|it's been awhile...I'm starting over...|
You want what when?
So it's been 7 years since I had a "real tank"...and it's been 4 years since I even had my betta tank. So I'm thinking of starting over. I know I have a ten gallon stashed away, fiancee just mentioned looking at like goodwill for a bigger tank...my apt temp fluctuates massively...but Ineed this git my sanity...thoughts on getting a tank from goodwill? Keeping balanced temps? Thanks. Hml

Not sure if its still on, but Petco was having their 1$ per gallon sale at the end/beginning of the year. Could be a good opportunity to get a nice sized tank for potentially less than at goodwill.
I've gotten one tank from a charity shop/thrift store. It was ok but I ended up having to redo the seals. It wasn't a hard or expensive task (razor blades, acetone and some new silicone), but might just be worth it as far as time to buy a new tank.
I'll be in the same boat with restarting in the next month or two, since I've been living in employee housing with my work for the past two years. Hopefully my tanks in storage are still in good enough shape to revamp into something incredible!

Good advice brandeeno! Don't give up, there is no rush. It takes quite a long time to set up a tank in the first place.
