Nice find, you can probably sell off some of that stuff you don't use and get back some of what you spent.

yeah on the local cichlid club forum I put up a 55g sump(drilled 2" on side plate) and a burned out AO SMITH pump, first come first served, first call and dedicated taker came and got it, bummed about 20 or so people out but dibs is dibs.

Im using a twin t-12 shop light 48" now for this tank, growth is thick and full but not much vertical growth plus its stained water so that cuts it even further, I had stand PCF's 100wx2 but the arms broke so im back to the 80w sucky light.


if not home depot has a t-5 6 bulb that will work too for 70 bucks but keep me in mind, ill tear down whatever I got on the tank to put that on it.

I am going now to a few curb alerts of tanks in my area.
