    I bought a used 120 gallon tank from bostonpop on mr. Me and a friend picked up the tank and the guy said nothing is wrong with the tank. I get it home.fill it up everything seems fine for three days. Then I wake up to a flood. I call the guy and he admitted the leak and said it wasn't that bad and he glued it. Well since yesterday I resealed the leaking overflow. I transferred everything into holding tanks with alot of casualties. Im so mad I lost my powder blue, three cleaner shrimps, peppermint shrimps, sixline, bubble coral and a few acan colonies. Hopefully no more as im starting to put the 120 back up.

    It's people like that, that give this hobby a black eye. If he/she were a good person they would give you a refund.

    I think I would be talking to a lawyer if you have any house damage from it...that is total BS.

    +1 Especially as the seller admitted mis-representing the tank.

    I hear civil suit~I did it when I caught some neighbors kids jumping on top of my 86 mustang~parents wound up paying $2700 in damages.

    If you were to tally up your total losses~I'm sure you'd find it well worth the trouble.

    I'm truly sorry for your loss L&L (((hugs)))

    i agree that its bad practice that the person lied to you and that in full confidence you should be able to use the product without problem... i only give this tip to anyone who plans on buying a used tank and reads this post.

    This is a good example of water testing ur tank with FW for a few days to see if anything leaks, a test like that could have avoided a flood and casualties.

    this wasn't pointed at the original poster... just proves that you can't believe anything anyone says and you should do your own tests to see if they were lying or not.

    no matter i dont blame ur angry at the person and i would be too, its even possible that a water test would have not shown this and no amount of sorry's and ill pay you back will change the fact of what happen. I along with everyone else am sorry too.

    he said the tank was good for 3 days, so even if he did a water test it would of came out positive. It sucks he didnt reviel the leak before buying, if he did and you still baught it then its on you, kind of a buy at your own risk and he wouldnt have any responsibility to your losses, but since he didnt say anything about it until after the fact he owes you.
