    Hi all.
    Just joined the site today.
    Looking for some good impartial advice.
    Looking at few tanks to get into this hobby.
    Can't really afford new just as yet so what would you suggest from the following used units


    1. Boyu byg 86 :R1000
      Boyu tl 550 : 2900
      Boyu mt508: 2000

      Thanks for advice

    I would skip the Boyu byg 86.
    That rounded from is not for me.

    Boyu mt508 is 80L and the Boyu TL550 is 128L
    I would go for the TL550

    Welcome. The TL550's are very popular, lots of people have them so there is always loads of advice available if you ever needed it. Plus we have a dedicated section on the forum just for those tanks. :)
