Hi! I'm in Nashville, getting rid of my tank because lack of time to maintain it. It's 13.5g, needs a little cleaning from algae.
Has over 15lbs of live rock, fully established. Elegance coral, duncan coral, and all of the powerhead/ filter uitilities. Aswell as one lonely lil Banggai cardinalfish.

I am really desperate to get out of my house, I just need it out. I was going to sell it for $300 but I don't have much time and willing to give it away as low as whatever you offer. I'll include all of the cleaning utensils, food, reef roids, nutrient supplements, testing kit I have etc. Please just take the system from me lol I don't want to harm the inhabitants because I don't have the time to put into it. Thank you !

I'll be downtown tomorrow and can help. Have to see it but I have cash as well. If things dont work with John for tomorrow let me know. 615-587-9684. Maybe even get you some cash after the fact as I know a few folks looking for inhabitants.

John,

I have lots of experience with large tanks (2x230 sitting dry downstairs right now) I may even have a few things lying around that can help you.

Oh hell yes. Playing with the big boys is actually easier in the long run. Plumbing, adjustments, and lighting are key. Once the tank's established, much slower swings than the small tanks. My number is in the post to dandoolzed so anytime after 5pm tomorrow give a shout. I also have a bunch of supplies.... Including full controllers.

Thanks Daniel! I got the tank all cleaned, the corals are mostly algea free and rehomed. Scrubbed the rock. A few nice pieces there. They are in with my other rock baking now to get rid of the Phosphates and Nitrates that were in them. I may use this for a seahorse thank or somehing of the like.
