I found a 55 gallon with rena canister filter,stand, heater, cover, all accessories and fish for $125. Real nice set up-except!! I hate ciclids!! Comes with 5 6-7" ciclids, 1 pictus catfish, 1 plecostamus, and some other large bottom dweller. I wanted the 55gallon to put my rainbows in! I will call LFS Tues and see if they will take the fish-if not-back to craigs list I guess. Thing is...the guy doesn't recall the names of the ciclids. One is blue and white, one orange, couple are copper/emerald color. Anyway, I am afraid of them. I am scared to even catch them in the tank! HELP!
Excited for new tank-not these new fish.

Gorgeous tank & great deal! Congratulations!

The Dallas/Fort Worth craigslist is a gold mine... ugh it kills me to go through the listings and see all the great deals, because I live three hours away. There are literally dozens of tanks listed every day! I think I must be a sadist, because I do it anyway. LOL

Craigs list can be such a temptation! I try not to look there if there is no way I can get something. Its just too distracting- then I start dreaming again....MTS for sure! Will be busy getting mine moved today. I will post pics as I will need help identifying the ciclids and bottom dwellers I want to get rid of...ugh! Not expecting to like ciclids-hope they are easy to sell or give away! Owner said they would sell for $25 each at lfs. May be peacocks? Lab? Will post so I can get help! Fun to find on Craigs list tho!

I found one 125 gallon & one 60 plus two jebo canister 829 filters
With two 48" jebo lights
One 72" light
Eight power heads
One wet & filter
90lbs of black gravel
& a bunch of other accessories
All for 200$ the guy was getting out of the hobby
I was the first one to ask him about it
Had to drive 2 hrs away but all worth it

I love Craigslist

Check this out:

"Getting out of the hobbie, need to get rid of my collection of aquariums. I would like to get $600.00 for all of it. Includes at least 9 full system setups. Includes Filters, Heaters, test equipment, decor, hoods, brand new lights, different size stands, pumps, already treated driftwood. Whether your in it for the hobbie or just looking for a deal to turn around and sell this would be one. I have an Eclipse 3, two 55gal with stands, 75gal with stand, 2 ten gall, 30 gal reptile, and much more.I have all receipts. All hold water as well. There's more to this collection just didn't have enough room to fit it all in the pics. All full setups, used for fresh water fish. Thanks for your interest and hope to hear from you."


Amazing!
