I work for a large heavy hauling company in Milwaukee and we were recently hired to remove a very large acrylic tank from a medical office. It's been sitting in our warehouse since July and we finally received permission to sell it as they don't want to continue paying storage fees. I'd like to sell this as a complete package if at all possible and figured this is a good spot to do it as we have never dealt in something like this before but being a reefer I know there's some out there who always wanted a huge tank.
The tank is roughly 12' x 3' x 3' with 1.5" acrylic walls, which I calc'd out to be roughly 670 gallons. It appears to me, based on the equipment, that it was setup as a FO or possibly a FOWLR
tank; I'm leaning towards FO as there was no LR
shipped with it to our facility but maybe he sold that off with the livestock.
The entire package includes the tank and the following:
Stand with attached working platform.
Nova Wet/Dry Sump (~150 Gallon, 2' x 2' x 5')
5 Large Coral Pillars in tank (Some drilled/screened for overflows. Standpipes are laying down in tank)
2 Baldor 1/4HP Pumps & associated PVC plumbing
Koldwave Chiller with Arctica controller UV
Two 40" tall Deltec skimmers (one might be a reactor, it's in a tub and I haven't pulled it out to look).
2 hanging lighting fixtures with cooling fans
Spectrapure RO/DI w/ TDS meter
Pentair Clean & Clear cartridge filter
3 Rubbermaid tubs full of miscellaneous stuff (including some coral rubble pieces, cleaning supplies, and 1 or 2 of the tubs are plumbed with ATO float valves for using them as salt water mixing vats)
Small plastic utility sink.
Minor cleaning items (long handle squeegee, etc)
There's probably minor sundry items that I didn't notice in the tubs and stand too.
As I didn't design the system or ever interact with it, I don't know much about the individual pieces (model numbers, etc) unless they're clearly marked. My understanding is that it was in good working order upon disassembly.
Pictures are here
As we are machinery movers we can load it up for the buyer for free if they either come with a large trailer or hire someone to haul it. We also could be hired to haul it ourselves, but honestly we're more expensive in that regard than most carriers for this type of object.
If you'd like more information/pictures feel free to post a request here and I'll try to accommodate. The tank is also viewable upon request during the day (roughly 8AM - 3PM), we're located about a mile and a half from Miller Park for those of you who are near Milwaukee.
If you'd like to see a video with narration provided by yours truly (we spared no expense) see this:
Please bear in mind that when fully loaded this behemoth will weigh in at over 4.25 ton, excluding water in the piping and any accessories you keep near the stand.
My boss is will to negotiate pricing if you come in with a reasonable offer. Before you ask what's "reasonable", I didn't get a direct answer out of him, but a little digging online shows a new tank this size with overflows, metal stand (without the working platform like this one has), etc etc runs in the ballpark of 13-15k plus shipping. The sump you can get from glasscages (ignoring quality, just using them for a rough price) for $1395 plus shipping. So figure that, plus the RO/DI, skimmer. lighting, chiller, pumps, all the other equipment listed, etc and you're probably sitting around 20-24k new for the whole package delivered. So, mark it down since it's used equipment and you can probably make a reasonable approach. I listed this as $18,000 just to be in the ballpark.
*Update* Asking price now $13000. Still willing to negotiate.
