that is a nice looking tank for an lfs display tank, looks like it's in great shape too. what are the dimensions on it? it looks like a beast.

can't wait to see what you do with it...

nevermind, just checked the other thread and saw it's a 8x2... great footprint

It was bought recently within the last year....So it is in great shape.Need diffrent light setup but other than that it is good to go.

It will have sand and other than that it will have a tube for the eel and then pretty bare other than little stuff more than likely.

I didn't buy the tank-it's just being stored here for awhile...Some things happened locally and it has no where else to go....

I have big samoans to help move the tank---it will be a breeze.....

On another note..

Things are not pretty right now-But If I can remember to grab my camera before I leave-I will grab a few pics of things as they sit right now.
