I'd leak test it first... If you're feeling generous, let me know and i'll pm you my address to ship it to me . If you actually want to sell it, you're looking at about 2-300 for the tank (if it doesn't leak), maybe more since it has overflows (this will of course depend on what tanks go for in your area... all these prices are what stuff like that goes for around here). The wet/dry filter is probably another $50-100. The pump could be worth alot, or nothing, that all depends on what kind it is and how many gph its rated for.

Little giant makes excellent pumps, mostly for ponds, commercial applications, etc. very good quality. The output varies. Great find, if i were close enough id buy it as well and pick it up. The freight would kill you.

I think you should keep the whole setup... but if you cant you cant. Seems like I've seen several people recommend against using wet/dry filters for sw, because they can lead to nitrate issues if not maintained properly.
