    330 Gallon Set Up for Sale (With or Without AWESOME Livestock) - Chicagoland Suburbs

    Looking to sell my fresh water set-up as:
    - a complete set-up or
    - just the tank, stand, canopy, sump (minus biomedia and scrubbies), & 48" HO T8 light.

    Not willing to separate fish for individual sales - I'm either going to keep these guys or get more into lighter stocked planted tanks.


    I am the 3rd owner of this tank. The tank and all these fish have been purchased from the fine hobbyists on Monster Fish Keepers (well, the WAL and RCK were from a pet store, but I was with a MFK memeber).

    My goal with this tank was a collection of the "classic" ancient fresh water fish. They can all grow full size in this tank. They all get along very nicely with ZERO aggression towards one another. All fish are trained on Massivore, floating pellets, frozen, and algae wafers.

    Here is what I have:
    - 330 Gallon Tencor Acrylic Tank.
    * 74"x30"x30"
    * 3/4" Thick Acrylic
    * Tank is in good condition. It does have some minor light scratching - it is acrylic!
    * UGH! I got five light 5" scratches last night from my magfloat - too light to get pictures of.
    * There is

    - Custom Made Stand - this stand is BULLET Proof - well, not literally, but it is very over built.
    - Custom Stand Enclosure and Canopy - the second owner was a custom cabinet maker and make a brand new stand cover and canopy for me (maybe 6 months old) - they are painted in Black textured deck paint (RESTORE from Home Depot). It is water proof and very nice.
    - 100 Gallon Sump
    * Very Quite Design
    * I think there are 80 "scrubbies" in a nice custom bin
    * 4 or 5 Media Bags with Media
    * Air pump for additional oxygenation and circulation under the "scrubby" bin - (this was a bright idea that I got one day, but might just be a waste of electricity)
    * (2) Mag 18's each pumping 1800 gph back into the tank.
    * Floating Thermometer
    * Extra Filter Socks (Runs on two 100 micron 7" socks)
    * (2) 300 W heaters - one is a brand new Fluval. - Heaters are rarely on - the pumps keep the water to temp.
    * 700? gph pump to circulate water over the scrubbies (2 spray bars)
    * Covers for the Sump (1" Foam Insulation Board)
    * 3/4" Acrylic Covers for the Tank

    * All plumbing goes with it - THIS IS A COMPLETE SET-UP!
    - Substrate: Pool filter sand
    - Lighting: (2) 36" Digital Fluro Odyssea Lamps (these each have 2 independantly controlable flurecent bulbs plus LED night lights with built in timers) - Lights only 1 month old.
    - Drift Wood: (4) Beautiful pieces of JAVA wood. One is a tunnel. All have sunk to the bottom with out weight.
    - Plants: (3) large clumps of Anubias growing on the drift wood. (2) Moss Balls.
    - 1 Light Under the Stand
    - XL MagFloat

    FISH (the really cool part) - I've traveled all over the place and these fish have come from around the world to get to me and now to you. I've met some great people piecing this collection together and put many mile on my car.
    All Measurements are Eyeball and are super conservative
    - 22" Black Arowana (the center piece of the tank)
    - 24"+ West African Lungfish (WAL) - my favorite fish
    - (4) Florida Gar Ranging from 13" to 16"+
    - 9" Flagtail (not an "Ancient" - but a great algae cleaner that is 100% cooler than a pleco)
    - Bichirs / Polypterus (I'm bad with my Bichir Species Names)
    * 10"+ Patternless Delhizi
    * 14"+ endlicheri
    * 6" Not sure what Species this guy is
    * 8" to 10" Royal Clown Knife (hard to tell the size - he hangs out in the tunnel most of the time)
    - 20" Tire Track Eel

    If you know what your looking at, a package like this does not come around very often. There is action/movement at every level of the tank and at all times.

    You made it this far - you must be interested or just want to see some more pictures and videos - here you go!
    Here are a link to more pictures: https://picasaweb.google.com/1018014...eat=directlink

    Video of WAL getting some air: http://youtu.be/gwHvY3Vw2gI
    Video of WAL eating (close up) - turn up your volume and hear him crunch it up: http://youtu.be/Dw4kLoIZeu0
    Video of Eel: http://youtu.be/cHxx05XJFGM
    Video of the Tank: http://youtu.be/-X664aDr6cc
    Video of Little Bichir: http://youtu.be/oAEcZdKVPuA\
    Video of the Sump: http://youtu.be/672RY-Uu0p4
    - After Watching All Those Videos I Think I Should Be Asking More! -

    YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR MOVING THIS THING. I will help with moral support and good strategy. I moved it with three people total with 3 moving dollies. It is not that heavy and is actually pretty easy to move if you do it the right way. You will need to also bring a big net, containers to transport the fish, and containers for the bio-media to keep it submerged.

    I'm asking:
    Complete Turn Key Set-Up: $3,250
    Tank (w/ tops), Stand, Canopy, 48" HO T8 Light, Sump (minus media), and Plumbing for the Sump - $2,400
    (note - I'm asking more on CL, please mention you are an MFK member in your email)

    ITEM LOCATION - HIGHLAND PARK, IL - Close to Chicago.

    74x30x30 = 290, not 330. Is that an 8 foot tank or not a 330?
