So does anyone sell tanks on this forum, or mostly plants? I have tried craigslist. I have over 2K invested in it. What should be a reasonable price?

You'd have a much larger market if you were closer to nyc. If you can't find anyone up there to buy it, may be more profitable to part it out and ship everything except the tank/stand.

You might want to try providing some more detail about the light fixture and CO2 system as well as some better pictures of the stand and canopy. Still probably tough to get $700 but you might do better than $200.

I would love to get it, though I live in Virginia (we are coming up to NY for Thanksgiving)

Alrighty, I get back in town later today, I'll load it up with pics.

Thanks.

EDIT: Some pics!

The Oscar is the sole occupant, you can tell I am not around much to give the tank the love it needs. There is a LOT of substrate, two ALL GLASS 55 X2 fixtures. One of the fixtures has been upgraded to take 65 watt bulbs. A total of 4 55 or 65 watt bulbs. The one filter was an ehime knock off that I bought years ago, and since I did not trust it, bought two. It has worked flawless for years. So, I have the matching one new in the box to go with it. The ehime 2229 filter alone is $330 bucks (now you know what I think of the $200 offer)

The SMS ph system was expensive, as was the spun aluminum 10lb tank.

I am not lying when I say I have some $$ invested here.

You will do better on here parting things out. Selling the filters, lights, co2, controller seperately on here will do well. Sell the tank locally, with stand for around 175-250.

Thanks. I would rather not do that due to the hassle factor. I would like to see someone get a great deal, and watch it all disappear in an afternoon.

Thanks for the compliment Jadenlea. You should have seen it in its heyday.

This is a beautiful setup! You should easily get $500 for it, if you can just find the right buyer. I've never had any luck on here with full setups. I usually sell the tank/stand/filter on Craigslist and try and part the more specialized equipment out but it is a big hassle so, I completely understand. Good luck with your sale!
