    so im not sure if this will get closed or not but I need some assistance.
    im pretty much forced to sell my system due to recent things in my life. (smaller setup will be getting set up at some point in the future)
    I have no idea what to sell it for.
    I wont be selling it on here, it will be on my local site but im not sure where to start.
    any input?

    210g 84x24x24
    Stand
    bubble magus 220a skimmer couple months old
    mag 24 return pump
    40g sump
    40g refugium with 2 bulb t5ho.
    (3) full spectrum LED units.
    150 lbs live rock.
    maybe $200 in coral.

    I need to move this somewhat fast so the pricing has to be right once I post it.

    Add up what you think you've spent and cut that cost in half that would be a good starting point for price of the system...it's always tough to get back what you've spent.

    I would be at about $1500
    forgot to add wp60s with dual controller.
    is that a reasonable price?

    I'd start at $2,000 and plan to drop price at negotiations start. I bought my 300DD starphire glass set up for $1200 without the fancy controllers if that helps.. Might be interested in that Mag24 also!

    sucks you have to sell.

    Ive found it very hard to sell a used fish tank. If you need to the money and need to sell Id go lower than what you think its worth. Hard to find people. Just IMO

    Clean it up best you can, get high quality photos. Maybe take some high quality photos of it with livestock. Photos will help you sell it. Good luck.
