I saw this today in a craigslist post:

It's a 90g lobster style tank. I guess it has double panes of glass? I never had heard of that before but maybe it's to cut down on the glass sweating? I also don't know if the condenser works, sounds like more how a fridge cools down. The guy said the bottom is plexi and there are condenser tubes under it. That's all I know about it just wanted to see what some of you thought.

I have one pretty similar, w/the double pane can't see if they included a pic bc the posting was deleted, but here is what mine looks like.

DO IT.

 

 

Assuming everything works, the main issue with lobster tanks is temperature management. They're not usually built to very exacting standards, being designed for short-term holding and not long-term survival, so sometimes they don't hold a steady temperature as well as we would like.

 

But they're still pretty kick-ass. ;)
