    hi guys,

    i am seriously considering selling off my complete setup...
    this is not a REAL for sale thread so please do not post here asking for things.

    i am looking to see if anyone would be interested in purchasing my full system lock stock.
    thats full tank, everything inside (livestock), lights, chiller etc

    the reason i am looking to sell is because i believe that my tank is taking up to much of my attention and i need now to focus on my studies this year as they are really stepping up a gear..

    so please guys, i am looking for anyone who may be interested in purchasing the full system in the future

    the time period being anytime within this year...

    if no one shows interest i will carry on running the tank and take a second decision to sell it off in pieces probably at the end of this year or the beginning of next year..

    Regards keith

    i'm not to sure on price just yet...
    basically, if someone is sufficiently interested in the tank i will do some costing and work out a good discounted rate for buying the full system.

    the system is a 800 by 800 by 600 high cube.
    just shy on 400L

    but with the sump it is over 500L

    i will post a full description of the tank 2mrw after i have written a few tests for uni.

    as for saturday, i will probably be around from 11 onwards.. i do have a birthday to get to later on but that shouldnt be an issue..

    i really have no idea..
    i can tell you i have spend R30000 to R35000 on this system..
    my guess is that its sales value will be around R20000
    but a more accurate price will be available once i have cost everything..

    the major cost in this tank is the corals..
    i have 4 clams, 11 or so different types of SPS. including blue millies. green millies.
    both pink and blue birds nests.. a real beaut of a green monti colony..
    tons of SPS and softies etc...

    ofcourse you dont want to sell livestock and tank together, right ? and easy way to work out a price on equipment is to add everything together and divide by 2 :p

    no rush to sell... i am just seeing what interest is out there and maybe lining up a buyer for in the future... i will most likely end up selling this tank at the end of the year...
    i just know that selling a complete setup takes time so i am planning ahead to allow for people to discuss and plan.
