Selling Everything 240g tank, 150g frag tank, etc Shreveport

Post by kfennell on Thu 08 Dec 2011, 11:55 am

Hey guys Matt_longview said that I should post this over here to see if anyone is interested, I would work with a few people if you guys wanted to buy some things as a group like matt was mentioning.


Here is an imgur album of pictures taken last night - it is by no means a picture of everything.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

OK, so I just got a job offer that I can't refuse and i would like to sell my tanks and move. The tank is located in Shreveport, LA

I would prefer to sell everything at once, to preferably one person, and I will price it all accordingly. I am still at work now, but hopefully by the end of tonight i will update this thread with the latest pictures after I get everything cleaned up. Everything is currently set up and running well. This tank has been set up for 2 years. I will only piece it out in very large chunks, for example if someone wants all the livestock and rocks so that I could take the tank down then I might do that, reallllly want to sell it all at once.

What it includes: EVERYTHING to run a tank.

240g acrylic reef tank with double overflow on a nice oak stand all custom made by midwest custom aquatics, this stuff was $4700 new. 3x 400w MH with newish Ushio bulbs and large lumenarc reflectors. Only two of the blueline electric ballasts are currently working, might be a wiring problem, dunno. 4x Koralia 4 powerheads, 2x 60" T5 lights with reflectors and ballasts, and all the hardware to hang the lights from the ceiling.

150g frag tank that is 4x5' and about 9" deep. this tank is glass and home made, but really nice. with an oak stand and a really nice storage area underneath. Note that this tank needs a double door to go inside. 2x 400w magnetic ballast with 2x 400w ushio magnetic bulbs with large lumen bright reflectors. 3x Powerheads, I think one is a sicce 3.

150g horse trough sump which holds all the support equipment. Auto-top-off with RODI, the filter guys double reactor, calcium reactor with digital guage and relay switch, 2x CO2 tanks. like 10 power strips. Lots of heater of all types.

2x reefkeeper 2 systems in various states of working.
1x Reefkeeper mini that works perfect
~250 lbs of rock in the main tank all completely coraline encrusted.
~80 lbs of dry rock
~150 lbs of live base rock in the sump

~$2000 worth of corals in the main tank of all types.
~$1000 worth of coral frags and such in the back tank.

about 10 small fish, a large yellow tang, a large hippo tang, a large blue line angel, a nice christmas wrasse, and all the inverts you would normally find in a tank this size, some cleaner shrimp, lots of snails and maybe a few hermits, some sand sifting starfish and a really nice blue linkia.

SWC 2S Cone skimmer which skimms the whole 500g system and keeps it pretty clean.

red sea max ozone generator.

Reeflo pump, I think it is a barracuda, I have it outside running the returns from the sump back to the two tanks.

All the plumbing, with lots of true union valves, probably $1000 worth.

3-4 salt buckets

A unique display stand with room for 2x 30g tanks and a sump with all the plumbing and a small built in light. I was using this as a qt tank, it's awesome. Stand is custom made out of dark stained cherry comes with no sump, but I do have the octupus 250g skimmer that i was using with it.

9 gallon acrylic tank, i think a nano wave?

Then all the nicknacks that a person would collect over 4 years of having a reef tank, these add up to $1000 at least but theres no way to add them all up, everything I have would be included. All cleaning supplies, extra food, some chemicals etc.

Price: Everything, you come and get it $4400. Feel free to make an offer but i think that's pretty fair? I don't know. I bet that if someone bought this and then brought it back to dallas they would get closer to $10k for it.

If someone wants say, just the frag tank, or just the livestock I could do that too.

If you listed the "Livestock" with pricing, I'm sure you could get several members here interested. I'm no longer in a position to buy a "Lot" but would be interested in a few things. Blue Linkia & Black Clown for sure.

I may be interested in some of the small fish & what looks like a Royal Gamma, but those actually listed are either to big or not reef friendly to my softies/feather dusters.
As Jason said, livestock with pricing would help most certainly.

I just got a call saying that some of you might be interested in buying all the livestock, lets say $1300 for everything but the angel fish. The rock alone is worth $800+++ so it's a good deal IMO.

What is "Everything"? I believe we're looking for a breakdown in fish, coral, LR ect...

OK, I'm interested in some small fish, live rock and corals, so add me to the list of potentials.
Also interested in one of the Reef Keeper systems, probably the "lite" system, but you never know.

hmm, maybe its time we get together to see what everyone wants as we have enough people interested to buy and split (6-7 people so far) all except equipment?

that would mean $185-$225 per person give or take at his asking price of $1300.00 for all but equipment.

I know I am the new kid on the block, so my tank would not be established for the hard to keep corals, LPS, SPS, but I know I could use a bit more color to my tank Very Happy and LR, fish, and we can all use salt. I really like that frogspawn/toadstool or what ever that green with purple tips is and that green carpet looking one.

A complete list of what you have would be helpful to us.

I have been neglecting this thread because I think I have a buyer for everything lined up, I will update this though if that falls through, trust me that $1300 for everything is a HUGE HUGE deal, in some cities the rock alone would sell for way more then that.

Little bit of zoanthids.


240g acrylic reef tank with double overflow on a nice oak stand all custom made by midwest custom aquatics, this stuff was $4700 new. 3x 400w MH with newish Ushio bulbs and large lumenarc reflectors. Only two of the blueline electric ballasts are currently working, might be a wiring problem, dunno. 4x Koralia 4 powerheads, 2x 60" T5 lights with reflectors and ballasts, and all the hardware to hang the lights from the ceiling.
150g frag tank that is 4x5' and about 9" deep. this tank is glass and home made, but really nice. with an oak stand and a really nice storage area underneath. Note that this tank needs a double door to go inside. 2x 400w magnetic ballast with 2x 400w ushio magnetic bulbs with large lumen bright reflectors. 3x Powerheads, I think one is a sicce 3.

150g horse trough sump which holds all the support equipment. Auto-top-off with RODI, the filter guys double reactor, calcium reactor with digital guage and relay switch, 2x CO2 tanks. like 10 power strips. Lots of heater of all types.

2x reefkeeper 2 systems in various states of working.
1x Reefkeeper mini that works perfect

SWC 2S Cone skimmer which skimms the whole 500g system and keeps it pretty clean.

red sea max ozone generator.

Reeflo pump, I think it is a barracuda, I have it outside running the returns from the sump back to the two tanks.

All the plumbing, with lots of true union valves, probably $1000 worth.

3-4 salt buckets

A unique display stand with room for 2x 30g tanks and a sump with all the plumbing and a small built in light. I was using this as a qt tank, it's awesome. Stand is custom made out of dark stained cherry comes with no sump, but I do have the octupus 250g skimmer that i was using with it.

9 gallon acrylic tank, i think a nano wave?

Then all the nicknacks that a person would collect over 4 years of having a reef tank, these add up to $1000 at least but theres no way to add them all up, everything I have would be included. All cleaning supplies, extra food, some chemicals etc.

All the livestock has been taken, sorry. Here's an album of the equipment that's left. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I have an inventory list of items and prices but don't see how I can upload the excel file. I'd copy/paste but it's over 100 items. PM with an email address if you're interested.
