WOOT! New (to me) fish tank. Biggest I've personally owned. [May. 31st, 2008|12:22 am]

I love Craigslist. I was keeping an eye on it for a cheap 55 gallon, as I have a pair of juvenile African Brown Knife fish in my 29, but that will shortly be too small for them. Had seen one before I had available cash, but not since. Then last weekend, an ad showed up for a 45 gallon long. Came with cover, light, heater, 2 HOB filters and about 60-70 pounds of gravel...for fifty bucks. If not exactly what I had been looking for, it's big enough, and I couldn't beat the price, so it now resides in my computer/fish room. WOOT!
Unfortunately, on the drive home, I heard a "tink!" Fortunately, it wasn't the tank, but the heater did not survive the trip home. Grr... Only a little "grr" though, overall I'm still extremely pleased.

Too bad your bengals don't appear to like them, my yoyo goes bats whenever he finds one, isn't happy until he's ripped it out of its shell and eaten it.

Oh bugger. I accidentally deleted Gizzard's comment. I was just trying to remove the message about it. Grr!

Damn fine deal, there! One of the LFSs hereabouts regularly has aquarium sales where their 55-gallons go for $50 or less, but bare. I can never manage to time the sales with car availability, though. :(

I feel your pain, was carless for 4 years. I also missed a 90 with a stand for $100, would've needed a small pickup at least. And a funeral as the wife would've shot me since I'd already gotten the 45...
