Hey guys,

I got a 75 gallon tank off craigslist for free recently. Planning to set it up on a very minimal budget (aka I love fish + in school = no money except for Ramen noodles)

I was hoping that someone has some working equipment just laying around that I can take off your hands. Right now I am in need of pretty much everything:
-gravel or sand
-plastic plants
-glass canopy
-hood lights
-powerhead
-filter
-spray bar
-under gravel filter
-etc etc etc

If you have anything you are willing to part with please PM me. Thanks in advance! :allah

I'm a fish tank junkie and one piece of advise I can give you is to use filler concrete gravel from Home Depot to use as tank gravel. For 75 you'll need about 2 40 lb bags which are like $3 each. That's $6 to fill a 75. It would cost $30 or more to buy pet store gravel. The home depot stuff is a nice mix of natural tans/browns which I prefer or painted fake looking gravel. I know its not free but it would probably cost that much in gas to go get it from somebody. Just wash it REAL good as it has some sand/funk in the bag.

Also for general decor I like to pick up driftwood nice rocks from places I fish. Lake Michigan beaches are your best bet for good driftwood.
