How to stop..

Any thoughts?
My tank has been for sale for over 6 months and did not sell.(the highest offer was $100.00)=not gonna happen. We have a new baby, and we do not have the time to care for it..

Can i just sell all the animals ,drain the tank and store it in my garage till a later time when i think i might have the time to do it again?
I know the rock and sand will die, but i can re-use the rock.

Sell it piece by piece. Post it on Craigslist with a short and sweet message plus pics. Say "this alone costs $100", but be fair with pricing. If you aquarium forum for your city post it there. You could save lighting and plumbing and maybe upgrade later .

You can keep the rocks if you don't get a good offer. But I would at least give the corals away. I didn't see any fish.

I have had to shut my tanks down before and I store the tank upside down over all the equipment. Keeps things drier and less dusty. Let the rocks dry really well so they don't get moldy.
