I snagged a 55g for $50 with the idea for my new birthday present, a tank head board in the bed room! (hay, a fish head )'> fish head board) First the sales pitch to the wife. drawings and romancing the stand of how nice an 8 foot stand would look holding her alarm clock! second, the cost... practically nothing. I will use the scrap wood from the redecoration project of our sons room. third, we need to do our bedroom---get rid of of the sterile white walls. SOLD!!!!!
