Hello.

What do you guys think about this deal?



It says 70 gallon, but I'm wondering if it's actually a 75 just from the picture.

Sounds like a great deal. I'm just wondering why they would get rid of it so cheap. The only downside is you're buying it unseen, unless you live near them and can look at it first I would also do a leak test before you buy it if you are in the area. Just because the pictures look ok doesn't mean that it is still fine.

I live roughly an hour away. It is pretty cheap compared to most deals on Craigslist, but then most of them are WAY overpriced.

Just try your best to cover your bases. If they refuse to let you inspect it before you buy it I would walk.

Wow if this was anywhere near me, I'd be trying to shove it into my 2 door civic right this second.

Looks like a 75g. "Comes with accessories". As long as the kid isn't included, sounds like a deal. Go for it!

I may text them in the morning. I might upset the significant other, but even she said it looks like a good deal. Lol.

Good deal, check the seals, even at 75$ the resealing wouldn't be an expensive project.

I thought that too. I've never resealed a tank before, but everyone says it's easy.

There are several Youtube videos to follow along, you just need the time for cure and time to get everything done (normally a half day of work to make sure it is all good, then a couple days of waiting for a cure).
