Probably a cichlid mix. Not sure I got it up and filters going last night so I have a while till I can add fish to it yet. Lol probably have to wait till next pay day.

Wow. Looks nice. Did it come with a stand. My boyfriend and I want to get a new 55 or larger set up and I found a few decent deals on Craigslist, but he is against buying a tank off Craigslist. He says he's afraid we will end up getting ripped off, like someone selling us a tank with leaking seams, or some other problem we would miss. Yours sure looks nice though. Do you know what you're gonna put in it yet?

I'll probably make it a cichlid tank. But I guess it's just a matter of if you know what to look for. This particular deal was from a couple that was moving. It was up and running with fish in it. So I had to do all the work of bagging fish and homing them as well as draining the tank and cleaning out 4years of hard water build up and fish poop. But. For what I paid Worth it!! Lol. I've seen the same set up for 150-350 bucks.

New tank awesome deal!!

When buying a used tank though I would not recommend paying more then 1$ a gallon. You would be better off buying new. However deals are out there. I browse craigslist for fish stuff daily just to see if I find something I can't live without.

Good advice. I should check craigslist more often for some cheaper driftwood.

Newbiefish34 - I knew about the petco sale, but I thought it was for 40 gallons or less. I will have to check into that. Petsmart had a tank\stand combo for $200.00 that was 60 gallons, so I've been considering that as well.
