Familiar story, I’m downsizing to a smaller freshwater tank due to $$$$. So I’m selling my 125 gallon reef tank ‘as-is’, pickup only. I’ve got no desire to sell individual components, so it’s a package deal.

· 300 watt heater
· All bulkheads, pipes, hoses, etc, currently in use.
· MISC – floating hydrometer; three 16” 100 micron filter bags; half of a 5gallon bucket of calcium chloride (Dow mini-pellets repackaged as ‘Quick-Joe ice melter) (used in Randy’s two-part); 5 gallon bucket of Mag Flake (used in Randy’s two-part); What’s left of a Salifert alk test kit (not much), what’s left of a Salifert calcium test kit (about 2/3’s).

Here’s website I had started with some info on the setup, including some construction pictures (the pics are a bit old.):

For some reason I can't post images, so click on the links to view pictures...

125 gallon AGA reef-ready tank
3 years old, no leaks. A single sheet of white acrylic, cut to size, is siliconed onto the bottom of the tank for protection. There are some spots where the sand has hardened, but can easily be scraped off the acrylic. Tank has two holes drilled in it’s back for 1.5” closed loop inputs. There is one scratch on the inside front of the glass that’s about 2 inches long, and a few other smaller scratches that you don't notice unless you're looking for them. Back is painted black. Stock AGA stand.

DIY canopy w/T5HO and integrated closed loop manifold return.
Closed loop return manifold is integrated into the canopy. 4 fans for cooling, one of the fans isn’t working, but that’s cheap and easy to replace. Lighting is six 80 watt T5HO bulbs with individual reflectors overdriven by two Icecap 660 ballasts, includes the two heatsinks. This bulbs are mounted in the DIY canopy, the ballasts are mounted to the wall behind the tank. Ballasts are 1.5 years old. Bulbs are two months old:

1 - 80W [/FONT]ATI 12000K Aquablue Special T5 HO Fluorescent
3 - 80W
ATI Blue Plus T5 HO Fluorescent
1 - 80W
ATI True Actinic 03 T5 HO Fluorescent
1 - 80W GE 3000K Daylight T5 HO Fluorescent

1 extra unused GE 6500k bulb included. 3 adjustable moonlights. Check out http://s91977220.onlinehome.us/2.html for details on the canopy/return manifold/moonlights.

30 gallon sump, ASM G3 skimmer
Mag 7.5 return pump. Sump was an Oceanic Model 2 that I modified to have a bubble tower, a skimmer section, 3 baffles, and a return section. ASM G3 is 1.5 years old, with gate valve mod and mesh wheel mod.

16 gallon remote fuge.
DIY cabinet for the fuge, Aqualight fixture with Double Lamps for Freshwater - 2 x 9W - Mini - 9 in. Light fixture was dropped, and has decent cracks/chips/superglue, but still works. About two weeks ago I completely cleaned out the fuge, that’s why it’s so clean. I made the cabinet a bit shorter than it needed to be, so I whipped up an ugly stand for it to sit on, so the water would flow correctly. If you buy this, feel free to straighten out the plumbing.

Auto top off system.
