Have you ever given away an aquarium?
Yes, If it was empty
ever use a 20 gal as a display case
Nope , Ive even used a 20 gal as a diplay case on end and a lamp stand at the same time.
pretty neat looking till you figure out its a tank..The light inside looks so cool...
shame :-[ shame
Yep....one of those very small octagon ones for goldfish(1-2 gal maybe) a long time ago, after the one surviving fish was set back free into the local lake(yeah, I know..) I figured it had a better chance of living in that lake, than it did in the home it currently had(son's would clean it and it was grass green for months!)...either it became part of the food chain or had a long wonderful life lol.......
I set the tank and all the equip out by the street and someone came and picked it up. The town we lived in was notorious for dumpster divers..
I have given away complete setups before. One 10 gallon and two 20 gallon setups. They were FW setups though so much cheaper to give away.
Only one give away started the fish bug though. The other two had unhappy endings.
29 gallon freshwater with some beautiful marble angels when I left for college.
Yup. A 20 gallon. Gave it to my brother who had shut down his tank a few years ago and wanted to get back into the hobby but was a little short on $$.
First of all...hello everyone...it's been awhile since I've been around! I gave away a 55 gallon setup before to my boss. Of course he let me purchase a 210 gal. tank and stand for cost...;D
shweeet! nice boss!
I used to be the aquarium dumping ground for friends that didn't want their aquariums anymore. I had about 6 in my garage (you never know when you might need one or a refugium might crack :). When I moved to a smaller house I put them out on the front lawn during our big recycle weekend. I cracked up when a car came by and took 3 of them. Then came back 20 minutes later and took the other 3 ;D
