    fish tanks

    always grab fish tanks.
    you can get like 10+ bux for them on CL
    you can sell a plastic shopping bag full for like 10bux
    all the other parts, pumps, decor, etc can be sold too...

    just make sure not to drop a stove on top of them when loading your truck

    collecting san joses scrap

    I think he meant a shopping bag full of gravel, or maybe it was fake plants?

    or fish.
    I know lying is wrong, but if the elephant man came in now in a blouse with some make up on, and said, "How do I look?" Would you say, bearing in mind he's depressed and has respiratory problems, would you say, "Go and take that blusher off you mis-shapened elephant tranny?" No. You'd say, "You look nice... John""

    Doubt you could sell many near me. I see them in the free section on CL all the time. Hell I just bought a 20gallon at a yard sale for 5 bucks to replace my 10 gallon.

    yeah, that is what i meant... and the 'live' sand used in salt water tanks is worth even more as well as driftwood
