  3. Is this a good deal? (Craigslist find)

    He was asking a question about a good deal. That was my explanation on how I view a good deal. Remember you have an agenda. You sell 50 gallon tanks for $1500. You're setting a precedent that tanks should run about that much. I don't have any agenda but giving my own opinion and my experiences. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Is this a good deal? (Craigslist find)

    Well sorry to offend I guess I come from SoCal. And last month I bought an acrylic 50 gall tank, stand, canopy , lights MH, pump , mag pump, sump, plumbing, light and live rock for $75. I do think it's realistic since I've gotten these deals. I worked with a lot of vendors down in SoCal and understand the true value at cost as well as when something is used. The question was asked and it was just how I spend my money. Last month someone sold a bunch of things for $300, would you have said it was ridiculous? Well it happened. I guess we all can't sell 50 gallon set ups for $1500. But I value all opinions. We are here to help one another not devalue input. Or I hope that is what this forum is about.

  5. Is this a good deal? (Craigslist find)

    How I like to see a good deal is: $1/gal depending on if it's drilled, tank stand (free with tank), equipment unless it's fairly new $20-$50 depending on what it is. Sump should be roughly $20. Sand should be free, live rock depending on lbs. $1-$2/lbs. Personally, I've purchased a 120 gallon tank and stand drilled, plumbing included, skimmer, 100 lbs of dry rock and sump for $175. Now the setup you are looking at does have an LED light, I would look at how much that cost by itself. Just giving you an idea what a good bargain is. If I were to buy a 40 bowfront I would expect to pay $40-$50 for tank and stand. I hope that helps. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  15. Create a nano tank

    Update: So I thought about it and I wanted to still figure this out. I managed to get my acrylic pieces from Tap Plastics and I silicones them. I created an overflow and return. I also stripped the glass and resiliconed the corners. Off of amazon, I bought $7 return pump 80gph and $8 airline pump for higher 02 as seahorses need more oxygen due to primitive gills. From Upscales, I got a return nozzle and attachment. I then added some live rock roughly 4 lbs in front and 2 lbs in back. I added some caulerpa, cleaner shrimp and 2 snails. Honestly I really wanted the feather caulerpa but this will do! Reached out to Algaebarn.com as they have helped me before with seeding tanks. I'll get a bunch pods and phyto from them. Teaching my niece and nephew about reefing. Buying decapsulated brine to hatch every other day to feed the captive bred dwarf seahorses from Dan and Abbey at Seahorsesource.com. The pods will keep them well fed though. Waiting for the nano ATO, light, and making a custom stand for it. Wish me luck! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  18. There is a way to train then to doing so. It takes work. The best part is it is done during the quarantine period. If you want details let me know. I've trained seahorses, pipefish, and mandarins to eat PE frozen mysis. Btw there is one spotted mandarin at seahorse aquarium. Terri I think has her. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  25. Drilling an established tank for a sump?

    TBH, that sounds dangerous, especially if it cracked and shattered all over your floor. 72 gallons of water. I vote for too dangerous. Especially for your inhabitants! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
