    Craigslist Overpriced Deal Of The Day

    I know it's sort of copying the MASC thread, but I think it'd be funny to post the overpriced deal of the day.

    Well, you know what I mean, He may have more than $2,000 invested in it, but you never get that back. What do you think a full set-up like that would go for round here, $250 maybe?

    Wow that is a deal.....

    Well just think he has it made on water change days.

    So if he has a ten gallon sump, he is totaling about 14 gallons of surface area with 100lb of rock.

    Every two weeks then, he needs 2.8 gallons of salt?? How long does that take to cook

    Either reality will hit and the price will drop or someone who is new to the hobby will buy it not knowing any better.

    I'd feel bad, however, I paid $200 for my 55 like two years ago, which wasn't horrible, but it wasn't a great price.

    snials are extra rare and thus the price.

    Wow, not to mention he is going to reduce the water so it will travel easier. I assume that means he plans on moving it around half full. He is just asking for shattered glass in the face...
