Fluval 104

I believe that filter is the same thing as what is now the Fluval 105. The 105 sells locally for about $100, a little cheaper online. I'd say fair price depends largely on how easy it is to get parts for. I'd think you could get easily $50 for it if it's unused. If you ask much more, you're getting too close to the price of the newer model IMO. It's a wonderful filter for something in the 10-15 gallon range.

lol. I wasn't including shipping in that quote. He could likely get more than $50 if he isn't in a hurry to sell.

Asking depends on your needs. Time vs. money.
I think that half retail plus shipping would probably be the best you'd get online.
Try for $80 locally and let someone haggle you down to $65 - $70. The best sale on used goods is when both parties think they came out ahead.

If you're in a real hurry for money, I can PayPal $30.00 immediately. ;-)
