Alright, so I got a look at this tank yesterday. The glass is in great condition, there are a few chips on the back corner, but they're behind the enclosure for the drain (drilled in/out in bottom corner) so it's not under pressure. It's a oak trim tank with some pretty serious scuffs on the top plastic, he said there was probably something sitting on it. It comes with the glass hoods, 2 light fixtures (he said he had no problem growing corals), pine stand, 20g sump, 10g extra tank, RO
system, 25ft python, heaters, sump return pump, nets, chemicals - pretty much everything for $200.
Unbelievable! On top of that, he has a big SW
tank at his workplace that he has had serviced by 2 different non-big-box LFSs, neither of which has been very happy about, so I may get a customer out of the deal in my vision to start a business maintaining aquaria.
No the only problem I have is to figure out a may to move the sucker, and figure out a place to put it! Right now I'm reading "The complete idiot's guide to the saltwater aquarium" which is very informative, checked it out from the library but I think I might buy it.
So far, I think I'll have to get a protein skimmer, possibly make a hood for a better lighting setup instead of being locked into 2 strip lights, and a UV
sterilizer, unless he had one of those I didn't see.
My other options for this tank are 1) clean it up and sell it for more, or 2) discus tank.
