I currently have a 240 gallon planted tank... but it hasn't gone as planned... and I am going to make it a salt tank... but I must first get rid of what's there. This tank has been set up for over 6 months and the chemistry is great... but I have severe algae issues. What I have is:

$.99-$5 ea - asst plants (they are all small right now)
$10 per 20 lb – Live Red Fluorite (I have 440lbs) I paid $17 for 20 lbs dry.
$70 ea - I have two very large pieces of Driftwood. I paid $100 ea and they weren't even presunk... they are fully saturated now and don't leach into the water so your water will stay clear.
$50 – 5lb CO2 bottle… it’s$15 to refill/exchange it and this one actually needs to be exchanged. You’ll pay $80 for a new one. It’s a great deal. You’ll save $30
(2)lg Snake Gouramies 8” $5 Ea
(3) Giant Gouramies $2 ea
(4) Opaline Gouramies $2 ea
(2) Platinum Gouramies $2 ea
(1) Pictus Cat 3” $3
(1) Electric Blue Jack Dempsey 3” $25
(2) Large Angels 1-Marble and 1- Silver stripped 5” $7 ea
(2) Golden Sharks 4” $3 ea

Please e-mail me with questions.

craigslist

Yes this tank is on craigslist. The area for Jacksonville has a picture. But Here is the picture for here. It is a long way away I know... I may be in the area soon.

Very nice. Hate to see you giving up but that will make one sweet saltwater tank. Does not look like there is a lot of flow in the tank from the looks of the surface. Could that have been an issue??

no... it did great till my co2 regulator decided it was time to put 5lbs of co2 into the tank... now algae is out of control, and this isn't what I wanted to start with... was an idea to be able to let me have the tank and all we could afford at the time... now that my husband is into the hobby like me he wants lionfish, but that wont work in my reef tank.
