Question Should I?????

http://london.kijiji.ca/c-pets-acces...QAdIdZ52657458

I have found this tank on a local site and I am going to see it tonight.
Need help!! Should I buy it or save my money seems like a good deal to me, however it uses a UG filter..... thanks for the comments

I think I would pass on it, although it may be worth $10. It looks tall and doesn't give fish much swimming room. Also UGF are not very efficient, in my opinion.

I agree w/ Sharon. I had a hex w/ an UGF. I was very unhappy with it. The UGH did not work well. The tank water looked yellow w/ weekly water changes 1 day after the WC, and I prefer more room side to side. I tore it down after a month.

I had a 5 gallon hex with UG filter and I gave it away. It was too hard to keep clean and never looked that great. The second one seems much preferable.

Does the second tank have a heater? Keep in mind that the lid will cost about $30.00, the heater about the same give or tank a few dollars.

Around here, PA, I can buy a heater for $10.00. If you need a cover, use cardboard or screening until you can afford something better.
