Talking <<<< Can you believe this??? >>>>

So today i got a call from some random number so i listened to the Voicemail. come to find out i forgot that i put an ad on my local classified web site with an ad for anyone to give me a call if they had and extra aquarium supplies. anyway so i listened to the Voicemail and it was a gentleman that had a 75 gal tank and was wondering if i was interested. so i called him back up and said "sure how much?" he told me if i came and got it he would give it to me so after 20min of convincing my wife into letting me have it i told him sure i'll take it not a problem. well I know what your thinking Heck a free 75gal tank thats great. But wait there is more when i got there he not only gave me a tank but a sump, light, glass cover, a powerhead, and so much more... I havent had the chance to go check everything out yet, I had to go to work today but, heck for free who could ask for more?

now the Hard part trying to figure out what i should do with it.....

Right now i have a 29gal with Female guppies and some barbs, a 10 gal with male guppies and bronze cory cats and a 10gal with guppy fry ( i had a couple of males in with the females accidently on purpose )

so now i'm not sure if i should keep with freshwater and just load it up or should i go salt with this one? the possibilities....
Let me know what you think and what should i put in there.

its going to be awhile scene there was one down side to this whole thing ( 2 in fact) 1) there is no stand so i would have to build one. and 2) there might be a small leak, when he had it set up one of his corals fell and nicked the seal. he said he fixed it but to fill test it first. so i have a feeling that its going to be about a moth before i can put water in it ( i have to clean the calcium off the glass and so on. you know how it is....)


So let me know what you all think.

make it a loach tank. one group of polka dot loaches ( burmese border loaches, angiculis botia) and one group of yoyo loaches. then put a school of tiger barbs. use real plants and driftwod too. thats what i would do. dont use clown loaches because a group would be way too big. they will bring you endless enjoyment.

nice find....well not really a find that you found but it did find you.....not sure if that makes sense lol

I say you do a nice overly large semi planted community tank with huge schools of tetras, and a few leopold angels, and some otos
