A fellow USF student who forecloses houses was kind of enough donate a 120 gallon aquarium from one of his foreclosed house to our club this past Friday for us to sell as a means of a fundraiser for our club. Today, Nicholas and I sold the aquarium through CL and made $100 for our club!! Thank you Mr. Shinall for your generous donation to our club! And, thank you Nicholas for your help acquiring and selling the aquarium! cheers

First, good job on the fundraising Smile








Second, it is just me, or does $100 seem a little low for 120g? Was it just the tank?

It was a tank and stand, but it leaked, had no lighting, filter, or other equipment, and the stand was a little beat up. Plus, the previous owner had gone crazy drilling holes in it. It had two holes for overflows, one for a return, and three more that I have no idea what they were for. We wanted $150 for it, but took $100.

Oh, and the back and bottom of the aquarium were plywood with some kind of sealant over it...
