Hi all,

Been a long time since I have popped in here. Due to some life changes (2yr old and 5mo old + an impending move this year) I have decided that I am going to be shutting down my tank for now. With my kids taking most of my time now it hasn't received the sort of love it deserves. I recently had a major algae outbreak and I just don't have the time to try to fight it off especially considering a move this year.

I will need to sell all of the livestock first and then I will start selling off all of the equipment. I am out of touch with what a fair price is for many of these items -- but I am hoping that they are priced aggressively for a quick sale. My goal is to have everything out of the house sometime before March. Let me know if you feel I am off on prices.

If anyone is interested in buying everything as a package, I would give a flat discount on everything, maybe something like 30% off.

Because there is so much I have put everything in a google sheet here:

I will work on getting pictures up of most things sometime this week. Wanted to get this posted to see what kind of interest there is.

Happy New Year!

Darn it- we are 6.5hrs apart. I'd take it all. Problem is, my work schedule. . . we are very short handed and I promised to be available during January for sure. I mean, id take 'em all

Yes! Thanks @bkhunt I just remembered that I needed to come back and update this post. I accepted an offer from someone who was interested in purchasing everything as a package everything is sold at this point.

Thank you all for your interest and I hope to one day have an excuse to be back on this forum! Until then, may your testing always give you the numbers you want...
