Leaving the Hobby

Hey all. I have been neglecting my tank for almost a year now. With the way things are, I do not have time for my tank. Heater burned out so looking to get rid of it before the cold weather comes. I am looking to get rid of everything. I will begin by giving away my livestock. Used equipment will be sold after.

******Livestock are accounted for at this time******

Stock:
9 Rummynose Tetras
3 adult BN Plecos (1 female albino, 1 female black, 1 male black)
1 Bolivian ram
2 Panda Cories
2-3 baby BN Plectos (some how they were spawning despite the neglect).

Pickup or meetup: You can pick them up from Bay Ridge Brooklyn or I can meet you somewhere in Brooklyn/Queens pending arrangements and availability.

I prefer to give fish to as little people to make delivery easier. Those taking more will have priority.

Minus the algae, the fish look in decent shape. That being said, I am telling whoever is willing to adopt these fish to quarantine to avoid any issues.

See below for some pictures. More can be posted/sent if requested.

Hey all. I know its been awhile. Listing tank & stand, lights, and filters on sale for now.

Tank & Stand $50. Stand was purchased from Petsmart. Its no longer listed on their website but here is a link with specs - http://www.buyzillion.com/1117161143...and-with-shelf. Doors are wobbly and cannot be opened more than seen in pics. Seems to be a design flaw and there were comments about it on the Petsmart page.

Coralife PC 48" Light Fixture: Sold.

Fluval 205: Sold.

Eheim 2213: Sold.

Stand and tank will have to be picked up. Others can be arranged to meet somewhere. I can show filters in operation if I still have the tank and you want to pick up.

More to be sold once I sort through it.

Not really needing them, but if nobody takes them, I can take the bolivian ram and panda cories - I already have 4 of these rams, and more pandas than I can count, so they'll be in good company.
