Might be having this setup for sale starting this weekend.

90 Gallon RR AGA tank.

80lbs Fiji dry/live rock.

80lbs pink Fiji live sand.

2- Korila 1050.

Bubble magus 150 skimmer.

30g DIY SUMP/refugium with live sand and live rock.

48"-4x54w current USA t5 ho light fixture with new bulbs.

24" 2x24w current USA light fixture for sump.

Black pine stand.

Ro/DI unit.

Refractometer.

Reef keeper lite.

And some food, test kits, And everything else I have for saltwater. Might have some ESV salt in a box too.

I decided to move and there's nowhere to put this system :-(. Its currently running at my old apt, so you can come take a look at it.
Ps: if it's bought by Sunday I'll throw in a brand new 9w uv sterilizer .
