I have been looking for an aquarium. I do not have too much experience with them but I have started doing some reading and I'm trying to learn as much as possible. Although I think that it will be nice to start my own aquarium, I have found that it would cost me more that if I buy an established one. I welcome any thoughts on this as well. I found this listing and I wanted to know if there is any advise. I am planning on offering $600 for the following: ***listing*** Serious inquiries only. I've got almost $3K worth of stuff here so for $1000 obo you can have an established (2 years old) 55 gallon aquarium. You can take this home and literally have a reef aquarium Corals, Fish, Rocks, Sand, Water, etc. It comes with EVERYTHING, will not split up. I've already sold the corals/fish that I wished to sell separately. Live stock includes 2 Ocellaris Clownfish, anemone, snails, hermit crabs, emerald crabs, conchs. Also has numerous coral such as mushrooms, palys, zoas, leathers, frogspawn, gsps. Tank has 50lbs of live rock, 40 lbs live sand. If you were to buy all this livestock alone you'd spend well over $800. Here's what the hardware would cost new. 55 gallon AGA Tank w/Stand $300 (not drilled for overflow) Coralife Lunar Aqualight HO T5 Aquarium Light Fixture $250 Reef Octopus BH1000 HOB Protein Skimmer $189 CPR Aquatics AquaFuge External Hang-On Refugium Large $159 Hydor Koralia Evolution 850 powerheads x 2 $60 Eheim Jager Heaters 150 and 75 $60 Extras: 10 gallon tank w/ Blue damsel, Assorted snails, hermit crabs, 5# live rock and sand, Hagen aqua clear filter, marine land led hood 10 gallon Hospital tank 4- 5 gallon water containers 4 brand new True Lumen T5 Bulbs 2 white, 1 blue, 1 purple Assorted frozen and dry food, chemicals, test kits, nets, etc. **what do you guys think??
