Check out the TINY little filters on this tank. Much less the 15 fish. Not to mention Koi.

Yup. Because that's what they bought it for.

Well not necessarily the price but the "that's what I bought it for" mentality!

I can see that. But how bout this.

I buy a 45gal long tank for 60 bucks with undergravel filter plates. Then I take it home and look at it, and find a decent size chunk missing outa the side of it. So then I proceed to re-list it on C-list for 60 bucks as a terrarium. And someong buys it for full price, plus a light I didn't want for an extra 20$. I already had bought a new aquarium and have it set up now.

And I'm selling a couple HOB filters for 8, and 20 bucks each, the undergravel plate for 20 bucks, and a second small set of plates for 10 bucks, I'm making huge profit. Thanx to people who either just wanted things gone NOW, or didn't know what they were selling. All of which I got with the second tank (except the bigger undergravel plates) for 60$.

So I'm peiceing it all for a tone more than I spent. And then there's.my parent's with differing opinions on my selling things for more. My dad thinks I'm ripping people of for selling things for more than I paid, and my mom thinks I'm being smart and "entrepreneural".

I agree, they'd said nothing about a hole in a corner. But I made the best of it and got my money back, plus some since I'm selling the plates and (what is now a) terrarium separately.
