E-Bay Bargain

Just picked up a Fluval Roma 90L, with matching cabinet, filter, heater, some decor, gravel, food, water conditioner. All in really good condition. Just needs a new light bulb. All for £45.

Ideal

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Thanks. Over here that setup is £220, so I'm pretty happy with my bargain. Gonna do another FW tank. I've got a very understanding partner as I also ordered another new 240L tank today. Feel a bit guilty

I have 9 tanks right now so my b/f is very understanding to say the least. iplan on selling off 3 of them though so maybe he's looking for the light at the end of the tunnel. hehe....

there never is an end, I will always find a great deal that i can't pass up. Just have to make more room

I thought 3 was gonna be my limit but I just can't stop. I suffer an acute case of MTS. (multiple tank syndrome). This website is just an enabler in my opinion. LOL

Fish keeping should carry a health warning really, and it's not good for you wallet either!

Sadly my lighting unit on my E-Bay bargain was completely shot, not just a bulb or two as I was led to believe

New unit bought & a little DIY to get it to fit over the rim & things are starting to come together.
