Empty 29G: sell it or keep it?

  1. Heather12404 Member Member

    So since I just upgraded my 29G to my new 60G I now have an empty 29G. I don't know if I should sell it or keep it. If I some how convince my husband to let me keep it.....what do you think I should stock it with?

    Keep it! It doesn't have to have fish in it (right now, anyway :;nin2). You never know when you're going to have a fishy emergency and need and extra tank!

    Keep it, IMO.

    It'll work great as an "extra" tank or you can stock it later if you'd like:;toast

    Keep it just in case you have to move someone.
    You'll find that even fish that are supposed to ge along don't always follow the rules. :)

    I had my spare 29 for a year then sold on craigslist. The 55g is my main focus now.

    If you have room for it, I would keep it.

    Keep it. You'll most likely regret it if you give it up!

    I think there is an unwritten law against selling your tanks! I know if you sell it you will wish you hadn’t in just a short bit. Seems like every time I upgrade a tank and think I have an extra one I end up needing it for something. I personally would keep it for at least a few months.

    All of your posts got me thinking. What if (heaven forbid) my new 60G gets a leak or something and I need to move all of my fish? If I have this empty tank that would be a very good thing. So I think I'll be keeping my 29G for a while. Thank you all for helping me make that decision.

    I love the irony of asking a bunch of people suffering (enjoying) MTS what to do with an empty tank?

    The simple answer is - fill it up so it's not empty. That way you don't have to worry about having an empty tank lying around :;laughing

    Agreed. It can prove useful even if you don't stock it, if your fish in your 60g get sick you can transfer it there for example. Always keep it.
