    Default Selling my stuff, top of the line equipment

    After much deliberation I have to decided to sell all of my personal equipment. Running the store has taken away the "hobby" for me, so I need a new one. I am NOT selling any livestock, I have moved all of it to the shop where I can still enjoy them. I will ship the smaller items at the buyers expense, the skimmer will have to be discussed as to shipping method and insurance.

    All that being said, here is a list and prices of the products I want to sell:

    Vortec MP-40 Gen 2 pumps x2 and a battery backup. One pump is just over a year old, the other about 18 months old. However they have been sitting dry since February and are both in EXCELLENT condition. If you buy all 3, $650. If you want 1 pump, $325 and the battery backup is $75. (I only have 1 cord to connect 1 pump to the back up.)

    There are tons of pictures of these pumps all over the place, I think we all know what they look like by now.

    DIY Light fixture, and 4 Sunlifts- $300. I made this myself, it used to have an IceCap 660 and a 430 in it, but now has a 430 and 2 Universal brand Accu-start ballasts. It drives 6 bulbs, and has 2 fans built in for cooling. It measures 48x17.5" so fits perfectly over a 48x18 tank. The bulbs and reflectors have less then 3 months on them, and I have more bulbs to go with it as spares. Currently the fixture is loaded with 4x Blue + and 2x Aquablue Specials.

    Warner Marine K-2 Cone Skimmer, this is BY FAR the BEST skimmer I have ever owned. It pulls over 1000LPH of air and consumes only 21W of power. It is rated for 300 gallons, but I think you could go even higher with it. Make sure you plug your nose when you clean the cup, as it is very possible to gag on the smell. It retails for $799, I am looking for $500. Here are some images of it in operation, good thing you can't SMELL it from there....

    EWW!!!!!

    Aqua Ultraviolet 57W unit with 2" in and Out. You can move 1066GPH through this unit and kill C. Irritans (Ick)! It is a BEAST! $150

    Bulb is rated for 14 months, and it has about 6-8 months of use on it. Quartz Sleeve is BRAND New!

    Reefkeeper Lite L3- $180 I have 2 PC4's and a SL1, but no pH probe. Works like a charm, very easy to use, very easy to set up.
    549593651 XRPhE M - Selling my stuff, top of the line equipment

    Monster DIY Ca Reactor, holds 50 POUNDS of media - $150 for reactor alone.

    10 pound CO2 tank, $40

    Milwaukee CO2 controller $50. (Needs new probe.)

    I have many other odds and ends too, if you don't see what you need here shoot me a PM or post here.

    I am NOT leaving the hobby for good, just need a break from it at home! I am still going to be around, and at the store to help out whenever and whoever I can!

    Thanks for the kind words Chris, I'll be around that is for sure!

    Jim that backup had a lot of traffic! I must have priced it to low.... :D There are about three other folks that want it too.

    Only thing left is the Controller at this point. :D
