Hey bud, sorry to see you getting out of the hobby! 

I dont know what you would have in externally plumbable pumps, but im looking for something i can hard plumb with 1" pvc to mix salt,  move water from barrel to barrel, and barrel to tank.  Have a use for other smaller pumps as well.  

Maybe would consider a large uv sterilizer as well.  

Honestly i have no idea what all youve got, and where to start with prices.  Im not looking to lowball anyone, but brands and sizes matter

I have a 2 150 gal tanks both of them have a thumb nail size chip in the back right corner of the glass one tank came to me like that 5 years ago never had a problem with the tank.

second tank has exact same problem and it is drilled for reef ready and I am running it right now with close to 100lbs of rock in it and a few fish.

the first tank needs to have the stand repainted or stained I kept sting rays in that tank and the spit water out when they wanted attention and over the years it took the finish off the stand
if some one want it I will sell for $100

 

the second tank is full of fish and water so I would need to drain the tank and catch the fish $150 for it

after all the fish and stuff is gone I have a 180G reef tank a lot of the members have seen in person plus it has a custom hood from RJ's stands and hoods it is a great hood I have 3 400W day light bulbs I use 15K

 

here is the 180 12-11-2015.JPG


most the corals are gone this is a pic from like 2 years ago

 

looking for photos of 150"

I may be interested in one or both of the 150's. I'd have to do some rearranging in the basement though and sell a bunch of smaller tanks.  Are they empty and ready to go?

what size tank are you putting it on I have 2 as long as I can find all the parts for the smaller one this the big one it runs off a pan world 70R the pressure rated one this thing ran both 150's and a 180 Gal it sucked all the protein out of the tanks. The skimmer is 4 foot tall and is a mrc clone that was built when all of us (MRC and A. Calfho and some others) use to be on IRC channels back 15 years ago the smaller one I have is for 150 and down just have to make sure I have the cup I believe I do .:) not sure of the make but it was bought from fish Doc will sell the one in the pic for $150 comes with matching collection cup that is the size of one of the sections also have the reactor it has dual 6 inch diameter chambers comes with correct size pump and a 5lbs co2 tank regulator and gages dual bubble counter $200 the black 75 $100 as is does not leak or any thing I think one of the back corner fittings snapped in half so you will need to go to home depot and get a hose barb fitting to replace it it is drilled factory for overflow and return in same corner also have a Oak colored one that I drilled out for overflow and return 1 inch up and 1.5" drain I think might be a little larger if i am $100 for it also. wanted to say on both the center boards on the tank need to be reached one got kicked out while moving  and the other a student thought it would be funny till he was caught on camera doing it. nothing that cant be fixed in 5 minutes.
