    Its hard to sell a system all together unless you sell it ridiculously cheap, but then thats just a dead loss for you..You will sell it quicker if you sell everything off separately..

    Sorry to hear this man.. Hope you get back in the game later on

    Thanks so much for ur input bud !
    That'd be tough to swallow.

    hard to say but easy 15-20k at least. So not that many people are walking around with 20k to blow on a system.. What are the dimensions of the tank, what skimmer is it? TS4?

    the best thing to do is price each individual item and then get a total..Go on what you paid and factor a small % less for test kits opened etc... it will give you a better idea of what you paid.. im sure you have some kind of figure in mind but this will just help reasure you that it is reasonable to ask it..
