What price should I offer?

My co-worker has a sw tank that he broke down a few months ago and now he wants to sell it.

It's a 40 gallon glass tank w/ a 10 gallon sump setup (skimmer etc). He's not sure what the lighting is (he wasn't ever really into the tank-gf bought it for him). I've asked him to get a picture of it but I'm pretty sure it's a compact fixture.

It comes with a stand too.....what would you suggest that I offer for it?

Depending on the skimmer brand and pump brand.. $200-$250 would seem fair value

It's always easier, I think, to let them set a price point so you know what you have to work with; otherwise, you may be setting a bar that's more than what the other party expects.

A new 40g goes for around $80 and you can get a new 10g for around $15. Find out exactly what else comes with it and you can get a better idea on what to offer.

OH NOOOOO!! We hit the 4 figure mark today with the stinking boat so I think it's only fair that I have a small frag tank to console myself.

I'm re-naming that floating POS --- "money pit"......Oh, even better yet "money goes here"

Ask $115 and see what they say. Worst they can tell you is no lol. At least its a bargaining low so you can meet somewhere in the middle if he's willing to negotiate
