I'm sorry if I missed it digg, but when are you moving? The light you are talking about has a good bulb to grow out the Chaeto.

IMO if money and time are a concern to you I would not set up the 29. Either sell it or store it for the future. Isn't time to care for it what got you to this point in the first place?

yes spank your exactly right.. i think selling it would be just for the better.. i hate to go though all the trouble,time,money, for it just to be neglected again.. that wouldnt be right,,and waste of time..... and i know i have the time and money for the Pico's.. and im addicted to them ..lol... Welll im not moving at any particular time.. im just in the market ... if i sold it on here.. how would i go about shipping?? can you ship something like that.. being glass and all.....shot you a PM .

Yeah I 'm sure you could ship it if packaged correctly. Probably a eaiser bet to see if you can sell it locally like through Craigslist or a local reef club.

I agree with Henry....I would just part out the major parts and try and sell the tank locally. You can probably get some pretty good cash for the lighting and pumps and just sell the tank and stand separately.

 

Hate to see you sell it all but I'm glad you aren't leaving the hobby all together and sticking with Picos. You have a sweet one going right now and the other one sounds like it will be even cooler.

nnnnnoooooooooooooooooooooo........don't sell! You'll never get out of it what you have put in.

 

Pack it up and store it until you set up your 120 gallon. It would make the perfect quarantine tank or better yet a frag farm!

 

 

 

If you do have to sell I would try local pick up only. My local shop will take stuff on consignement..maybe that would be easier? Just hear of soo many tanks cracking during shipment even when in the original packaging.

What brand pico are you going to do this time? Or are you going to get a 3-5 gallon glass tank and do it that way? I'll be curious to see where you take this one.

Very nice....would look even better if it was rimless.

 

My dream tank is the 30 gallon or 18 gallon ADA rimless tanks. Just like the clean, sleek look. The Solana's also have that look that I like. Might be my next tank in the coming years :)

You'll be back...you'll be back :)

 

Hope you can sell it for a decent price man. Can't wait to see you back up at this size again sometime in the future. Guess you will just have to strap that Sunpod on the Pico B)
