I've been picking up tanks for the last two weeks and I've done real well ! I got two Aga tanks , a 75 and a 90 for 80 bucks . A 55 g with stand ,hoods and lights for 20 bucks . And last but not least a Aga 240g with a 55g sump for 280 bucks ! The 240g is 8'x2'x2' which is perfect , I can make a rack and put my 7' 210 underneath ! I am up to 1672 gallon's of tanks without the new 240 in my bedroom !
I Took down the 120L and put the new 75 on top and the 90 on the bottom .
Image
Then I built a new rack and put my 100g from up stairs and a 40 breeder on the top . Then I put the 120L on the bottom then and linked them with two overflow boxes to one sump .
Image
Here are the 55g tank and sump .
Image
And here's the 240 !

Nice! That 240g looks glass? I know my acrylic 240g took 2 people to move! You will love the shape and size of it! Mine is the same dimensions and I love it!

I seem to only find deals like that after I have used up my 'fish allowance' :lol:
Those look like well built racks! Did you give them a heavy 2 coats of urethane?
