New tank???

So I was working in somebody's house yesterday and we started talking about saltwater tanks. He asked me if I wanted a 300 gallon tank with an oak stand??? Holy crap!! 8 feet long, 3 feet high, 2 feet deep. What is everyone's thoughts?

300G is pretty darn huge. You're going to need some serious equipment for that tank lol. Setting up a tank this big definitely won't cost you any less than $1500. I set up a 55G for 750$ and i got some things pretty cheap off ebay.. so you can imagine what it's going to take lol. But still, getting the 300G for free would save you a bundle.

That got some good responses! I am taking the tank. I am just going to store it for now. I have no place for it at my house. At some point when I move, I will set it up in the basement. I will start saving for it now. I know this will cost some seroius coin to get it going.

it wont cost much at all if you want to set it up with gold fish, but if you're going sw then yeah it will be quite a chunk of moolah.
