I picked this tank up off of the side of the road, at a home that is next door to my work place, along with a couple of 10G's and a 5G, and lots of (mostly junk) equipment.

Spoke with the homeowner, she told me all of the tanks were less than a year old, that the person who had kept fish moved away, and she was cleaning house of all fishkeeping supplies. The tanks were filthy, and had taped on backgrounds that were a mess.

At any rate, I cleaned up the 75G, and it looks practically new....silicon seals are still fresh and pliable, no scratches on the glass, and the top support crossbar is intact.....but, I HAVE NOT LEAK TESTED THE TANK...the homeowner said that none of them leaked when they were put by the road, for what it's worth.

After much consideration (and discouragement from Mrs. Slap), I have decided not to keep the tank...I have 5 others in my very small house, just don't have the room for it.

If you want it, you can pick it up at my house, no meet-ups, please. I'm in Southeast Texas, near Beaumont. PM me if interested...I'd like to get it out of the way, it's in my garage on my work table...thanks for reading.

HATE humidity, thinking Eastern side of El Paso.
That would be your best bet, then...pretty much anywhere in West Texas...we are looking at areas around the Big Bend/Fort Davis area, beautiful country out there...and, NO hurricane threat, whatsoever...
