Come to the Dark Side, we have cookies.

I used to have a 55 SW (back when I was a younger dragonfish). While I can agree on the beauty, the expense was the problem.

Yeah, we got our 40 from them. Someone had screwed up the combo by adding 2 full 36 inch light strips but no canopy. So we got the tank and 2 strips for $100.00. The stand we found at Petco on clearance for $50.00. Found a glass canopy on craigslist for $10.00 and the fluval we got at our LFS for $100.00 (brand new)

I prefer starting with new tanks just for the fact that if it does leak or something, you can return it. If I craigslist, I want to see the tank up and holding water (just picky that way I guess)

Or better yet, become hobby friends with the managers, it pays off big.

I got the local Psmart manager coming over today to drop off some new unused old powerheads for a few dozen gups. This is his 2nd guppy supply from me and the other manager has all my old serpaes and bloodfins that are approx 4yo and healthy as ox's Infact all my fish come from petsmart, 6 bad fish in 6 years is a **** good record in my book.

cmon, only took me and a buddy to take his curved corner 250 acrylic out of his basement( split level to basement kinda) in the middle of july in northern Illinois(think 80-90 + Louisiana humidity). id take the extra glass weight over having no grip and no chest and arm skin after that move.

the 120 is a 5' long tank right or is it 6'? his 250 was a good 10', needed a box van to move it to the storage it has been sitting in for years now. He wont sell Ive tried.

The guys have to get the stand to our basement, put it together, move our 55g then move the 120 down and after all that, I can start a picture log. (sucks to be the menfolk on this one) lol
