90 gallon high marine system needs a home

    I have been running a 90 gallon high marine system for the past 15 years. I retire next year and am moving to California, and I need a clean start, equipment-wise. Up here in Laramie Wyoming I am out of the mainstream of the Colorado marine aquarist world, so its been a challenge. My system is a high tank 90 gallon with a 29 gallon equipment tank in the basement. I've been letting my tank expire: right now I only have a blue tang and an oscellaris clownfish. I have a custom top to my cabinet and an LED system (American Aquarium Products Aquaray LED's). There's a lot of supporting equipment that I can list in private emails, but my basic idea is (1) I need to find a home for my tank, (2) I'm not trying to make a profit- any best offer is fine.

    So, if anyone is interested in the equipment, let me know.

    Sorry, here are the photos. The tank has devolved to mainly star polyps and soft green coral and lots of mushrooms. I learned a lesson: stay away from star polyps, even if you isolate them on coral islands. I had a nice collection of zoanthids at on point, but the darn star plaque migrated and overtook them. The secondary tank is in the basement, with protein skimmer (Euro Reef CS6-1 ), a My Reef Creations calcium reactor, SpectraPure Litermeter III, SpectraPure 60 gal RO system, and a Energy Bar 8 controller system. The tank cabinet is Modern Series All-Glass model that I built a new top for to accomodate the lighting system. Here are various pics:

    Your tank looks fantastic. I'm sure it will sell quickly

    That isn't an energy bar 8 controller system. It is a Neptune Apex Lite.

    Oops, I was looking at manuals to remind me what I had and listed the wrong one. The energy bar is something extra not the controller

    Do you have any details on the calcium reactor, like a model number or anything? Would you part that out of the entire system?

    I'll have to check the model number on the Calcium reactor. As far as selling the parts piecemeal, I was kind of hoping someone would want to take the 90 gallon tank, tank cabinet, and tank contents (the live rock and critters) together, and if they don't want the supporting equipment I could sell or give those away separately. If I give/sell the components piecemeal, I would have the problem of keeping my tank up and running... My poor blue tang and clown would be eviction refugees. I know the tank and cabinet is a large item and a hassle to deal with. I will wait and see if anyone wants the tank/cabinet/critters first; if someone wants critters, they can have those first.

    I would be interested in the critters and mushrooms. Do you have a price? I sent you a PM.

    It's a module that comes standard with the controller. The apex lite is what actually does the controlling.

    Generally if you want to sell things separate it's a good idea to start with rock and corals. Then sell the fish, and once they are out, then sell the rest. That way you aren't stuck trying to keep a tank running without its supporting equipment.
