Selling my buddy the tank and stand for $45 and he drives so saves me about $30 in gas. Pretty much $75 for a great condition 75 and stand for his male festae.

The asking price of everything total including the skimmer came to $290. If I sold these pieces all together (17 frags) it'd be $135

Well got a little bit of extra money so I think I'm gonna go out and get all the supplies to buff out these tanks.. I originally wasn't to worried about the scratches and imperfections but the more I think about it the more I feel like I might as well just do it now before I start kicking myself once they are fully stocked with beautiful coral that you can't see due to haze and scratches lol

Woah, I never knew anyone who buffed out their own tanks. Maybe it's easier than it sounds. Sounds video worthy!

It's just like buffing out a car just may require some low grit wet sanding for large scratches but honestly ill probably just worry about the medium to small scratches mainly since there are really only a couple deep scratches. Since these were used as frag tanks/ ray grow out tanks so not much to scratch em its mainly just haze from what I'm guessing is from cleaning the panes with dirty wipes.

Well braved the blizzard in the middle of the night to pick up a power sander, headlight restore kit, some extra 2000 grit sand paper, some extra plastX, and some microfiber towels lol. I might start tonight but if not ill start tomorrow so should have some shots up by tomorrow night.

Well go one more pane to do a final buff on and ill be done with 1!! The wet sanding is a lot of work on the fine grits but man seeing how its turning out its worth every minute of time I put in it. Tank is starting to look brand new but I'm gonna leave the back and bottom pane how it is since ill be painting them black.
