To good to pass up? I think so!

So I was reading AA at work and had an overwhelming "feeling" to check out my local Craigslist (probably cause I was reading the insanity thread) and what do I spy? 175 gallon with the works! Not top of the line but not Wally world either! Oh and an oak stand and canopy! What did I pay you ask? 400 delivered and put in the spot I wanted it!!!

http://tippecanoe.craigslist.org/for/3479858575.html

Now I started with a 29 gal a cpl weeks ago and as soon as I got it set up I wanted bigger and the feeling never went away sooo...... thoughts and comments wanted. Did I make a mistake by jumping in with both feet? Did I over look something in my splurge? It won't be up in going till I've cleaned it in every nook and crevice. Oh house is built on a slab so weight is not a concern.

Sorry for the wall of text just excited!

Looks like a great deal to me! You have so many options for stocking. I'm jealous! Hope you have a water changer, cause you're gonna need it for that, lol.

Well good news bad news, after measuring a 100 times 72" x 18" x 23.25" LxWxH umm 125 gal? Im missing 50 gal worth of space me thinks. The decor is good, have to see what I can find out on the HOB filters so far cant find a name. Lights work but i don't trust them maybe after cleaning I will feel better.


After kicking myself for not measuring a 125 setup im just as happy

That's still a good deal in my book. What do you plan on doing with it? The possibilities are endless!

Not bad at all even though it's a 130. The canopy and stand look very nice.

If you could post pics of your filters I bet one of us could tell you what you've got.
