one tip you may want to remember... if you dont get a filter with any of your tanks, you may want to consider an aqua-tech 30-60... i run one of those and a canister on my 55's, they are super quiet and do an excellent job, especially considering they are cheap walmart brand... the cartridges are like $10 for 6 of them, which lasts a very long time... ive had mine for 2 months now and only changed the cartridges about a week ago... filtration is where money is well spent...

ok well i know that this is bigger than what i originally wanted but that is a good thing i guess lol..........well anyways i found this on craigslist..55g aquarium w/ stand and Frontosa
i emailed him asking details on the equiptment and fish and things of that nature....im kind of want to choose my own fish eventhough these look amazing and this was his response....I would rather just get rid of it all together fish and all. I dont know how old the frontosa are but they are all between 2"-4" in size. It has a marineland filter, 2 tetra air pumps and I believe that two heaters are tetra brand as well....but anyways tell me waht you think please!
Good deal or bad?

wow, the price is somewhat steep, at least for where im at... i would try and talk them down a little, but you still couldnt get all that stuff new for $200... what size filter is it? if you have the money, go for it... i started with a 55, it wont be long before youre thinking about a 125... i do like that stand its on, i will totally envy you if you get it

sorry, i couldnt help myself... i love browsing craigslist... saw this one while i was there... REDUCED 75 Gallon Fish Tank Aquarium and Stand seems like a better deal to me, if you have the extra $100 and wanna take the plunge
