That's a deal. Seems this particular one is a Perfecto.
had a promotion where he'd take any tank as trade in towards the purchase of a new one.
Some examples of trade-in w/o or w/ hood was
$3 for 5.5 gallon
$10 for 7 gallon bowfront w/hood
$5 for 10 gallon $5 for hood
$15 for 10 gallon hex w/hood
$15 for 20 gallon high or long $10-15 for hood
$20 for a 25 gallon $10 for hood
$25 for a 29 gallon $15 for hood
and so on
Spring clean up in my town was mid-April until mid May, 4 Mondays, 4 wards. He told me a kid traded in over $200 worth of perfectly good tanks he picked up curbside with a wheelbarrow. Mostly 10's but tanks all of these sizes he found. Amazing how much we throw away.
The kid got himself a 55 gallon, cover, light and iron stand with no cash involved, for about 20 hours work. How many other kids addicted to video games would do this?
