South Bend & Michiana Freecycle
Offer: 29 gallon aquarium fish tank (Newport Rd) 15h - Pretty sure I no longer have the top for it. It was used for many years but has been sitting in my garage for quite a while. You can have all the gravel or decorations inside the tank or I can take those out. It's gonna be heavy either way. If you want to use it for something other than fish, I'd thoroughly clean it and rinse it first. If you want to use it for fish you can clean it to the degree you want to. If you want to keep the tank bacteria intact you might just want to rinse and scrub everything with only water. If you thoroughly sterilize everything you'll have to cycle the tank from scratch to build up new bacteria cultures. White residue on the tank is going to be mostly from aquarium salt, which is not the same as salt for saltwater tanks, it's more of an antimicrobial water softener. My tanks were all freshwater tanks. It looks super filthy but it's basically just dusty and salty. Should clean easily with a brush and water. I also have lot of other leftover gravel, mostly red rocks, if you want those.
