24 gallon aquapod and corals/inhabitants for sale w/pics


Recommended Posts

I’m getting out of the reef hobby and selling my stuff. I have a nice, healthy, not rotting tank (before I got this tank, I visited a few homes where people were trying to sell their smelly, neglected tanks. Embarrasing). The only disclaimer is that I have green turf algae that I can’t kick. It came with my original live rock. Some think it’s ugly, some think it’s pretty, you be the judge. I just have lost interest.


My tank has been going for 18 months. I’ve modified it (see below), and I’m very proud of that. It provides plenty of light, with no overheating worries, even for SPS. It’s a solid, established tank. Maintenance is pretty easy: Top off the aquarium in the morning and evening. 50% water changes every 2 weeks (I’ve slipped lately, but just did one today). “Filtration” is just a sponge, refugarium, carbon media and live rock rubble. I broadcast feed mysis shrimp and cyclopeeze couple times a week (definitely, a few corals would like more).


I’m asking $500 for the whole shebang. If that doesn’t happen after a couple weeks, I’m willing to parse things out. So, you can make your offers now on individual stuff, but I won’t get back to you for a couple weeks.

Dibs on both of the cup corals, the yellow and the pink, as well as the Pink monit.(depending on your location, within 20 miles or so of Beaverton I'm intrested, and of course price)


The pictures aren't working for me.


We'll talk money if you decide to part out.


Good Luck.
