    65g 48x18x17 used tank for $40. Comes with crappy lights and prob the plastic top. I dunno if I like those dimensions and I'd need to get a stand, but the price is nice and low. I haven't seen a picture so I can't tell what the condition is. I was hoping to find a 2nd 46g bow that I could put a snowflake eel in and maybe another predator fish or two. What you think I should do?

    If I eventually get a 220 or larger tank will a 65g sump be large enough?

    I found out that the tank was used to hold plants as a terrium. Would the chemicals used have any effect on the tank in the future?

    you could always give it a good scrubbing and use vinegar to clean it

    if i picked it up it would be for sump reasons not for wasting money on another small setup ( not that it would be a waste ) it would be cool, but you already have the 46 so i would aim high and maybe use it as a sump

    I'd use it as a sump too, that'd be a really good sized sump. I don't think the fact that it was used as a terrarium would make it unusable for SW. Just clean it well.
