For Sale: Custom 75g shallow square starphire tank


Hello all, I am selling my square tank. Moving in a couple of weeks and I've decided I would rather not take it with me. Life circumstances have called for me to devote less time to this hobby too, unfortunately.

I originally bought this tank last year from Coast to Coast Custom Aquariums from New Jersey. The tank dimensions are 36"x36"x14". All four sides are made from Starphire glass. The tank is in like-new condition, nothing wrong with it at all. I can include the stand and the walnut stained wood panels that cover the sides.

Asking just $750 for it-- I paid much more brand new. A great opportunity for a very unique tank. PM me if more details are needed. Otherwise, please check my tank journal: http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...835&highlight=

We can also talk about the equipment that I have set up with this tank if you are interested in the whole package. Thanks!

Wish I didn't have to either..

I remember seeing your cube a while ago-- awesome what you managed to fit in there. Represent the LxW ratio!

Sweet mother of god....what equipment is included? I will be moving soon as well and might be interested in picking this up for the new place.

Where are you located exactly?

So what exactly do you get for 750? The entire tank package with plants and all?

Thanks

I still have all the original equipment I have the tank up and running with-- a Kessil Amazon Sun light, Fluval 406 canister filter, 300W heater, and a couple of Koralia powerheads. If you want the whole she-bang, we can work out a price.

I sold off a lot of the plants weeks ago, but I do still have a lot of low-lying crypts (willisi, nevilli, parva) and java fern left. Still have all the riparium plants also. If you're going to pick up both the tank and equipment, I can give you mostly all the plants and even some driftwood for free. The substrate I can include also-- why not keep the plants in their original environment, if you want, right? There's about 150 lbs of Eco-Complete in there.

Thanks. For some reason I thought it was the entire setup for 750 (plants, filter, tank, stand etc.). If that was the case I'd most likely be there on 8/31 to pick it up since that is when I am moving into the new place. If you cannot sell it by then, then maybe we can work out a deal or something to that effect. I actually do not even need the light since I have a great ATI dimmable fixture.

OK, I see. The only issue is our moving date ETA is August 15, so would need this gone by then. Seems like a long shot, but if anyone can coordinate within 2 weeks' time, that'd work out.
