how do you lose a stand to a 75gal tank?

Really really big garage. I have misplaced stuff in my garage, but nothing that big.

The 2 Petsmarts in my area have some filter (I don't remember for sure but I think it was a Tetratech) on sale for almost half price. The largest was a 500gph one and I think it was around $40 or something. It might be a nationwide petsmart thing so I thought I might mention it.

If you or your boyfriend are handy with tools I would DIY stand for sure, maybe even the lighting. Sorry about the bad news. He for sure should have taken off $100, that's ridiculous. Bait and Switch!!!

this is the email I am sending-

Hi, I purchased the 75gal aquarium from you this past weekend. I was wondering if there is any way you can find the misplaced box of lights for the tank. After looking at the prices of stands, lights, and filters I am not too thrilled about the deal that was made. It is going to cost me $100 for the lighting and close to $200 for a stand. Both of which I technically won on your ebay auction. I never would have bid on the auction if I had known I would spend $75 (plus $40 for gas) for just the tank. I bidded in confidence that I was purchasing a tank, stand, lights and filter. Why were the items not located before the auction was created? Why were the items not located during the two week time span after the auction ended and before I drove to Houston to pick them up? I just feel very ripped off (unintentional or not). If you can find the lights, filter and whatever else I was supposed to win (minus the stand) maybe we can make an arrangement for you to ship them to me. Please get back to me about finding the lights.

Thank you for your time,
Katy

Nice.. I think you could add a little more venom in there

Did you leave the appropriate feedback for him on ebay?

If you want new filters, bigalsonline has the emperor 400's on sale for $37 (I think), which isn't too bad. I know if the lfs's I have around here they're more than twice the price.

I also have a couple other tanks w/o fish as right now I do not have the room/time and there is a chance of moving in the "near" future so I don't want to get more fish for them. I'm downsizing for the moment.

Boy I really dislike people like him.
You are right he should have had all the stuff together before the action.
How can you advertise something for sale when you dont even have it... ?

I agree on the DIY stand if you or someone you know has the skills.
It's not really that hard.
I just made one for my 180gal and it turned out great.
Good Luck.
