Lobster tank FOR CHEAP!!

Right now there is a Lobster tank, complete with sump, chiller, THICK tank, pumps, stand, ect...
It came from a Red Lobster (You know where you get to pick out your own fresh one in the lobby)

It's over at Aqualife right now and they are only ASKING $100.00 for THE ENTIRE SETUP!!

Now if you wanted to setup a cold water reef, so you could get cool stuff from the Cali coast and have it, This is your time!!!
The glass is super thick so it won't condense water on the outside when the tank is like 55 degs..

My wife would KILL me at this point if I bought it, but the massive chiller in there alone is worth WAY more than that!!!!

I would guess on the tank size to be about 150-200Gs But that's a total guess, I don't have the size specs..

That is an awesome price. There was a similar tank listed on CL last summer for $800. That is a very good price.

I just called em... I call dibs!

I have been looking to set up a pacific tank - all that diving and nowhere to host some new friends from the West coast.

Thanks for the heads up Steve!

Talked to Kyle - its got some minor issues, and they are not certain the owner is going to sell sell it - but am on top of the list.

I figure I would run a Pacific tank in the winter, and eat the inhabitants in the summer and covert it over to a tropical reef until winter.

FYI for all of you who were thinking about setting up a local tank, it is against the law to move a fin fish in the live condition from where it was caught or collected to ANY other place. The law came about for a couple of reasons most notably the introduction and spred of pikes and snakeheads in fresh water, but when fishing the officers check and it is a big fine as well as losing any and all equipment used to transport the fish, this includes live bait. You can look it up on the fish and game laws website, see section 1.63 and its supplements, 4.00 to 4.30 and 230, but it includes all fish fresh or salt.
