity!

Holy cow! Talk about overstocked and insane...

"I have a whole fresh water set up for sale including the fish. I am willing to sell the items as a bundle for $450, just the fish for $200, or just the fish and the tank(and filter ect) for $400. See the video of the fish posted below.

1. 75 Gallon fish tank
-approx 3 years old. No scratches or leaks
-includes backround, gravel, heater, air pump, sponge filter, glass tops, and Emperor 400 filter


(1) Motoro stingray approx 9 inches in diameter (female I believe)
(1) teacup Stingray approx 5 inches in diameter (female I believe)
(1) large Frontosa
(1) White Calvus
(1) Yellow Peacock
(1) Gold Nugget Plecostomus
The tropheus in the video is no longer in this tank

3. The current stand is a very strong solid wood chemistry table

I have had this set up in Rochester for about a year, and the fish are doing great, but unfortunately I see myself moving a few times in the next few years and am looking for something a little smaller. The motoro stingray does have a dark scar seen in the video from an infection that occurred in the pet store, but it is only a scar and she is in perfect health.

Please Email me or Contact me though my cell phone (---)--- ---- I work during the day so a texting and Email would be the most convenient means of communication, or you could call me in the evening. I will gladly consider legitimate offers, and will consider trades for a smaller saltwater set-up. "

I saw this listing for a 10 gallon tank (I think) on craigslist:

"All yours for 70 bucks. The stand alone cost us $85 4 months ago. It is the tank, stand, filter, water conditioner, hood, and food."

OK, a massively overpriced tank. So what. But it gets better.

"It is way overdue for a water change."

Really? The water is BRIGHT YELLOW, the tank is only half full because of evaporation and you think the water needs CHANGING!?!?!

"The fish in it are 3 fantail goldfish, 2 feeder fish, and a crab."

Hmmm.....In a 10 gallon......

"If you don't want the fish, they will have to be transferred to my tiny tank."

So you'll have 3 goldfish in a smaller tank than the one they already are in???


My jaw dropped in disbelief when I saw this ad. It's horrific.

Here's the link if you absolutely have to see it:
