View Full Version : 125 Gallon RR FS

05/31/2006, 05:35 PM
Well, my Dad bought this tank with the intention to replace his current tank, but instead he decided to sell the house and the new house will have room for a much, much, much larger tank. :D (That is if I can get him to go for it.) Anyway, the tank was used once as a reef so you shouldn't need to worry about copper and it comes with an oak stand that needs just a little work to finish it. I've also got some lumber to give you a head start on a canopy. $300

Too bad you can't join 125's together like legos.

Come on Russ, you know you want it. :D

hmmmmm payment for for Russ' labor in the basement?????

Hehe! Nah! Eric is already hooking me up with something. I really cant take the 125 even if was free. It will just sit empty for a long time before I got around to it. Bigger tank will mean a bigger skimmer, more lights, bigger sump, more flow, and missing work to go to court for my divorce hearing.

Although, they say a tank should be replaced after 10 years. Mine is about that old now so......must......resist.....

And your point?????

I have a feeling I'd take it if it was free.

06/01/2006, 07:52 PM
Sorry Russ, I would gladly give it to you for free if it was mine, but alas it's not. However I will gladly help you build the canopy if you want it. ;)

I shoulda bought a bigger house, I got this 72" halide fixture laying around wispering "use me, use me".

06/06/2006, 07:50 PM
Okay, looks like I'm gonna have to sweeten the deal... I'll throw in a 55g tank to use for a sump.

OK, you Colorado people don't know how good you got it. My old 125 (non drilled) Is consigned by the guy who bought it from me. It has the tank, a Petsmart canopy and a nice stand, T5 lights a 18 gallon tank for a sump and a remora pro skimmer. The LFS has it priced at $1399.00

Here you have a RR 125 with stand and a 55 gallon sump for 300 and no takers. I should have gotten a much bigger house.

I hate to do it but if this baby doesn't sell, I'll be using it as a sump... (what a waste of a RR tank...)

06/09/2006, 12:47 PM
I know they pretty much look the same but maybe posting a pic would help.

06/09/2006, 12:48 PM
I really did almost buy it though. It was a decision between a 125 or Tunze. Tunze will be here next week.

06/09/2006, 12:50 PM
LOL! I'll try to get some pics, but right now it's surrounded by boxes...

06/09/2006, 01:28 PM
Grim Reefer just added some icing to this cake!!!

72" 250 watt HQI system, EVC e-ballasts with about 6 months of use on them. It can sit on or hang above the tank and he's also throwing in a brand new Via Aqua skimmer for the sump. Light and skimmer for 500 bones... He's open to trades on the light too. That's 800 bucks for a 125 RR w stand, 55 gallon for sump, HQI lighting and a skimmer.

Too bad you aren't closer to me I'd be very tempted. How does the black tank look on an oak stand? Can I see a pic of the stand?

06/09/2006, 03:48 PM
The stand's trim covers the black trim of the tank so all you see is the glass and oak. Of course the top trim is still shown since there isn't a canopy, but one could be made to match the cabinet very easily. I'll try to get some pics this weekend. If someone wants to up the price a bit, I'd be glad to build a matching canopy and build better door than are currently on it.

Its about time!

06/14/2006, 04:59 PM
Yeah, now it frees up time to sell mine, if I need to.

06/15/2006, 08:31 AM
Tell me about it... Strange got it sold and then had multiple people wanting it. :)
