    Most of you have heard, by now, that I am moving my fish room back to my house and dialing the whole retail importer gig way, way back. I will be going from 250+ aquariums down to 49, so I will have a LOT of glass and equipment to sell. But I also have to keep the fishroom running until I can move all the livestock I do not plan to keep. Here is the plan...

    Phase 1 - move the tanks and fish I will keep to my basement (should be complete by the end of April)
    Phase 2 - sell off all the livestock remaining in the fish room (look for an open house event in May to do this)
    Phase 3 - dismantle the fish room and sell off the fixtures (another open house in late May)
    Phase 4 - emptying the fish room; everything must go, either into helper's cars (for free) or into a big dumpster. This will be everything that I do not want to hold onto. There will be everything from aquariums to artwork. This will be a 'please come help' day sometime in June.

    For those of you interested in aquarium set ups for fishroom tanks with racks, I WILL PRESELL THEM IF YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU GET WHAT YOU WANT. Contact me to make arrangements.

    110 gallon aquarium with custom southwest-style cabinet stand $200
    150 gallon set up with Custom Aquarium cabinet stand and Seamless Sump Filter system $900
    3/4 hp regenerative blower $250
    4-zone automated water change manifold with Rain Bird controller (I cannot fully describe how much of a PITA this is to build) $100

    Rack systems (includes tanks, most of which are drilled, with bulkheads)
    4x20L, 4x15, 5x10 - all end out, top drilled in back center, on rack (58"x30"x 76" tall to top of top tanks... rack can be easily shortened) - $180 (10 9 6 5 available)

    3x33, 12x15 - 15's are end out, front drilled on bottom left (except 2) with valve and plumbed to a gutter (turn the valve, drain the tank); the 33's are face out and not drilled. Rack is to rows and tall. Approximately 12' long, 2' wide and 60" tall - $250 SOLD

    10x40br on a single-level 'table top' style stand, positioned end out... whole rack is a tad over 15-feet long, 36" wide and about 48" tall. Plenty of room under the rack for storage. - $400 SOLD

    After everyone who wants a complete rack system has what they want, the remaining tanks will be sold $1/gallon. I will not presell individual tanks... too much to keep track of. I suspect there will be plenty of tanks to go around.

    Please watch for an announcement for the livestock open house in a few weeks. I am sure that there will be some equipment and fixtures ready to go as well.

    Sad to hear you are scaling down. Hope you have plenty of help. If only it was 2 months ago I would have liked your bigger tanks.
