No, it wasn't a Craigslist find. It was a my brother bought a snake from a guy who knew this guy who had a wife that wanted her garage back find.

My mom took a couple of pictures, but they're on her camera. I'll try to get them soon

I'm not sure what I'm going to put in it yet. I'm fascinated by the Amazon biotope tank at the Shedd Aquarium and I've never seen a really big tank set up with little fish before. My wife is just starting to get into aquariums and she doesn't really care for the big fish. An arrowana or a red tail cat crossed my mind, but I'd like to keep my wife happy and interested. Makes justifying my expensive hobbies a heck of a lot easier. Neons might be a little small, but a school of scissortail rasboras might work.

Sweet find, my 10g tank wall (12 tanks total 10 were free) came from the same situation, a friend of a friends wife was raving mad over them being in her house for 10 years empty so his loss was my gain, great score man. Your find perked the wifes ears.

PM me on some DW, ill get pics of my find later when I go rip the rest of the tree out of the ground. Lets just say its a very perfect example of Northern Illinois Manzanita.

I agree that a big fish tank with a bunch of small fish would be cool, the thought is just funny. A 9 foot tank with a neon that gets .5 inches. Thats ALOT of neons.
It is all about the oddballs
