OK well I was on masa the aussie reefer board that is now my new haunt. well some one who lives nearish me is selling a 200cm X 70cm X 70cm tank with stand, hood, sump ect. do you know how tempted I am??? a 256 gallon aquarium. I want reef but predator saltwater or large freshwater is just so tempting.

heres a link to it. http://www.masa.asn.au/rtaw/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=trading&Number=141630&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=1

don't you hate being a poor 16 year old fish keeper/reefer

it's sad that the guy is getting out of the hobby... how much does he want for it? (yeah, I'll need to know it in US dollars... Smile )

I doupt he will ship to the US considering he lives near me (victoria, Australia). no idea what he wants for it he says give me an offer. offer what????? lol.

The moment I saw that I though sweet I could join the NFA(native fish australia) this guy I know has a 210g tank in his shop and has a 60cm long female trout cod. when she dumps her eggs they're taken to the HQ and fertilised and raised.

some of the cons would be where in the house could I have the tank without having it fall through the floor! that and I wouldn't have the $$$ to upgrade my salty tank. but I am still tempted!

Ouch. Is there no way you can buy it? really, if the price was good, I wouldnt want to pass it up, even if it means having it sit around for a while. Maybe sell your smaller tanks and upgrade?

Offer to him a buck and go from there. Laughing

lol. my smaller tanks would be worth squat. but I have $680 in my aquarium buget(mor like in my walet) minus the money I need to spend to buy a few test kits for my salty.

the main problem I have is its a huge aquarium!!! its shear weight is going to be scary to move and when its full of water. I am just not sure our house would be able to have that sortof weight distributed in such a small area. anybody know anything about that subject?
