    Tank has been established for a little over a year. I havent added any fish for about 3 months and everything is doing fantastic.(my very first fish is still alive)

    Been dosing with purple up regularily and starting to get good Coralline Algae growth on rocks and glass.

    IMHO the price is based on what you think is a fair price and what would you pay for if you were the consumer. Although everything was purchased “brand new” it is used now and you would never make your money back. If your trying to sell the whole lot you have to find someone who is looking for the same setup as what you have for sale. I think you would get a better price if you sold things individually. That’s just my opinion and I do hope you can get what you are looking for!

    Good Luck!
