I have a suggestions for a club activity or for one of the meetings.

I volunteer my residence and garage for this.

I say one of us, or the club as a whole find so cheap tanks on craigs list that are being sold because the owner got tired of cleaning the sludge out. So we have a tank with algae and funk all over it in the glass. With Clown vomit gravel and a dirty filter.

Then we take it in and go through the A to Z process of turning an old nasty ship wreck of a tank into a new shiny awesome tank. and then either re-sell or auction.

Thoughts?

I think this would be fun and a great idea. I'd be willing to help.

I like it! It would be a learning experience for some people, a chance to demonstrate skills for others, and a way to help the club for all.

The Craigslist (or garage sale!) team would have to be committed to finding things for this activity and not mind passing up great bargain for themselves.

We could vote on how much to spend.

I'd be interested to help, more for the learning experience than anything
