So naturally, I FREAKED OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OMG!!!!!!! Those tanks are DIRT CHEAP!!! Sure, you might say, “Oh, you have to spend like $20-$70 to get it that cheap.” But guys!!! That’s $20-$70 worth of stuff you get to keep and use AND get a dirt cheap tank!!!!!!
It’s more like “If you support our small business, we’ll let you get a tank for NOTHING!!”
I’m trying to convince my parents we NEED to get like a 50 gal or 70 gal tank. I think they understand what a bargin this is, but they keep throwing in stupid excuses. “Where are we going to put it?” My dad is getting rid of his old car THIS WEEKEND that has been taking up half of the garage for over 16 years. I think we’ll have room. “We really shouldn’t do anything to Ian’s room/aquarium until he leaves for college.” I get that. But we can BUY the dirt cheap aquarium and some heaters and filters and such and STORE it in the garage until he’s gone this fall.
I REALLY want to take advantage of this deal, because I REALLY want to get into big aquariums with exotic fish that I just can’t put in our soon-to-be-empty 30 gallon tank or my Oscar-dictated 46 gallon tank.
