20 Gallon Available in Boston w/Shrimp, Peacock Gudgeon, and Snails

I'm moving out of Boston and to the 495 belt in a couple of months and would love for my fish tank to not be part of that move.

So far I've ripped up the java fern and basically all of the wisteria. I've also gotten rid of most of the fish, shrimp and snails, but there's still more in there. That big piece of driftwood in the picture is Mopani.

I'd love to get rid of the whole setup as a packaged deal, but if you're only interested in some of the livestock I could entertain that transaction.

Here's what I have for livestock:
- 1 Peacock Gudgeon
- 2 Nerite Snails
- 1 Amano Shrimp (male)
- Tons of Red Cherry Shrimp
- Tons of Assassin Snails (mostly hidden in the substrate)

Here's the hardware:
- 20 gallon glass tank
- Solid wood stand (28 inches high)
- Whisper 40 power filter
- Glass cover
- Dual-bulb, high-output light fixture

I also have a bunch of random supplies to part with (e.g. Flourish Excel, Iron, Potassium, Trace, etc.) as well as food.

The substrate is mineralized soil mixed with crushed coral on the bottom, with either Flourite or Eco-Complete on top... I honestly forget which one.

I'm not looking for a ton of money here... my main interest is to get rid of the tank by mid-August. Feel free to shoot me an offer if you're interested.

Thanks,
Jim

I'm actually not sure if it's male or female, but I'm pretty sure that it's female. I can never see it long enough to determine what sex it is. Even with all the plants torn out, I usually can't find it because it's hiding in the driftwood somewhere.

Wow! Thats a timid gudgeon.

If someone wants the setup, but doesn't want the gudgeon long term I might be interested. I don't want another male though.

I'm not too sure how many assassin snails there are. I already pawned off about 40 recently.

Earlier today I saw a few adults and when I checked quickly just now I saw around 10 juveniles. Most of them are buried in the substrate, so it's hard to tell.

Thanks Man! Good luck with the move! Hope it's cooler than it was when we moved the tank! (Unlikely, but here's hoping.)
