Hi everyone,

I have an opportunity to buy a new tank tomorrow but I'd love to hear your opinions on the set up before I meet the seller. I've had three Burundi frontosa for about two months in a 29 gallon tank (very small, I know-- hence the new tank) but I finally found what seems like a good replacement:

The tank is a 75 gallon AGA with a very attractive homemade cabinet and rena filstar (xp3) as well as a homemade pump. I know that a 6 foot tank is more desirable, but as a student on a budget this is more feasible- also the tank won't be filled with tons of frontosa, there will be at most four. Additionally, there is a 3D rock background which protrudes roughly 4 inches from the sides and back. I didn't want to ask the seller if its removable or not because it seems like he takes great pride in the tank, having designed it. Is a background of this type removable? What do you all think of it (I definitely will get rid of the vines)

Being relatively new to fishkeeping I'm a little unclear about how the pump works- my understanding is its' a wet/dry? It's $200 for everything, which seems like a good deal to me, what do you all think?

Here are photos he sent me, I just created a photobucket account so I think this should work:

Also, please reply soon, I need to meet the seller at 4pm tomorrow!!

Thanks,

Kiran

idk if you noticed.. but LOTS of ppl are trying to get those kinda tanks.. and u already got one prebuilt thats awesome man. and hey the fish will probably like it. but idk if id use that kinda display tank for just frontosa.. idk maybe look into some other oddities or something else outta an african lake that you might be able to add. that background probably adds a ton of hiding places for smaller fish

Go ahead and ask if the background is removable. Your buying it so you have every right to ask about that.

ya, theres nothing wrong with asking, if you dont want to offend him/her, just say something like if i ever need to remove the background is it removable? you know just to be nice if you think it would bother the owner!

thats not the biggest tank but it is a great size to have a cool setup and cool fish you should def get it and remove the vines like you said!
