    Oh no. I think I have officially caught MTS. First I innocently set up a shrimp tank, and then put a betta in it. Now, MTS has taken complete control, I convinced myself I need to get a 55 gallon. Not sure how I caught MTS, but either way, it's a terrible case, I just set up my betta's tank less than a month ago. As for stocking, I really want a pair of convict cichlids or some other sort of cichlid. If I go through with this plan, I am looking forward to starting this project, however, my wallet isn't... Oh well. :p

    lol

    Ya, we never do really know where we get that...lol

    I'm afraid I'll be getting it soon, due to my newest rescue Blue Gem, and my eager search for another tank, But I have a mom to help me with it...lol

    See, I just don't understand, I was laying in bed half asleep and all of a sudden I'm thinking, "I need I new, bigger tank" it was really strange.

    I know what you mean if I could fit it and have the ability to do so I would fit a nice big tank somewhere. Alas not going to happen why I still crash with my rents maybe ots a good thing though

    I know what you mean... I started with 1 10gal and 1 week later got another one. I also rescued my friends betta, saved one from the LPS and then got 2 fry grow out tanks for my guppies. Now I want a 55 gal too. My parents now think I am crazy.

    That's my life story. I could get a new tank today and then want another one tomorrow. So far I've managed to hold off and only have three but I'm no good at self control. ;)

    Awesome find. Do it! Do it!

    Lol I bought a 125 today and a 75 a couple months ago. Already had a 29 and x2 10's. Dangerous isn't it?!

    Wow, that's a lot of tanks that you have. And it's very dangerous, my LFS always takes old big tanks off people's hands, fixes them up and then re-sells them, but they're usually above 75 gallons, but I always go in there and think, "I wonder if I could manage..."

    Unfortunately I'm out of town until tonight, hopefully that tank on Craigslist is still available then...

    This thing is really scratched up, but the seals are in good condition, so I'm happy. Looking forward to setting it up!!! :D

    Yay! I love a good deal.

    Wow! No wonder it is scratched up, I just found the manufacturing date, March 2 1987! It must have been re-sealed, the seals seem brand new.

    I have a small betta tank and have a 26gal tank to set up. I'm dreaming about even more fish tanks. Literally. And Sir Bob should have even more room. Hmm.
