Craigslist might have made me broke again haha.

Well I found a oceanic 58G tank that the guy got tired of and is selling it, the stand and hood for $50 bucks.

OCEANIC 58 GAL AQUARIUM, STAND, LIGHT MUST SELL SAT AUG 21ST!


What do you guys think?

Looks pretty good. A bit dirty, but nothing a little vinegar and water cant take care of. I would suggest meeting up and taking a look at the tank before even considering it. If its in good condition, and you see that all it needs is cleaning and some TLC, then i would say pick it up for sure.

I would agree. Even the live sand that you see at pet stores, i wouldn't even consider live. Its been sitting on the shelves for so long, that you don't really know how much is dead. Probably all of it anyways. I would just ditch the live sand and go for dry aragonite sand. In due time, the sand will become live on its own.

It helps when you can make the hobby pay for itself.

the key is buying all these nasty looking dirty tanks for $10-20, clean them up, set them up, post them for sale, and sell them for $100 or more worked for me!
