    Here we go again

    Well I just found a 150 Gal drilled tank for $75. I can't pass that up. So I have no choice but to buy the tank, build a stand, ask yo guys 1000 questions (because I have never had a drilled tank,plumbing etc...). Now I can do everything right. Not by listening to advice from a LFS! I can't wait...
