I was over at my dad's rummaging through his PVC fittings and stuff looking for anything I could use for a DIY co2 reactor I want to make and he mentioned going over to a neighbor's house to look at his tank. He's got some issues but had some guy he's known forever giving him advice so I told him if the stuff he was trying wasn't working to get a hold of me and I'd see if I could help him out. He then proceeded to give me, for freeeeeeeeeeeeeee, his old 29 gallon tank. Woot!

I've been wanting to replace my 20 with a 29 forever now. I was even thinking of grabbing one during the buck a gallon sale. Glad I didn't!

That buck a gallon is usually up to like 55 gallons I believe. I don't think it includes the guts.

Congrats on the tank.

YEAH thats great!!! FREE is FREE!

I kick myself now but 6 months BEFORE I started fishkeeping, my neighbor had a 50 gallon hex tank + stand he was going to GIVE me ( his wife just had a baby and no more time, plus his fish slowly started to die off and he never got any more )
He asked a lot of his friends and NO ONE wanted it ( including myself! ) so he gave it to the goodwill.....

so when are you going to replace the 29 with a 55?
hahah! Well...the 20 long, and the spare 20 long will become part of my filter/sump/refugium for my 75 gallon setup. I've been bouncing around between a SW setup, a discus setup or some type of cichlid setup. Right now I'm leaning heavily towards cichild biotope mainly because of the cost of SW and discus!

Congrats! I turned down a (I'll guestimate free or super cheap) Hex tank from my boss. no clue the size or what may have come with it. *shrug* Part of me wants to set it up and plant it and toss some shrimp or a betta in there for her I think I like aquascaping...
