I found a 55 gal. tank with a stand, filter, hood, lighting, heater, thermometer, net and 2 siphons for $70 , should I get it and risk it having a leak, I replied to the seller and asked him some questions, hopefully I will get a reply soon

I would post a link, but knowing you all, you would have it shipped to you b4 I get a chance to buy it

get it! if it leaks you can fix it later and still have less in it than its worth.

they replied back...they took the tank down about a week ago, and the only problem is that the stand needs some new bolts...I will more than likely be buying this asap ;D

anybody know what the egg in my sig hatched into...it looks like a worm with a darth vader mask

the lady w/ the tank e-mailed me back last night and said that they had someone else call them about it during the day, he is looking at it fri. morning...hopefully he won't buy it!
if he does, my parents are gonna get it > they made me wait until 8 last night to e-mail her back...and all they told me was that I might have to wait a while to get fish..."family meetings" can go to **** >

hahaha I'm really jealous.

So.. does everyone else in your family know how to care for fish?

nah...my sister and dad know how to feed them, but that's the limit on their fish knowledge

I don't trust many people when it comes to my fish

Yeah, I feel like it would be too much to ask to teach them how to test and clean.. etc..

if I get this tank, what should I put in it?
I was thinking 4 angels, but don't know what else

i'd look for relatively peaceful fish that get to the same size as the angels.
