    Hello everyone,

    Well, the time has come, I've decided to break down the tank. My wife and I came home from work today, and we both agreed that we just can't keep the tank up any longer. We rarely see it when the lights are on and everything's covered in algae. It's only been up for a short while, and I wish I could've kept it up longer, but I don't have the time or money for it anymore. I hope the inhabitants will fare better with someone else.

    Zambavi has first dibs, since I left him hanging on a purchase before.

    Here's what's in the package:

    Equipment
    150 gallon 60"x24"x20" acrylic tank with corner overflow (Does have scratching on the front panel, most are invisible when the tank's been filled)
    40 gallon AGA sump
    30" stand with black lacquer and bird's eye maple doors (The right door closes, but is bent inwards a little)
    Top-opening canopy with missing hinge
    2X96 W PC retrofit kit
    Koralia 4
    Koralia 1
    CPR BakPak (used in sump, leaks a bit from the output)
    Eheim 900 GPH pump (used as sump return)
    100 GPD Melev's RODI unit
    AutoTopoff.com dual switch controller and pump (not sure of head or brand)
    200 lbs LR
    100 lbs LS
    100 lbs dead LS

    Livestock

    Clarkii clown pair
    2" perc clown
    3" panther grouper
    7-head hammer
    Small GSP frag
    Bleached GBTA
    Pulsating Xenia
    Pulsing Sinularia
    Various hermits and snails
    Various colonies of zoas and palyzoas

    Take the whole package for $700. I do not want to piece this out and I would really like to move it this weekend. Please pm me for photos, because I can't seem to attach pictures at the moment.

    I'm interested in the Koralia 1 and the sump, the AGA is it a 40 breeder glass or a Plexi one?

    That is if you decide to part with the system.

    Thx

    Anthony, I'll still be around, I'm not leaving aquaria altogether. I'll probably go back to FW and set up a paludarium, depending on how much maintenance they require.

    Mario, the sump is actually just a 40G AGA without any baffles or anything. I forgot the measurements on it, but it's not a breeder. If I do end up parting out, I'll have to sell the livestock off before the eqpmt.

    The tank is by TruVu, it's probably around 5 years old. If anyone remembers the RC member "got chow", I believe it was his tank originally.

    As for pictures, I couldn't upload last night, so let's see if this works. It's a shot of the tank itself:

    Mike what are the dimensions of the tank?
    I've been looking for a 40 breeder since I need to fit a BIG skimmer inside.
    LMK please.

    Thx

    Mike could you take a pic of the upper edge, lower edge and the top cutouts of the tank? I want to see how thick the acrylic is on it. Some of Truvu's earlier tanks were a little on the thin side for my taste.. Let me know...

    Hey Mike,

    Sorry to hear you have to break down your tank. Best of luck with the sale and hopefully you'll have time to make a return one day.

    Oh no, it's cool Mike. Trying to prune back the GSP that I still have and reading about sinularia and sps freaked me out. Good luck with the sale!
