Used Aquariums and Fish Tanks There are a lot of home aquarium products gathering dust in the closets and basements of former pet owners across North America. It's possible that the very item you are looking for is being offered on an online auction site right now. The biggest auction site is still eBay.
Everybody knows about eBay. They have hundreds of thousands of items from bobble heads to cars. And it's not just used stuff, they also serve as a way for companies to get rid of last year's models, blemished items, overstocks and discontinued items. Needless to say, these items are offered at big discounts.
If you haven't registered with eBay yet, you might as well just go ahead and do it now.
Registration is free, plus they just ask for your name, address and email. You will likely find something on eBay one day that you will just have to have, so you might as well be ready.
A short word of warning, however, certain items, such as large glass aquariums, are very difficult to pack and box up in a manner
so they will withstand the journey from a shipper such as UPS. Most individuals not working at an online pet store or catalog company will probably not have the correct packing materials, box and experience to package a glass aquarium correctly.
