WoodRiverTroutBum Without knowing what equipment is included I would say absolutely not. You could build a bigger and better system for that money more than likely. Besides that, creating your own is half the fun.

Seeing as it is in a tattoo shop, "assessed" maybe he has it maintained by an outside source who does maintenance on the tank and asked how much it would be worth in their shop.. 10k for a healthy established salty tank doesn't seem shocking depending on what is in it and all that or maybe he started with barley anything 18 years ago and now it is completely filled in so he asked a shop how much the corals would be worth now days. Just guessing though *shrug*
Some of those corals would go for 100$ alone. The bigger they are, the more they are. A small rock (about the size of my palm) with about 6 mushrooms on it cost me 40$ and those are the cheap ones..

Pooky125 From what little salty stuff I remember, it doesn't look like there's anything hugely valuable in there, though it's hard to tell from 2 little pictures. But, it does look extremely healthy and well taken care of. Fish included. I actually wouldn't be surprised if he got what he was asking for it, honestly.

Hard to say on that one without seeing a list of what they have. Some rare corals or fish are worth big money and I've seen SW tanks easily top that. More than likely like not and he's overhyping it but it's possible it is worth it. Also depends on lights on the tank, etc. Cheapo fixture could be $150, high tech ones can be $1000 alone.

A list would help though. It's like someone posting a shrimp tank with over 100 shrimp in it for sale. 100 cherries, maybe $100 worth of shrimp. 100 Taiwan Bee's, $4000 in shrimp. lol.

His tank is overstocked, but still.
It's more like if you bought everything new it would be $500.

mrduna01 Some custom furniture especially as nice looking as that can fetch big money. Someone not as experienced with aquaria and a crap load of cash might very well pay that for the tank. The builder would have to be the Orange county choppers of the aquarium industry though. . Maybe we can turn this in to a "over priced Craigslist find" thread. That would be fun seeing as how I have laughed at these finds for days.

Oh, the cabinet is STUNNING, the tank itself. Well. Good try buddy, good try. I'm not even so sure we can go so far as to call it a reef. All I see is some rock and LOTs of algae in every variety. Though, with 2 magnum 350's on it, who'd be surprised? That's a pretty piddly amount of water movement for a tank this size. LOL.
