Well, posting this one hurts, but after 8 years growing my reef, it is finally time to let it go. Too many other hobbies plus work competing for my time so I'm looking for a good home for all my critters. I'll list everything that comes with the system below, but the entire system would cost over $5,400 to build today. I'm looking for $1,200 for the lot and I really don't want to break it up. I am located in Babylon, Long Island and am looking for local pickup only, please. Email me at [email protected] if you have any questions.
