Came across this today.
700 obo wife says it has to go today! 8 Feet long, 3 feet deep, 2 ft tal. Twin overflows. Comes with 125G sump and plumming parts. The maker of the tank is midwestcustom.com For this tank new costs about 2700. I do have most of the parts for the stand. Phone me up if you would like to come check it out.
We have a 55g and a 30g FW
, and we're in the process of setting up a 75g SW
with a 30g sump. We really want a big tank for our dining room. It could be seen on both sides from the living room and dining room. The dining room is on a slab foundation, ceramic tile floor and I don't think there's a subfloor. We're pretty handy and plan to build our own stand. We really want something an arowana would be happy in.
I'm worried that it's acrylic, but from what I've read, if you're not afraid of sticking your arm in there to wipe off the scratches, it will be fine.
We're going to see it tomorrow and plan to bring $500 in cash and see how far we get.
So, my question- are we crazy?
What do we need to look for?
What should we ask the guy?
Should we have him put water in it so we can see that it's seaworthy? I'm thinking so.
Is this as amazing of a deal as I think it is?
How can we protect it on the way home?
Thanks for any advice you can share!
