Free 10G stand & coralife T5

I built a stand for a 10G a while back and just don't have any use for it anymore:
Unfinished pine, 3 shelves / tiers, top obviously fits a 10G, the middle one will only accommodate a 2.5G, but a 5G would fit on the lowest. It's a little taller than store-bought stands, but far better made. Has a couple of small blue spots but otherwise really clean and in great shape. It's just not something I want to dismantle or trash if someone had use for it. Being taller, I highly recommend securing it to a wall, etc. Not tough to do.

The T5 fixture doesn't need much explanation. Runs 2 36" T5 bulbs. You'll need two new bulbs. The acrylic cover is MIA, so it would have to rest on tanks that have glass covers. The exterior shell and reflectors are in great shape. Invested heavily in LED's and just won't have a use for it anymore. As with the stand, this fixture looks great and does what it's intended for and I'd hate to throw it in the trash.

Just got the camera on my Iphone working again yesterday so I can now send a picture to serious inquiries only. PM'ing me your email address is much preferred. I work in Parsippany, and travel the I80 or route 15/206 corridors daily.

Neither will be available after this weekend as I need both gone and out of my way.

Thanks very much Angelo. I passed the stand off to a man I work with that is setting it up for his grand daughter. The girl is very glad. I ordered new lamps for the fixture. Plan on using it for Northern Australian Sundews, Drosera indica and Drosera petiolaris, carnivorous plants.

I passed along the advice to screw the stand to the wall.

He has been looking at my office tanks and asking a lot of questions about the Tropical Fish hobby. I'm steering him away from the big box fish stores to our quality LFS in the area.
