    In a month or too I'll probably sell my 10g FW tank for money to set up a 29 planted. How do I sell a tank with fish and stuff in it? Do I sell the fish off then the Equiptment? Also, whats a good price to list on Craigslist for...

    Ten gallon tank
    Gravel
    Decorations
    Airstone
    Aquaclear 20
    Top fin 75w heater
    2 bloodfin tetras
    5 neon tetras
    1 yo yo loach

    Thanks:)

    Put it on Craigslist as a running tank. In all reality you will prob get under 50 bucks for it.

    That be cooler. Just advertise that they buy, they transport. Its not that big of a tank so weight isnt an issue. With most larger tanks thats usually the deciding factor, but with yours it should be an issue.

    Awesome. Do you usually transport with the water in it?

    Two 5g buckets would move everything. That's a super easy move.

    I'll list it for 75$ and if it doesn't go I'll just keep it.

    The reason I say 75$ is because it's got a nice filter and it's only been up for 3 months.
