I have the opportunity to buy a used 12 gallon eclipse tank... it is 3 years old - only used for 2 years and sitting for one. It comes with everything - gravel, decorations, heater, and even the Marineland stand for it, all for $50! Now, my question is, does anyone have an old Eclipse? How well do they age? if I purchased this, how many years could I reasonable expect from it? The guy says that it worked the last time he used it (a year ago). He is only getting rid of it because he doesn't have time for fish anymore with 2 year old twins!
What do you guys think?
... and of course, this all depends on hubby-approval :) I think it would be a good "just in case" tank to have around for that price.
