CO2 Tanks

I have three 5-lb CO2 tanks that I need to sell. I paid $80 each for them, and am willing to let them go for $25 apiece. Problem is, they are way too heavy to ship, besides being under pressure. The buyer has to come and pick them up. PM me for directions. I also have a 30-long with metal stand that cost me over $200. You can have it for $50 if you come and pick it up.

If you will ship I would give you $50 for one. I shipped a 20lb tank and it cost me $30. I wouldn't care if you emptied it either.

I only live in CT, so I'll give you $40 for one just to cover the shipping...

EDIT: Nevermind, just won a 5# tank from ebay...

Thanks all for the input. I emptied the CO2 and they weigh 10 pounds. They are 18 inches high. USPS parcel post to Seattle, for example, is $18, so it looks like these can be shipped at a reasonable cost. If anyone is still interested, PM me. You would have to pay me $25 plus the shipping cost.

If you were local that would be great for a spare tank. Just make sure you empy them before shipping it's against the law to ship them full.

Aquariums should smell like a pond. Just like where the fish come from.
