What do you think???

55 Gallon Aquarium with cabinet stand, light, two filters, heater, etc

I talked her down to $100. Yes or no? I'd have to drive an hour to get it. She said no scratches (if I discover any I'll talk her down) and it was last filled in November. Selling because she has no time for it. What do you guys think?

Ewwww... need some black paint!

Looks to be a fluval canister, which is pretty expensive. I'd say for $100 its not a bad deal.

Yeah, I'm lovin' that Fluval. The gray paint is hideous, I'd most likely paint it.

Well, the Jon seal of approval is certainly a reason for me to take the drive!

+1 on the gray color, yuck.
But yes it's worth the money and the drive. It's even worth getting rid of that hideous color, again yuck.
Just consider how much all that stuff would cost if you had to buy it seperately.

Yes. This is exactly what I was thinking. But, make sure you look at it good. Don't take it if there's anything about it you don't like (other than the color of course). You definitely don't want to regret spending that $100.

Will definitely look at it good. What's this particle board nonsense, though? Educate me, please.
