Free tanks

6 weeks ago I picked up a used 55 gallon tank with a stand, rocks, plants and a magnum 350 canister filter all for free. It still had water and rocks in it so it was a pain to empty. Has some scratches, the magnum cleaned up great.

Sunday I picked up two 40 breeder tanks with a nice stand for free also. From the mother of the guy that gave me the 55 tank above. These tanks were so clean they look like brand new.

Here are photos of the 40 gallon set up:

Not sure yet, tops and lights are pretty costly.

Maybe one tank salt and the other fresh? That would be cool to have both on the same stand!
