50, 55 gal aquariums in at Pet Stuff Resale

It was quite an adventure buying these! They were about 55 miles away and my next appointment was 50 miles back the way I came, so when the garage door opened and
they were still stacked up on the wall, I groaned inside. The seller had also loaned out his
ladder, so he had to straddle a cooler on top of a tool box to unload heavy aquariums
packed in wood!!!!

I didn't have time to open them completely, but opened enough to check for cracks in moving from Colorado and they were fine.

The real adventure was unpacking them -the moving company did a terrific job of securing them.

My next door neighbor provided a pry bar and with a couple of other tools I finally got them unpacked and I learned some new skills in the process.

The seller was also very nice, especially after he said how much he likes Texas!

These are the kind of things I like to do to help my clients save money and it keeps my job fun as well.

The 50 gallon is a tank and stand; a flat back hex, for 80.00

The 55 gallon tank and stand has lights, also 80.00
