Forsale Reef Salt Water Aquarium For SALE

Selling my Salt water Aquarium
It is a reef set up that has coral and fish that are very healthy. Setup for about 8 months and it is thriving. I go to School and am not home to care for it I do not have time anymore. I am selling the whole set up and everything used to maintain it. test kits, additives, tubes, food…..and a lot of other stuff.
(will not part out a single piece as it is currently running system so don’t ask!)



I am in no hurry to sell it and I want to sell it whole. Looking for a buyer who knows what he or she is doing and has done his or her research and can take care of the coral and the fish. Will personally help to take it apart and set up at your place if want help!

Livestock:

List of some major equipment:

- Marineland 300 skimmer rated for more than 150 gallon tanks
- Powerhead 800g/hour
- Rio450 return pump

- Chaetomorpha algae in one of the sumps
- Protein Skimmer rated for 150 gallons of water

Tank Specification and Stand

Everything to maintain and run the tank included and some extras

I tried to list everything to minimise confusion and questions, but there a lot of other stuff, I forgot to list. Lost track of how much I spent after the $1200 mark. (gave up counting) as mentioned above the tank is 8 months old and the live rock is covered with coralline (purple and red,….) it is mature enough that it is growing sps. (the digitata is growing like crazy)

Some additional notes:

- I use normal tap water and no fancy RO and have had no problems, do 10 gallon water changes, once a month, dose calcium and magnesium and iodine.
- Ammonia = 0
- Nitrates = 0
- Phosphates = close to zero
- Calcium = 430 ppm
- Feed once a day in the morning.
- When you look at the tank at night there are bugs everywhere indicative of life among the live rock and the maturity of the tank
- The sexy anemone shrimp hangs out on the purple hammer and feeds every time I feed the hammer
- You need to clean the skimmer cup every two days
- Top off the water that evaporated everyday (normal tap water that has been treated with Prime)
- I am not a store so I can’t have people come and go through my house unless you are a serious buyer.
- I will take as many pictures as you want and answer any questions you have.
- As mentioned before will help you take apart and set up the tank at your place if you don’t live far.
- It took a lot of time and effort to set to the current position now…

Selling the Whole System for $767, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I will try to answer questions as soon as possible. I have taken pictures and videos of everything I can and will post more pictures and videos upon request
If you want a specific picture of something, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
I am located in Mississauga near square one area. At the intersection of Hurontario and Burnhamthorpe.

I did price the whole thing but if it doesn't work out ill probably keep it and grow more corals and try again in the summer.
thanks for the advice

I must say, you are few of those who dare to say you use freshwater and no fancy RO system. Many will not agree that you use tap water. I too used to use tap water but due to the negative comments, I did buy a RO unit and follow the crowd..hahahahaha.
