  1. [ATTACH]11554[/ATTACH][ATTACH]11555[/ATTACH]150+ lbs live rock & lots of sand $250.00 I wanted it all gone last year![ATTACH]11554[/ATTACH][ATTACH]11555[/ATTACH]
  2. Rock and sand $250. That is less than $1.75 / lb for the rock. Take it all. That way I can shut down the tank
  3. Tank is also drilled with a 1 1/2" overflow! Tank is also drilled with a 1 1/2" overflow. I have it "cocked" to lower the water level in the tank. Took out the skimmer to clean it. The little tube worms are everywhere!
  4. This is an excellent deal for someone wanting to get into the reef/coral hobby. I have been keeping this tank alive for the last 4 years with the intent of getting back in the hobby. Unfortunately, where I live now the power will go out for a couple of weeks at a time, I go through 2 sets of RO/DI filters a year (terrible well water) and I do not have the time to maintain. This tank was sold to me as a 90 gallon tank. However, the measurements suggest a 75 gallon tank. The tank is drilled with a 2" overflow. It has a glass 29 gallon sump. It includes the light hood with 2 spider light reflectors with 2 - 250W icecap halides. 2-VHO Actinic and the stand. It also includes the protein skimmer, D & D "Beast". The stand needs some work from some water damage (cosmetic) and one of the Icecap ballasts is not working, about $65 to repair the ballast. There is about 150 lbs (more like 200+ lbs) of live rock and 100 lbs of live sand. As you can see from the photos, maintenance is needed. However, the rock has a lot of sponges and tube worms. I am about 15 minutes from Albany and 20 minutes from Corvallis. This is a complete unit. I am including 2 UV sterilizers (need new bulbs) and all of my miscellaneous reef equipment, pumps, spare bulbs (used), etc. I feel that $400.00 is a fair price for everything. Live rock at $3.00 a pound would cost more than the whole unit!
  5. Great deal for someone to purchase just the live rock and sand. Thanks, Bill
  6. Yes, I thought the price was fair. Was hoping to get this gone before I leave for a few weeks. Wish I could just sit at home and play...

  8. Anybody even interested in the rock & sand? can always get rid of the tank & equipment.
  9. Our club, Heart of the Valley Homebrewers [hotv (dot) org], is based out of Albany & Corvallis. Competition is this Friday PM and Saturday AM in Albany. You could come and judge if you wish. Check out Cascade Brewers in Eugene. We teach and hold an exam for Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) every year. Lots of drinking DOH! um... studying...tasting... to configure your palette. Lots of other beer style knowledge to learn also. Looks like you are using a manifold in a cooler for your mash tun and a immersion chiller. Did that for years and it works great. Esters can be from a variety of things, yeast being the largest. Most ales keep you fem. temp between 60 and 64F. Oxygenate and shake the carboys twice a day for the first 2 days to keep the yeast in suspension. that alone will really clean up your flavors. I am managing the club brew days at Rogue Chatoe and we will be brewing there again in about 3-4 weeks. Let me know and you can come and party help.
  10. Cool Miles! What does you brewery setup look like now? You were just starting when I was last active in the club. You did not enter any beers in our homebrew competition coming up this weekend so I will be unable to taste... When should we get together and swap beers?
  11. I mistakenly stated that the light hood has 4 40w Actinics. It has 2 VHO Actinics with waterproof end caps and working ballast. Sorry for the mistake. Bill
  12. Skimmer specs The skimmer that comes with the tank is a D & D Marine Aquatics Venturi "Beast". It was purchased in 2002 and I used it on my 240 with no problem. D & D claims that it is good for 300 gallons, 200 gallon reef. I currently do not have a pump for the skimmer. It has been repaired but is water tight and fully functional. It has no collection cup but drains into another container such as a milk jug. Thanks
  13. Hate to part with it the tank but life is full of changes. Have a huge protein skimmer, the pumps and heater included. Did you want the Calcium reactor that I have? You mentioned wanting it a while ago... PM me off line.
