This is what is wrong with our Society

WANTED: 180 to 220 gallon reef aquarium fish tank

This guy has been posting every week for MONTHS. Everyone wants something for nothing, most of the time he says he would like a "donation". I emailed him and told him that if he can't afford an aquarium like the rest of us, then he can't possible afford the upkeep of a tank that large. Isn't it more rewarding to actually EARN something?

Perhaps I am just old school....

I don't think he ever said he wasn't willing to pay good money. If anything it sounds like he's on the right track. He wants a set up with no fish. Most people who don't know our hobby would ask for a set up with fish and wouldn't know how tk take care of them. I'm assuming this isn't his first tank and wants to upgrade. Hence the, ok with rock but no sand or fish. I'd give him a break.

Nevemind I just saw the part where you said he'd like a donation. That's just crazy to ask for.

Lol... I hope he spends a bunch of time posting those. A LOT of people in todays society think they are entitled to something. It makes me laugh. The best you can do is ignore him and raise your children not to act like that. You'll be doing everyone a favor.

I posted a response. I have never done that before, but he keeps posting over and over and it has gotten irritating.

I love those kinds of posts.

I would like a 250 gallon aquarium and stand. It must new and still in a shipping crate. Not in a box because it may get damaged when you ship it to me. The stand must be custom made from English cedar and stained with Thompson's Cherrywood Supreme. I prefer 4 coats of clear but I will accept 3 if you are an experienced carpenter. It must also come with all of the equipment like filters and stuff. I don't know anything about fish tanks so you will also need to do some sort of comprehensive research. This research must be compiled into a single looseleaf notebook and must have color coded tabs. The tabs should be labeled as well because I am color blind, sort of.

Keep in mind that this will be a charitable donation on your part so you will need to be at my house once it arrives to set it all up for me.

I know, when I first saw the title and started reading I figured he was going to be offering atleast a couple grand, then I saw free donation. I don't think he understands the meaning of the word donate, he wants a gift. A very expensive gift from a total stranger.
