Major craigslist score today

Got a complete 37 gallon tank and stand today for free off craigslist. The guys daughter went off to school and left it. He doesn't want to take care of it anymore so now it's mine. Sweet

Plant it! Go with a 2x24w T5HO and some tall plants... jungle val, crypt spiralis, a big sword, and some cardinal tetras. Granted, that's just my opinion

This is number nine. I'm gonna plant the bejesus out of it and stock it with killifish and CRS. The ten gallon I have set up is not working for me. It's painted on three sides and the only side open is a side not the front so it's tough to see. I know it's way too big but I love a talk planted tank. Maybe I'll move one of my Madagascar lace ferns in there. That would fill up a good portion.

Can you not scrape the paint off the front too? That sounds like a good plan. The height might help the CRS hide a little more too?

It's on so thick I tried and it scratched the he'll out of the glass. I only paid two bucks for the tank so I'll keep it for an emergency in case of a leak.

I wish I could go out and fetch free stuff on craiglist, my girlfriend hates it and would rather buy it for me new. So much for saving money
