I'm with you Frank! I've been looking for weeks and this is the crap I find. Anything nice is WAY over priced. I'm starting to feel I'd rather pay extra for a guarantee

Before I got the 55 I was set on getting something used and im pretty sure it was jack that warned me about cl any way I needed up driving all over the place only to find tanks that weren't even the ones in the pic or way over priced....

Ive just dealt with two horrible Craigslist ads, both awesome deals but zero response type people. One was a nice looking 36g bowfront with stand and everything for $20, Im sure it was gone the instant it went up... so pull the ad and at least say sorry its gone. The other was a free 75g stand that I responded to 40 min after it was up... again ad never pulled and zero response. Sometimes I hate dealing with people!

I got my 125GL AGA & a frame stand on CL for $160.....I spent another 40 bucks re-enforcing the stand w/ 3/4" plywood & fur 2X4's cut to fit.....$220 bucks, not bad....but I went thru HELL getting a guy that would deal.....currentky looking for a 90GL, but for what these jokers want, I could buy brand new. :pinch:

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

If your lucky enough to have a local or semi local fish club check them out. Those guys realize the real value of a used tank.

I have no idea if we have a local fish club, but I'll look into it.

Darth, there is a 90 gal in my area now, but super expensive. Guy was keeping an arowana in it, he found the fish a home but didn't lower the price of the tank. Smuck.

Yeah, you should check out the Philly area ones.....crazy.

It's "schmuck"!!! :laugh:

I did a thread a while ago....CL People are Insane, or something like that....I think we need to start that back up, just for laughs!!! :laugh:


A very fun thing to waste time doing. :laugh: I almost posted some CL ads when i was first scouting for a new tank a little while back.

Craigslist isn't used much down here in Aus... Well, it is, but most of the ads are women (let's say women) trying to sell used underwear.

Gumtree is lots of fun. Got a 6x2 for $100, a 5x18 for $50, a 4x2x2 for $40 (that one is a bit beat up)... it's why my garage is full of fish tanks.

I feel sorry for these guys www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/wyndham-vale/fish/oscar-cichlids-/1055790166
