Gotta love Craigslist!

I just picked up a 125 galllon 5 year old tank, stand, lights, top, lots of accessories including a nice clean and fill apparatus with 40 feet of hose and a Rena XP3 canister filter, river rock, and several large artifical rock pieces all for $300.00. The tank came from Petco and is 5 years old. It was nasty and stagnant but when I cleaned it up the glass is perfect.
Is that sweet or what?

I just got done talking to some gracious people I found on craigslist. They're selling me their 90 gallon tank, stand, 70+ lbs of LR, corals, fuge with skimmer and pump, heater, circulation fans, coral beauty, mated clowns and 3 assorted fish, and 48" Metal Halide w/ moonlighting for 600. It looks awesome. They're holding it for me until I get back from Texas. I think the lighting itself is worth over 600. Can't wait to pick it up.

Craigslist rocks but u have to be patient. I have been looking for months. The trick is to go to pets then click on all for sale/wanted. Pulls in everything. Sergie that is a great deal! Congrats!

The last time I tried to buy a tank on cg, the guy called me the day I was supposed to pick it up saying he changed his mind. Then, he asked me out on a date. Like I was actually gonna date a guy who broke my heart by keeping the tank I had my heart set on! Lol.

All my tanks are from Craigslist. I primarily look for a tank with a functional hooded light. I'd rather buy my own filter and heater from Amazon or Ebay.

I been looking for a 120+ tank with stand. Price range for that is < $200.

Some guy up here wanted to trade his 120 with stand for an xbox 360. I almost hit him up for that, but after calculating the cost to buy good lighting (the six foot light I wanted wouldve been around 900) extra Live Rock, sump skimmer blah blah blah, it was not worth it. But I definately thought about it!
