Old aquarium stuff in general. It would take me quite a while to list it all, although I might do so over coming weeks and post it, but it includes vintage tanks, filters (including some of the first HOB
power filters), air-pumps, backgrounds, gravel, decorations, magazines, books, catalogues, etc....basically anything aquarium-related from prior to 1970.
Speaking of which...although not quite as vintage as most of what I collect, I am looking for (for sentimental reasons) a LongLife brand brine shrimp hatchery from circa 1975...photo below (from an auction I didn't win)...if anyone spots one, please let me know.
