    Default Tank take-down

    Well, I unfortunately have to take down my 120G aquarium system. I joined the US Marine Corps and over the past 3 months completed recruit training at Parris Island, SC. Over these 3 months, my mom has been taking care of my tank, and despite my relentless efforts to make it run on auto-pilot, too many problems arose and it ended up being too much work for her. So bottom-line, I gotta get rid of this thing, as it cant exactly travel the world with me. I have 2 weeks to get rid of it, so lets see how this goes. As soon as I get rid of the livestock (check my other thread), I will be dismantling the system.

    Equipment and Prices As Listed: $1750 for the whole system

    -120 Gallon Display Tank - $300 (purchased used in March 2011) (few scratches)
    --Dual Corner Overflows, bottom drilled (return and send on each side) 1 inch ret 3/4 inch send (i think).
    --Stand and Canopy (I also have a 1 ft riser platform that I dont use, but is included in the sale)
    -Sunlight Supply 250w dual HQI electronic galaxy ballast (purchased new in Sep 2011) - $100
    -Two 250w HQI Reflectors with 12k hamilton tech lamps approx 4 months old - $75
    -55 G sump $45
    --Return, center, and send baffles
    --fits underneath tank
    -29 Gallon Fuge $10
    --3/4 inch bulkhead approx 4" above bottom of tank on side of tank (small crack by bulkhead, but does not leak)
    --comes with homemade durso standpipe
    --has furnished stand that came with tank and 2ft riser stand
    -Coralife 220g protein skimmer $100
    -Apex Lite (4 months old) $300
    --Display module, EB8, Temp probe, base unit, homemade breakout box (terminal screw posts)
    EB8 SOLD
    -PM2 and conductivity probe (comes with one 53.0mS calibration packet) $170 (4 months old)
    -WXM $95
    -MP40w (not the ES driver) (about 3 years old-new wetside assembly 1 year ago) $300
    -Mag18 Pump -$60 (3 years old)
    -Mag2 Pump -$30 (4 months old) (i have 4 of them)
    -Mag3 pump -$40 (4 months old)
    -Fluval 304 -$50 (2 years old)
    -(5) iFloat float switches (with pvc wall mounts) - $6 each
    -150w titanium heater -$15
    -Spectrapure RO/DI MaxCapp water system - $210 (5 months old)

    Thats it i think.

    Free stuff if you buy something
    -2 brute trash cans with home made bulkheads (they dont leak) (1/2" pvc)
    -random plumbing pieces from when i take it apart (pvc and 1/2 tubing stuff - see pics)

    I'll post pictures of everything tomorrow. I cant sell anything until I get rid of the live stock.

    All the equipment has its purchase dates, so you can use that base things on wear and tear. I take really good care of my equipment, and the apex stuff is practically brand new. All this stuff has served me well, and I hate to see it go, but its gotta. So let me know if you have any questions, want to see something, Im on leave until Feb 5. So if its not gone by then, its going into storage. Make an offer and I'll think about it, no low balls, esp on the stuff thats new. I priced it all pretty fairly i think.

    sump tank dimensions are 48"x18"x12" (WxHxD), so it might be tight.
