aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand my obsessive Craigslist lurking finally paid off!
I hit upon a lady who posted about was cleaning out her old storage unit and wanted to just her old tanks out of there and find someone who would would really put them to good use.
Granted, they are covered in muck and dirt at the moment, they are fairly old, and will probably need some major rehabbing and elbow grease and resealing, I think I caught a good deal:
-1 100 gallon
-1 60 gallon
-2 30 gallon
-1 20 gallon
-1 10 gallon
-1 1 gallon hex
-a couple HUGE vases and decorative gravel/stones
All for a grand total of.......
None have hoods, lighting, or stands, but seriously.....I was so taken aback. I thought I was only getting the 20 and 30 gallon, but she just kept loading up my car! There's no way I'll use them all (at the same time anyway, heh-heh), but my short term plan is to fix up the 10 gallon, DIY some sort of cover/hood/divider, cycle it, move my two guys into it, and then slowly fix up one of the 30 gallons and settle them (and maybe some new boys!) in. Then....who knows?
Sororities, plants, crazy decor designs, tons of room for my little fishies....my mind is spinning with ideas! Anyone wanting to offer advice on fixing up old, disused tanks and for cheap tank covers/stands? I need all the help I can get!
