Thumbs up You always hear about finds like this...

Casually flipping through the ads in the local Facebook garage sale pages for my area and an ad catches my eye. I really only saw the part about 70gallon tank $100, so obviously I looked closer.
I had to play some serious truck-tetris to get it all packed up to being home, even in my big Dodge Ram, but for a mere $100:

2x 10 gallon tanks with dual-tank stand.
2x 30 gallon long tanks with dual-tank stand.
1x 70gallon tank with DUAL 70 gal tubular steel stand(yes, made to hold two 70-gal tanks)
1x square cube aquarium with light, filter, hood, etc.
A plethora of rocks of various types. Well over 100 pounds.
All manner of gravel and sand.
Hoods, canopies, filters, decorations, nets, lights, fish food, chemicals, etc, etc, etc...







Oh..... my...... god.....

Fiancé is not amused...
