50g aquarium for $40...and not for me??

Okay, so hubby and I agreed that he is getting a lizard of some kind. We haven't decided what type/size etc. until we do some more research. However, he had started building a habitat for one, and was so excited..until I did some more research today and realized what he was building would not work. So, being the good wife that I am I started looking at craigslist..and what do I find?? A 50g, (it might be larger, the lady says), aquarium for only $40! Sigh..yeah, I called hubby and told him about the no go on his build, but quickly told him I already found a solution for him...I can't believe what a deal this is, and it's not going to be for fish lol! Sometimes I am too kind for my own good ha ha..no, really, I'm happy I found it for him!

Oh cool! A great deal!

The only cure for ignorance is education, and bullying or attacking someone is no way to educate them.

Yeah, it really is..we are picking it up Saturday. This will give hubby a great start. He's been working so much lately that the build would have taken a long time anyway. This way he will be able to have his new friend sooner.

50 gallons would be a great gecko tank. is it a long or a tall? if it's tall that's even better, geckos (and a lot of other lizards) love vertical climbing room.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

Yeah, we were originally going to build a tall one...but, the materials we started with were not good. So, I'm hoping he will go for more of a "ground" lizard..we'll see.

I still can't believe it either...it belonged to the ladies mother, and I don't think it's ever even had fish in it..her mom just used it with decorations in it! She was funny cause she said it may even be 75g, she's not sure lol! Either way, no matter how we end up using it..it is a steal! She said she just wants it out of the house lol.
