    Notes:
    Hi everyone,

    I'm shutting down my aquarium. I would have liked to keep the aquarium going, but right now I have another priorities demanding my attention (I've become a dad recently!). Maybe one day when he's older I start something up again.

    I also really have no idea on what to ask for these items. So any suggestions or offers are welcome.

    Some livestock has already been sold, but the following is still left:

    Fish:

    1 x Foxface R250 - he's huge, friendly and eats flakes and frozen shrimp, had him since I started up my tank 2 years ago
    1 x Cleaner Wrasse R200 - have not had the cleaner that long, only a few months, but he's healthy and eats frozen shrimp
    3 x Chromis R150 for all three - one large one and two smaller ones, they also eat flakes and frozen shrimp

    Corals:

    (These corals all come attached to quite large pieces of liverock)

    1 x Pincushion Leather Coral R250 excluding liverock, about the size of my hand. Attached to a long flat piece of fiji liverock

    Some liverock covered in polyps. R250 per kg + R50 for polyps.

    1 x Large rock covered in Xenia, I'll measure how long the liverock is. Also blue fiji if I remember correctly
    1 x Rock covered with mushrooms and a fanworm.

    I would need to take the pieces out of tank to weigh them, let me know if you want me to do that, or if you'd rather just we weigh them when you come to pick it up.

    Hi everyone,

    I updated the original post with some prices:

    1 x Foxface R250 - he's huge, friendly and eats flakes and frozen shrimp, had him since I started up my tank 2 years ago
    1 x Cleaner Wrasse R200 - have not had the cleaner that long, only a few months, but he's healthy and eats frozen shrimp
    3 x Chromis R150 for all three - one large one and two smaller ones, they also eat flakes and frozen shrimp

    Corals:

    (These corals all come attached to quite large pieces of liverock)

    1 x Pincushion Leather Coral R250 excluding liverock, about the size of my hand. Attached to a long flat piece of fiji liverock

    Some liverock covered in polyps. R250 per kg + R50 for polyps.

    1 x Large rock covered in Xenia, I'll measure how long the liverock is. Also blue fiji if I remember correctly
    1 x Rock covered with mushrooms and a fanworm.

    I would have to weigh the liverock - R250 per kg for the liverock, + R50 for the xenia attached to it.

    I'd prefer to keep the discussion on the forum, as per the rules.

    Mushrooms also R250 per kg + R50

    Frogspawn was already sold before I posted this, but I took the photos before he was sold, sorry :(
    Pincusion R250 + R250 per kg for the rock, but we can probably cut him off cleanly and he'll attach easily to another rock.

    R150 for all three

    The liverock without any corals on it I'm going to keep for when I start up the tank again.

    Hi there, I'll take everything in this picture. Can you confirm final price? You mention R250/kg of liverock +R50 for mushrooms.

    I'm sure there will be some Xenia left over after the rocks are sold, there's some growing on the back of the glass that you can get for free if you come collect it.

    I weighed that rock, didn't quite realize how big it is. It weighs 3Kg, which makes it quite expensive - and the Xenia, being filled with water, also contributes to the weight. Let me know if you're still interested in a rock this large - otherwise I'll take off the Xenia and keep the rock for when I start up a tank again.

    I did weigh some of the rocks, but this one I've not managed to get out, my tank is quite deep with the canopy hood and I can't reach it to lift it out without someone else to assist me in holding the hood.

    Apologies to everyone for not getting back to you sooner. I'm busy taking out all the rocks without polyps on them (I'm going to keep those when I start up a tank again), and will then take new photos of each of the polyp rocks individually with their weight.
