    I just picked up a 220 drilled tank and thought I would share my project.

    I posted an ad out on craigslist looking for a 125 or larger tank.

    I was called the next day about a 220 gallon that needs to be cleaned and re-sealed.

    After some dealing - we came to an agreed price and they delivered to my house.

    So here we are.

    Sale Description:
    1 220 Gallon drilled tank with Overflows and Bulk Heads
    1 Stand
    1 Wet / Dry with all plumbing

    total cost:
    300.00


    Here are a couple of pics

    A enjoyable task I must say in anticipation of new set up. Nice cabinet as well!

    btw, for appropriately dosing (to over dosing) purposes down the road, if dimensions are 72x24x24, it is 180G tank. If 72x24x30(H), it is 220 G. Either way, good purchase over all I belileve.

    Good Luck with new venture!

    Update:
    Got most of the glass cleaned up and working on the overflows.
    the tank had ALOT of velcro on the top frame and after a bottle of goo b gone if it almost completely clean.

    word of advice:
    these tanks are HEAVY - have help when moving it around :)
    Because of the depth - put the tank on the floor - even with a step stool, I had a hard time getting the bottom of the tank :)

    Will post pics soon:

    You are correct and I apologize for the wrong measurements.
    I did post a size correction, when I first posted the thread, but it didn't submit.

    the actual tank measurements are
    72(L)x24(D)x30(H)
