I'm changing things up and thought I would post my system up for sale. Here is the package (tank,stand, canopy, lighting, sump, closed loop, , if it doesn't sell I will part out. It will probably be 3-4 weeks before it is ready for pickup. Package price $750.

More pics and info can be found on my showcase (click on My Reef in my postbit).

Oceanic ~50 gallon (30x18x18 )
Drilled for overflow and drain (includes overflow box)

Stand: Oceanic w/stainless steel trim
Canopy: Custom built open canopy to match stand with stainless steel trim

250 watt double-end halide pendant on an Ice Cap ballast
4 HO-T5 actinics on a Work Horse 7 each bulb with individual reflectors...if I recall they are icecap reflectors.

Jim, that's the 'sweet little tank' I posted about in another thread. I loved that tank, and have been sorry I sold it a number of times. Of course then reality sets in and I realize that I can't actually maintain more than two tanks, so I'm not so sorry then. The glass on the Oceanics is so nice, clear and great color, and I love the styles of their stands too. That 'techie' look seems to suit you with all the stuff you do around here, maybe you want to think twice? ;)

The new tank will have its techy details too. :)

BTW are my other pictures in the first post showing up for anyone?

Still available???

It is...in fact it won't be "available" for a couple more weeks. Got to get the new tank cycled and move the live stock over.

hi Jim! have you decided to part out or not? I would be interested in the light, please let me know! Thanks! Sue

I'm still "cleaning" the tank, so haven't made a big push lately to sell.

How soon do you need a decission? Do you have the same tank as this?

no big hurry... i have a 60 cube but figured i could probably make it work(?)
I do have a light on my tank right now, so im thinking next week... you let me know! and how much were you looking to get for it? thanks!

Jim, let me know when it may be ready...

05-30-2010, 01:50 PM
yeap whole thing

I need to get the vinegar drained from it...if I wasn't so sick I'd do it right now. I caught the nastiest cold last weekend...been down for a week now. :cold_sick:

I plan to order a new oceans motions motor since the one that's there seems to be making odd noises and I also plan to order another fan for the canopy. So who ever gets it, everything should be working in great shape.

Tank is almost ready to go. Just ran the pumps with the tank full of vinegar water for 3 weeks...tank is looking sparkly. I have a little more cleaning to do on the sump, a new oceans motions motor is on the way, and a new fan for the canopy. Also a new piece of mesh will be installed in the top.

Whoever gets this system will end up with everything being "ship shape".

I'm also interested in the tank, sump, loop... Whatever I need to just fill with water and done.

How much for just that stuff?

This weekend would be a great time to come pick up the tank. :)

I have it totally cleaned. I will hopefully get the the new fan and oceans motions motor wired up tonight or tomorrow.

I also bought an extra fan which will come with the canopy as a backup. There one brand new still in the box actinic T5 that comes with it.
