Milw Area 10g Kit

Basically what the subject says. I'm looking to clean up some stuff and have not used this in a while. Some of it (filter and heater) have never been used.

Decided to do this as I was cleaning out my computer stuff too and seen these and decided they need to go. Only one is up for ROAK, first come first served.

Would be ideal setup for Betta or nano tank for some endlers, shrimp and the like. We were using to house crabs.

My terms
-Preferred beginner to the hobby: 6/30- OPEN TO ALL provided you can meet terms
-Post progress pictures of setup (tag me with the @ in posts)
-Promise to do what is in the best interest and care for the inhabitants
-If at anytime (within reason of course) you decide to not keep it, please return to me OR offer it back up to ROAK thread or someone you know.
-YOU CANNOT SELL IT, this is a PAY IT FORWARD deal!!!

Included
-Everything that comes in the box
-10G Tank
-50W submersible heater
-HOB filter with new filter pad
-Hood with integrated LED light
-Your choice of aquarium sand (shown) or salt/pepper gravel



It's a from Petsmart.

Link to all the pictures I took.

Comes with everything as new but the tank/light have been used.

Because I feel I have to- I reserve the right to deny anybody of this free equipment for any reason. If I think of anything else to update with I will and feel free to ask any questions.

Thanks

This would be perfect for my Son. But I would assume shipping costs for this is less than ideal (if you would even consider shipping it).

Great offer BTW!

Thanks.

While I would consider shipping. I'm pretty sure you'd be able to get the setup from Petsmart for about the same price or cheaper or a combination of parts between craigslist and LPS/LFS.

*update
Just threw in some numbers and is pretty pricey.

Used:
Weight- 20LBS
Dimensions- 24" long x 16" Width x 16" Height
Zip- 91710 (first zip to come up when searching your location)

UPS- $67
USPS- $48 (I think I did something wrong lol)
FedEx- $73

Dimensions are rough estimate. I'm not sure I would trust the box the tank comes in so the cost would likely go up. Also, I wouldn't be totally opposed to covering some of it but not sure what I could actually cover (funds are tight atm).

If still serious I'd be willing to take it to a shipping service to get quote but wouldn't be until next week sometime.

Thanks! Seems harder than I thought to give something away lol. And sorry! Looking at your location, it probably wouldn't have been any better on shipping than for Da Mojo.

Lol. Sounds like you have your hands full of tanks This distance thing is killing giving it away haha.


I updated that it's open to anybody, regardless of "newb" status . Just have to be OK with the terms, those aren't changing.

Thanks,
Outlaw

Agreed. And too bad nobody is around here. Guess I am more remote than I thought. I'd be willing to drive at least part of the way

Ugh. I have been watching this post for weeks. I live in Chicago. I would love to take it. I’m a newbie. Only have a 5 gal Betta and a 25 (still stocking) gal. I’m perfect. Except. I can’t get a tank right now. I’d get a “you JUST got one!”
Good luck on finding someone! I’ll contact again if I can change some minds.

Good luck with the jedI mind tricks!

Gurnee or possibly Pleasant Prairie are roughly half-way depending part of Chicago. And I'm going to copy/paste my reply: I'll have to see if the fam wants to make a trip out there. I might be able to bribe them I will have to find when that would work though between work and sports.


To keep some of it together. Some interest here-
