Dear Craigslist, For once, I love you!

Just picked this up for free... 4 HOURS after it was posted... I didn't think it was gonna be there, but worth a shot to go see :D What was even better is that I fit all of it in my 97 Ford Taurus :p
So, since you are all probably wondering what it was that I got, here it is! (below is a copy of the add, sorry about the head tilt on the pic)


The ad:
FREE 55 gallon fish tank, the black two cabinet stand, filter, heater, decor, food, test kit, 5 gallon bucket. vaccumm to clean it etc. Works no leaks. Outside at Capital City Apartments - at the dumpster on Ruddell Side. Didn't feel like dealing with selling it. Grab it today or tomorrow or I am putting it in the dumpster Sunday eve for the garbage pickup. The tank itself will need to be cleaned out from the algae and remaining water (about 2 inches)


Yup, lets just say I'm pretty happy :)

Holy crap! I'm full of jealousy right now. I thought I got a good deal on an EMPTY 55 gallon for $35. Stuff like that never pops up on my craigslist (which I check like three times a day LOL).

I've seen a 75 gallon saltwater set up with everything free, you just had to tear it down and move it out the house on your own. If I could afford saltwater I would have jumped right on it. XD

That's an awesome find though! Congrats!

Shoot... I would have taken it, sold the saltwater equipment and turned it back into a freshwater tank. I'm not big on saltwater tanks, pretty to look at but I don't want to upkeep one.
