Just don't have time to care for it any more. I am kind of back and forth on selling it. So i think I will be pretty set the price I want and if I don't get it I am fine with keeping it. If I keep it I may switch and get one big fish. Like an Oscar or something.

I have 1 year old twins and a 5 year old daughter. Things aren't going to slow down.

I was going to buy a background for my new classroom Tank. But after seeing yours, I'm going to have my students draw it.

Depends on your local market...where I'm at, I would probably have trouble giving it away, so would have to resort to shipping which would drastically lower what people would pay due to cost of shipping the larger items.


So, in my little world I would price everything independently...allowing for shipping of all items except tank and stand.


I think a total of $150 is painful to hear, but a pretty fair and safe bet...the market for these types of used items is fairly flooded (lot's of people get in over there heads).

Sold it. I put down $300 or best offer because I didn't want to be low balled. But the person paid full asking price and didn't bat an eye so. Win for me I guess. Even know now that its sold I am kind regretting selling it. Lol.

Good stuff! Im the same way. I cant stand when people try to talk me down. I had some buy a tank and stand off me years ago. The setup had the whole works and i was only selling it for 145. The guy came and picked it up, got it all in his vehicle and then said, "****, i guess i only brought $100." I let it go but learned that i get money first before they get the product!
