Selling it all - moving out of state

reeferoo

Lady Tank Tinkerer
Hey folks,

I’m looking to move out of the country, so it’s time to say goodbye to the tank! I don’t have any super high-end equipment, but I take good care of my livestock and treat my supplies with care so they are in good shape. My tank is cleaned and maintained monthly by AquaZone Aquarium Service.*

I’d love for someone to buy the whole thing so I’ll give this post a little time to try and get a buyer, but I included breakdown prices so you can get in line for that as needed.

Asking $1,500 for the whole lot. The livestock alone prices well over $1,000, so that’s less than $500 for the tank, stand, chiller, and all the equipment you need for a turnkey system. I was able to move this tank still plumbed and with its stand in a regular pick up truck on the freeway from Fontana to Upland - drained the water, took out fish, rock, and all but 2-3 inches of water/sand and we were able to load it into the truck bed to move it. 2 people were able to carry it around like that. Bring jugs/buckets/tubs and keep as much of the original water as you can to prevent any issues and have a 25% water change ready (you could do this to transfer the livestock into some other dry tank you’ve been meaning to get going!). It’s been running in this new house for 14 months.

If I break it down, you guys know the drill - corals out first, then rock, then fish, then all the dry goods. As long as the tank still has life in it, I need all the equipment to keep that life happy :)*

Please ask for more pictures/videos/measurements as needed. I’m very cautious with COVID stuff, so I’d like to keep as much social distancing as possible. Many of these corals are pretty encrusted and I don’t have fancy fragging saws to cut them out, so it might be best to buy the whole rock if that matters to you (which might mean you need to buy multiple corals) or they may break up a bit when I try to get them off - be forewarned!

Ok last two!

I'll track the people who show interest in case I break down but I'm really hoping to sell it all in one shot so I'm going to give it a little time to try and get a buyer for that first :)fugelight.jpgskimmer.jpg

I think 120g should be 24x24x48... Or are you listing total system volume?

I’ve got a potential buyer for the whole thing but may still be able to sell the coral first.

I’ve added names for people in line so far. Thank you everyone for your interest!

Keep it coming!

I'm interested in the bengaii cardinals, red monti cap (#1) , scrambled egg zoa (#6), favia (#19), meteor shower (#20), and I might know someone interested in the tank/stand/sump (price?) if you part out. Let me know. Thanks.

Thanks very much, dpstrand! You're first in line for all of those items.

I hadn't priced out the tank/sump/stand alone - does that mean no flow, pumps, lights, etc? If I don't get a buyer on the whole thing (1 person is scheduling a time to take a look), then I can part out corals, then rock/fish, then finally all the dry goods and the tank/stand/sump.
