I'm not sure if this topic has been brought up but in the past I've read about people curious on ways to find cheap tanks/supplies. I don't know how new this is since I just recently joined my "area's" buy/sell group on facebook, but I have found some really awesome deals on old fish tanks and supplies ranging from 1gal-50gal tanks prices as low as $5. It's like craigslist but feels a little more personal since you can see actually introduce yourself to the people you'd be purchasing/selling to. Just an idea to check out to those looking for great deals on fish items. Just search "buy sell" on your facebook see if there's one in your area.
