Craigslist Insanity

I was browsing Craigslist for deals on fish stuff and stumbled across someone trying to sell their 3 gallon "glofish aquarium" for $175, and I just had to share this little bit of insanity. I mean most of the posts are a bit insane on their asking prices, but this takes the cake. That is more than $50 a gallon for a tiny little death trap of a tank. Some people...

Yep it's nuts. Or how about this one( we have all seen something like this.) I have a cracked tank that can't hold water. Would be good for mice, snakes, lizards or turtles. Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't turtles aquatic? Which means they need WATER! If the crack is towards the top of the tank, it might work. Most people don't know the difference between turtles/torts. I also seen an ad where someone wanted to trade a fish tank ( no size given) for a case of coors light beer!

My favorite is the guy trying to sell a reef tank. It's been set up 2months, "I have over $2k invested" Then it comes down to the Liverstock list and equipment. And it's a 20g with HOB filter 10lbs LR a clown and a cleaner shrimp.... Some cheap leathers & colt coral...

But they'll let it go for $1k......



I flag posts that are outrages or send a "your an idiot" email.com

It's not on Craigslist, but a local classified website:
Everything you need for a betta or gold fish! $100
Basically it's a bowl and food with an air line, but no air stone or pump ha!

Lol I hate offers like that or when you can tell they dont know about fish
Someone tried to pass off a big tuber ware looking thing for a "easy maintenance" goldfish tank -.-
This one I wanna buy but I dont have the money
It's a fluval chi they said they bought 3 goldfish for their daughter they died in a week and didn't wanna go through the heartache but it's $60 practically new good deal?

I just saw a person on craigslist selling a 55 gallon for 200 and will include two angel fish "for the great low price of 200 for the both of them!"

If that means $200 for the tank and another $200 for the fish, those angelfish had better be able to operate a siphon, clean their own tank, and do my homework for me.
