My daughter's boyfriend has run into an unexpected (aren't they all)financial hardship and needs to sell his tanks. Right now these are complete system sales so no parts dibs yet. I'll let you know if it changes.

The first sytem has only been set up for a month and is all new equipment. He had just set up a 220gal glass, duel overflow shark tank. My daughter tells me that he spent about $7000 on it and will sell it for $3999 all included. I do not have all the details on the equipment yet. I was not involved in the purchase or set up. He bought the system complete at Wet World as a shark tank. My daughter is going to get me the complete list of what is in it and I will post the details when I have it. Here are pictures of it (of course).

The other tank is a 55g glass reef tank. The tank is 2 years old and has a factory center overflow. The stand was purchased ar the same time and the hood is the custom oak one I use to have on my old 55g. the tank has been neglected so there is a lot of hair algae, but the corals and fish look like they are doing fine. All of the fish have been in there over a year. The hood has 2 250watt halides and 2 pc's. The return pump is a mag 12. This set up is $850 and here are the pictures.

He also has some parts. A 50g holding tank that is unused. I'll let you know the price when I get the details. A RO system from airwaterice.com for $100 (but you'll have to wait for the tanks to sell), and an unused wet/dry. (price to come when I get the details). Here are the pictures

Will do. I just asked my daughter last night. She needs to get a copy of the invoice to find out what he paid.

Sorry about the delay posting the item breakdown. Wet World is being a pain. My daughter called them and asked for a reprint of the invoice, and he says sure, but not for you. Since my daughter's boyfriend is the one on the order he won't give her a copy and unfortunately he's not around to go get it. She's going to try again when someone else is working.

WOW Very impressive system. At that price who could pass that up being a month or two old.
