Exclamation $10 for a 20Gal

There's a great tall 20gal-ish tank sitting in one of my local thrift shops for $10! Ten! I have absolutely no use for a 20gal right now, we're not even allowed to have anything more than 10gallons in our dorms... but a deal like this doesn't come along every day.

So should I hold onto my money? Or nab it just in case? It's in great shape too... just dirty, no scratches.

Also, it's been sitting in this thrift shop for about a month. It was $18, and I had a hard time resisting that, but $10 is just too good.

-LL

Get it! 10 bucks is ten bucks. Maybe you can have a tank for your car!

Alright, I'll be back at the thrift store, first thing tomorrow! And my RA doesn't need to know about me having ANOTHER tank. ;P

Alright, scratch what I said about it being a 20gal... It's a 36.5 gal! Guess I'm just bad at eyeballing!

Brought it home and measured it just now.
