Quitting hobby

HI,

Well I am going to call it quits, this time for good - promised the wife. The first time was 3 years ago and was due to financial reasons - company downsizing eliminated my position. This time is because I have sadly just lost interest in the hobby and am traveling way too much to maintain and enjoy it anymore. I am interested in selling locally - I dont feel like or have the time or boxes necessary to pack up and ship out everything, and squabbling over shipping costs is a royal pain. I also posted in some of the other NY area club forums. (whatever happened to the NYC area club - they purchased alot of my stuff last time and were also a pleasure to deal with - I cant remember the persons name who drove up here to pick up everything, but he was an Assistant Dean I believe?). Of course the livestock must go first, they are beautiful and very healthy. Once they are gone I will then start to take down the tank and disconnect the piping/treatment system end. I have listed all the major equipment below and my price - I think the prices are very reasonable considering the age and quality of the equipment. Please dont send me annoying low-ball offers, I will not respond back. This is not a fire sale and I am in no hurry or need to off load everything yesterday. All of my equipment is in excellent condition both operationally and cosmetically. Any of you who bought stuff from me the last time can attest to my maintaining my equipment and taking pride in my tank. I will try and post photos of the main equipment/tank/livestock tomorrow.

Thanks

Once you've got the fish gone I'll take one for the heaters, both salt mixes, and the magnet. What size are the hayward valves?
Thanks,
Walter

Aqualab, in photobucket, click "edit", go to picture size, and go down one size. That should work.

Redrider911 how do I then transfer the smaller sized photos from photobucket to the My Gallery on Reef Central? I am not very savy with this stuff as you can tell.

Thanks,

Here is the link.
