what to do with aquarium?

I have a 48"x18"x24" fish tank. I've had it and the fish in it for years. I'm getting tired of all the up keep(weekly 50% water changes, filter cleaning, feeding etc) and the expense (200/month on food and filter media). I found someone who wants the fish.

any herp suggestion for the tank? No snakes unless the are actually suited to a screened top enclosure.

thx
Derrick

Corn or king snakes, we actually keep about 1/2 our snakes (boas, pythons, kings, corns) in screened top enclosures with no problems).

It's pretty dry in your area of the world, so when using glass and screen one must take into account the humidity of your natural enviroment.

lol, I think I know the humidity of my area, as well as how to adjust for it and even glass and screen can be adjusted for all but a few heavy humidity animals here. Now you want to give a clue on how to keep tanks consistently 82F and lower where the ambient temp may be 100F+ for 7 months straight that doesn't involve refridgerated air and high electric bills beyond the means of a college student I'll listen, I've been wanting brb and gtp for a while but they only folks I see with them here run refridgeration.
