Do to a career change and traveling for new career, I am getting out of the hobby for now and selling everything. I want to see what you guys think of the pricing below. I won't start selling anything till all livestock and corals are out of the tank. The prices I gathered are based on new pricing and researching and seeing what used is selling/sold for. Everything is a year old or less as you can see. I do appreciate your help!

Equipment is usually 50% of retail, and for an AIO like Red Sea or Waterbox I'd suggest $2-3 per gallon for tank/stand/plumbing.

I refuse to pay more than 50% of the retail price for used equipment. Eventually I find the deal I'm looking for on used stuff.

I cant imagine that $3 per gallon applies to "all" RS or Waterbox tanks. I just paid nearly 6k for my Reefer-S 850. I would convert it into a giant shadowbox before selling it for $675. :rolling-on-the-floor-laughing:

I think imo your prices are good. Have you sold livestock yet? I am actively looking for a Queen Angel, with no luck!

Thanks! Most of livestock is sold except some corals and Blue Hippo Tang and a pair of clowns. I hope you find your Angel!
