I cleared out my saltwater and sold the last two corals, both coral banded shrimp, the cleaner shrimp, a full grown engineer goby, a yellow coris wrasse, a short spine urchin, two snails, and a hermit crab to my friend for half price and a discount of $20 due to the fact the gave me some fish and got $69 out of selling that stuff. Next I went to my LFS, Triad Reef Critters, sold them two ocellaris clownfish, my last green chromis, a long fin fairy wrasse, four guppies, two giant danios, and 40-50lbs of liverock for $35. Now all I have is sand and water in the tank which will be cleared out today. I am also going to clean up both 10 gallons and pray to God that I don't accidentally grab the missing dead betta. I also bought a Marineland Precision Submersible Heater for one 10 gallon, a Marineland Bio-wheel Penguin 100 Filter for the same 10 gallon, and finally I bought a 425gph Koralia Circulation and Wave Pump for my 10 gallon rapids tank. Now I have $1.10 left out of $104.

And why take $35 from the LFS for all of that. That's a terrible deal. The rock alone is at least $50 at $1/pound

I don't have a job yet and it is hard for me to keep the tank very healthy so I am turning it into a 55 gallon planted tank with nano fish and shrimp.

FishieKeeper429 05-02-2015 05:38 PM

Good luck! I hope it all goes well :)

The LFS doesn't normally take live rock back but they did make and exception this one time and I really don't mind the price I'm just glad that my fish are in a much better tank. The LFS is a really good store with great prices and lots of fish coral and equipment. Can take a video and post it the next time I go.

Thank you, it will most likely go well today if I don't grab the dead betta.

I just think craigslist could have given you a better deal than them

I really didn't want to post it on craigslist because I didn't want 40-50lbs of rock sitting an empty tank. Here is the link to the LFS

I would have gave u 75 or 80 for that. You could have got a lot more for that

Ok, I will learn from my mistake and post it on craigslist next time and find a better deal.

Emerald, that's so cool! I wish I had a bran with cows, chickens and goats, and most of all a chinchilla! And of course a space for some goldfish breeding pairs.....

That's for the saltwater to you are turning to freshwater? How many gallons is it again?
