How much would you be willing to pay for this tank setup for?

Curious to what you guys would pay for a plug and play shrimp tank setup. Since I will be selling mine lol. It was used for shrimp culls.

Would shrimp keepers be interested in a setup like this?






Basically I'm selling the whole thing but don't know what to price it at. So far the whole package is:

- standard 10 gallon tank with light fixture
- a timer that runs in 30min increments
- sponge filter with marina 50 airpump
- crystal shrimp netlea substrate (only used for 2 months)
- nice medium sized driftwood
- 12 pieces of cholla wood
- complementary plants: java moss / frogbit floaters

overall condition: no leaks & mild scratches

Thanks for reading (:

its a nice basic setup. I'd guess as a package ~$70 maybe I'd be willing to pay for a complete setup like that.

netlea substrate is hard to come by in the US.

$25 used, $50 brand new + $7 if there were a HOB filter.

many folks are skeptical of used substrate so i wouldnt say its value is consist amongst all hobbyists. Keepers of more exotic varieties may likely dump and use their own simply to guarantee the properties and expected life of active substrates.

Fluorescent hoods aren't high in demand.

TBH, the package would be far more attractive with LEDs and a rimless tank regardless of price and used substrate.

It would cost me bet.500-600 to buy a new setup and 400-500 shekels for a used setup like this.
These 2 items are difficult to get your hands upon!
1.Crystal shrimp netlea substrate
2.12 pieces of cholla wood

Unfortunately, I agree with the used substrate opinion. I don't use anyone else's used substrate because I don't know what problems come along with it.

You can trust me (; !

Anyways, thanks for the replies everyone.

I think I'll start off high then cut it off at $50 after a month has gone by.
