I been waiting for several months now for a cheap 55gal tank to pop up on ebay or craigs list, but i haven't really found anything close by, or nothing cheap enough to drive to get it. But finally thanks to a nice mistake from Petco, i got it for $100. I never really looked at those aquarium kits, but i saw they had one on sale for $150, normally $200, so when i dropped in to check it out, they had ir marked $100. Big mistake but the manager had to give it to me, it was advertised!
The tank came with hood&lights, a Second Nature Whisper Triad filter and heater. I will deff. use the heater, the filter to fill it with LR
rubble and run stuff like purigen.
And to keep the luck going i got a nice black stand, with doors and all, on sale( 50% off).
And even more luck, im sick of my penguin powerheads locking up, so i got 2 Hydor Koralia 3 Aquarium Water Circulation Pumps for $15 each 8O , used on craigs list. tested them today, and they work fine.
So the switch from 29gal to 55gal will happen soon, but only after the holidays
Ps: oh yeah, i will have lots of questions
