I'm looking to sell off my entire 385 gallon system which is full of many year old coral. I'd be happy to sell off the entire system, but am guessing it's more likely that I'll end up needing to sell all of the livestock first, then part out the system. Obviously the livestock will need to be sold before the equipment, but the way I have the system set up, each tank has it's own return pump, so could sell a whole frag tank and related coral without needing to empty out the entire system. Perfect for someone who wants a display that's got hug colonies of healthy coral, but doesn't want to wait a decade for it to grow or for someone who enjoys fragging and is looking for pieces that can make lots of frags right away. Anyone who's seen my display knows these are huge pieces, many of which won't even fit in a 5 gallon bucket.

There is even more that I don't have listed, too much to keep track of. A few other high end acros I got a year or so ago that have forgotten the names of.

All coral are very healthy and growing. I'm looking to take a break form the hobby to spend more time with my kids, and to free up some space in my house.

I'm just outside of Sewickley

Sorry for such a late reply! For some reason I wasn't getting notifications from R2R on this thread...

Sounds good, I still have the 30, but still need to move more coral out of it before I can let it go. Moving the coral has been a bit slow as I expected. Tougher to sell big colonies

Interested in a few of the orange zoa Frags. ( not up to date with all the names) Maybe I can meet up with you next week. I’ll get with you after Xmas.

I ended up finding someone that wanted to buy all of the zoas from me, so I mostly have SPS left, and a couple of LPS

Bit of a shame you’re taking a hiatus. I was hoping to do some more trading with you. Of course if it’s more of a chore than a hobby it’s the right move.

I can say for anyone interested in the system it’s a nice system and nice corals.

Did you already manage to sell off the white walker zoas?
Sorry for such a late reply! For some reason I wasn't getting notifications from R2R on this thread...

I had someone buy all of my zoas off of me, including the white walkers. Sorry

I appreciate the kind works about my system :) It's taken many years to get where it is. I agree it is a shame, for a long time I didn't understand how people could leave large systems after so much time and effort in getting them setup. I finally understand after having a couple of kids and an job that's grown more and more demanding I simply don't have the time to enjoy it. Right now I mostly just take care of the tank, but can't remember the last time I was able to sit and enjoy the tank for more than a few seconds. I'm going to start up a small 25 gallon tank, most likely without coral for me and my kids to enjoy on a much smaller scale.

Do you have any armor of god left? If so, can I see some pics? Thanks! Happy New Years!

I'm sorry, I sold all of my zoas, including the armor of god.

Hi, I do still have all of the fish. I'm hoping to try to move some more of the coral colonies from my main tank before going after the fish because I don't want to break all of the large coral apart trying to catch them.

I understand that all to well. I just broke a bunch of colonies trying to catch a file fish. If I had the room, I'd be interested in colonies. But keep me in mind when you're ready. I've been looking for a healthy blue and yellow tang for a while.

How big is the bristletooth tang?
About 4 inches or so. I'm still working on getting the coral moved first before fish though. Me and my family have been sick since around Christmas, so have been very slow to get back to people on the reefing stuff. Sorry about that.

Hey there, hope you and your family are feeling healthier again! Was wondering if you still had any corals available?

Thanks!
Hey, thank you. Not back to normal yet, but everyone is on the upswing, so I'm sure will all be good in a couple of days. I do still have alot of sps colonies left,and a handful of frags. I just got pictures of everything this evening I still have left, and plan on posting an update tomorrow. Ended up not having time today.

At this point you could just post the rest of your stuff up on Reeftrader for the Pittsburgh Marine Aquarium Expo. Would get a lot more eyes on it as the date gets closer and we are less than 2 months away
