Is this 240 a good deal?

I am buying this tank from craigslist. You can see that it was advertised for $1500, but I am getting it for $800 with everything included. What do you think?

HUGE Fish Tank

I am pretty excited about it, my wife on the other hand, not so much. I already have a 28G, 115G and a 140G.

I think that's an awesome deal. Good luck moving it. I'd suggest 6 guys (one on each corner and two in the middle).

I am thinking of hiring a moving company to move it, depending on the price. I am an eheim and Rena filter guy. Am curious to check out the FX5.

Personally, I would go with a half-dozen friends who will accept pizza as payment (my typical fee for helping people move). Or do you need to rent a truck to move it?

Was I the only one who briefly wondered what a 'plycho' was?

A while back, someone in my department was moving and hoping to get rid of her 10gal tank and the two fish, posting a picture but saying nothing about the fish. I emailed her that I could take the fish so she could at least break the tank down (which I think scared her) and said that the pleco would be good for my tank. When I picked the fish up, she informed me with much authority that it wasn't a pleco, it was a 'sucker fish'. It was harder than usual to keep my mouth shut!

Regardless, congrats on the deal!

I think the most important question here is what are you doing with it? I know you're an african guy, but have you thought of branching out in to the green world?

Oh, and a plyco is a crazy pleco btw
