  • Think it's a good deal?

    I saw this on CL and thought it would be good for one of my pairs of angels. I think it's a pretty good price. And surprisingly, my husband is actually going for it. Do you guys think a 32G will be sufficient for a pair of angels?

    Edit: was just cruising CL some more and found this one http://binghamton.craigslist.org/for/3682012992.html. It's a 50 gallon for the same price and I think I can get it cheaper.

    The first one is better looking but the second one is a better deal, I think.

    The first definitely looks great IMO, but I would go for the second one. It has more wiggle room for the Angels and you always use it as a grow out tank as well.

      I don't really know which one to recommend getting, but I will say that I think the bowfront is a 36g. I have the same one and the stand for it looks exactly the same and mines a 36g.

            I heard back from the guy with the bowfront and we are going to see that Sunday morning. The tank will be going in the dining room and will look much better than the other. But I also sent an email to the person with the other tank, so if this falls through we will see about that one. Or if my dear husband is feeling really generous.........

                  I think the poor man has resigned himself to the fact that he just can't fight it anymore . And Sean - how did you know saltwater was the next on the list?

                      Well, he wants to go visit his brother tomorrow and then go to the casino for a bit. Maybe we'll get lucky and hit it big. Then the sky's the limit. On second thought - maybe I better make sure the fish tank money is tucked away before we go.

                          I'd go for the second one personally. I don't like bowfronts.
                          Cool fish in the second one too! I love goldies lol.

                            I haven't heard back yet from the guy with the second tank, so I'm not holding my breath. I would rather have the bigger tank, but then hubby would have to make a stand for it because even if the one it's sitting on comes with it, it's not going to cut it in the dining room. And I like my tanks to sit up a little higher. I don't know why because I'm not even 5'2 and have to climb on a stepladder any time I want to do anything in the other big tanks.

                              see you want a bigger tank because in saltwater bigger tanks make it easier to fix smaller issues that would destroy a smaller tank
