As you know a couple members houses burnt down in the recent heat wave. Li, Brandon and I built a custom 120 and would like to donate it to the funds. 100% of the money will go to the speaker next year (as is the wishes of the victim's). If I may be so bold, this is a top notch tank worth more than the asking donation of $400.
The tank is fitted with an internal overflow (black 1/4" cast acrylic) with a huge surface skimming area but low on waisted tank space as the walls are set at 45 degree angles. The top is made out of a solid piece of 1/2" cast (along with the rest of the tank).
Pick up is in Bloomington. We will try to get pictures up tomorrow.
If you were looking for an excuse to make a donation as discussed in the private forums, this is the perfect opportunity. Even if you don't need the tank you could offer it back up for a raffle at the quarterly swap or maybe to the victim for a qt when the time comes to rebuild...Because you know he will
I have a precision marine CR422 calcium reactor (inc eheim pump), dual guage solenoid and CO2 bottle sitting here collecting dust. it is the exact package available from marine depot (for $632-including media currently full plus new half container)
it will also include sponges to contain the media and aqualifter pump and filter to feed the reactor.
i bought it from a local guy who got frustrated with it because of a leaky connection. he ran it all of a day-with no media-just trying to plumb it up. and its in PERFECT condition-that connection was repaired with weld on 42 so its good as new. since then we had it running for about a month...it's still almost new.
asking price is $350 (i'm depreciating it like a new car
-about a $300 savings for 1 months use-even though its in perfect condition)
all proceeds will go to the burning down the house fund to get a top notch speaker in here again next year...mike has been a great leader for this club and i was just sick hearing about his home...so this is in his honor.
