Pricing Fish Stuff on Craigslist?

I have some used tanks and supplies (filters, lights, heaters, driftwood, etc.) that I wish to sell on craigslist, but I have no idea how to price them. I need to get rid of them quickly because I'm moving to an apartment soon, which usually means I should price them low. But I need money (who doesn't?) so I'd like to get as much as possible for them. I've seen recommendations of $0.50-2.00 per gallon for tanks and varying percentages of the original price for other items. What do you suggest?

Also, most of the stuff has some amount of fish gunk on it. I could clean it, but is it really worth the extra effort?
