    I don't know if you guys remember Zepplock (Vladimir), but he's now busy with two little ones of the human variety and has decided that he needs to shut down his tank... he has some things to sell;

    Pop on over and see if there is anything you can use!

    The tank is a very nice rimless tank


    - ($550) Used CadLights Artisan 50g cube (2x2x2) low-iron glass tank. Rimless, black silicone.
    Includes a sump, CadLights skimmer, all plumbing, heater and Eheim return pump. Center overflow, drilled for drain/return.

    - ($150) Used EcoTech MP10 pump

    - ($300) Almost new LED lights: Custom (white/blue) Nanobox Duo (http://nanoboxreef.com/duo.html) Includes a light, controller with cloud/lightning config. Also comes with a hanging kit and a pole attaching to the tank stand

    If you buy it as a package or a BAR member you get 10% discount.
    Located in San Jose.



    Contact me or Vlad through his facebook link.

    I remember Vlad, he was a nice guy... but come on is that Craigslist? The posting says $1 in the big font, then lures you in to the real prices! :D

    if he's letting the dbtc go as a sale, that would be very sad

    I've never had any DBTC come back, so I think it would just be "normal."

    -edit: I would also assume that his dbtc died vs accusing him of selling. This is an equipment sale, not a livestock sale, either he gave stuff to friends or we missed the sale, or the tank crashed or who knows.

    It'd be one thing if you caught him selling it, but I'd err on the side of caution in a case like this.

    I doubt Vlad would, he was cool dude. Was just asking what had happen to the dbtc stuff as if it was still available i would have helped with it.

    Sorry guys, here's his email..


    zepplock@yahoo.com

    BTW, Vlad would never sell DBTC corals. He is an extremely generous person and he'd never do that for any sort of profit. His tank crashed a few times and, like I said he has two kids now (he had no kids when he started the tank).

    In fact, he just gave me all his fish (free). If he had any corals, he'd have given them to me, I think maybe he had a final crash and realized he didn't have time for the hobby AND kids.

    My concern was if he had any DBTC items that we could have help him move forward IF he had any left.

    Hopefully sometime in the next 4 months. We're finalizing on where my office is gonna be and I should be moving hopefully sometime this holiday.

    Anyhoo, hope Vlad finds a buyer soon. I'd pick up some of that gear, but have been sitting on gear for awhile myself.
