Default fish tanks

So I'm looking at getting a fish tank. I grew up with a 55 gallon tank And I just want my own now. I'm looking used on Craigslist and found a 10 gallon with everything needed but fish and I have that one down to $20 or a 20 gallon with everything needed and I have that one down to $40. Anybody have any opinions?

The 20 gallon with everything for 40 is a great deal, I got the gf a brandnew 20gallon setup for her b day for like 130.

I'd stay away from 10 gal tanks....after I had some issues with mine I spoke to some "fish experts" lol.....they mentioned the smaller tanks like the 10 gal seem to be hard to get your PH levels and temp stable and steady....bigger tank, much better sucess....I'm looking for like a 75 or 100 right now...would be fun to get back into it again...good luck!

Ive never had a problem with 10gallons, they are the only ones Ive used for fish...Ive owned close to 50 tanks up to 150gal long tank, but they were used for reptiles.

Check out Petco... I was there a few days ago in MN and they had a $1 per gallon sale going... not sure if it's everywhere but might be worth looking into...

Yeah, thats just for the glass enclosure...The lids and pumps and filters and heater, and decorations are what rape you.

Yeah but you could shop around for good deals on the rest... IMO the tank is the most important part to make sure you get right

I would base the size of the tank on the kind of fish you put in it.

Then again, I can't really talk... I've got a 20 gallon tank with a 5 lb largemouth bass in it.lol

I think this is the first time I've ever heard of someone keeping a game fish as a pet.

I don't like the idea of a 10gal. just because of limitations. 20gal. is a nice size. I suppose it depends a lot on the type of fish you're going to house in it...

I was thinking about some Oscars. I think their the coolest looking fish lol
