    I'm looking to change out some tanks and need a few 40 gallon breeder tanks.

    Have some 20 gallon long tanks available. Also some 10 gallon tanks and some 15 gallon tanks. All used. Some in great shape, others not so great but clean and hold water.

    Tempting

    Do you have four 15s and what do you want for them? I have an extra 40 someone gave me but it's the kind with the sliding lid designed for reptiles. Will take a look at it and see if it's as sturdy as the regular variety if that's of interest to you.

    There are 4 fifteen gallon tanks. Two had been drilled in the bottom, but I patched them a few years ago with glass/aquarium sealant. All in good shape. $7 each or all for $25. No lids.

    Thanks Francine, will pick the 40b up next weekend.

    I still need another 40 breeder. Anyone have one they would like to sell to me. Avatar, was yours a regular 40B? I am not interested in the lids, I do not use them.

    Still have for sale a number of used but clean 10 gallon, 15 gallon, and 20L gallon tanks. I want $0.50 per gallon for any of them. Can deliver to the next CCA meeting on September 8th.

    I do have a couple 10 gallon glass lids for $4 each and one plastic 20L lid for $6.

    Frank,

    I'll take the 20L. My wife has a turtle that needs more space.

    Missed it by that much

    It's 1/8" glass rather than 3/16" or 1/4" - will hold water but not designed to be filled. Anyone interested in a critter tank/terrarium?

    Are the 15g tanks spoken for? If not, I'd like two that weren't repaired.
    Just to be sure, they have the same footprint as a ten but taller?

    Shawn,

    I have for 15s left. They are all drilled in the bottom but the holes are covered with glass and sealed with aquarium sealant. I have been using them for a few years that way. I'm replacing these with 20s.

    And no, the footprint of a 15 gallon is not the same as a 10 gallon. In inches, a 10 gallon is 10X20 and a 15 is 12X24 give or take a half inch depending on the frame used.

    Awe crap! I thought they were the same. :( I'll take some measurements and see if they'll fit and get back to you. Thanks Frank.

    Ahem

    Not by me I hope - much as I'd like, just can't fit them in my crib without entering into the realm of the truly absurd.
