So this guy Vern has a big group of tanks out in Hermantown. I went and looked at it tonight -> https://duluth.craigslist.org/for/6673334136.html - $50 was the asking price for all.

There is a LOT of stuff there, but over half the glass tanks were visibly cracked and trash (not even salvageable as vivarium/terrarium usage); by my count, there are 2 10's, and 2 29's (one of them drilled with a huge overflow) and there MAY be a 2nd 29 at the bottom of the stack that isn't cracked (But can't say for certain). There are several Marineland HOB BioWheel Filters (At least 3 or 4), and there is a rather interesting Acrylic setup; that setup alone may be worth $50 for the right person (kinda like a frag tank style...very odd, seems DIY, but seems solid). There is also some sort of biocube style tank, a larger size (eg. 24-29 gallon style) that seems to be not cracked, but is lacking all the pumps and other internals and no light.

For the person who wants to wade through this, you could maybe get a few tanks out of it. I ultimately declined the entire thing, not worth my time to wade through as really the only thing I wanted were the 10s...and I can buy those new for $10 at Petco. But...again...for the right person, there is enough here to make it worth your while if you want to set up a few tanks.

8/28/18 - donated a used Penn Plax Cascade Canister Filter to the zoo to replace the existing media reactor that has been a continual problem. While functional, we noted that it will need a new impeller. Also donated big, largely unused thing of DFS phosphate removal pads.

Just some notes; the bad algae is back, phosphates are up in the reef. This may be due to going for several months without a proper carbon reactor (since the two little fishies one developed another leak).

Sad to report that for unknown reasons, most of the new fish in QT died (all the damsels, and the angel!!!! Sad ). The filefish pair remain.  We also couldn't find one of the three Singapore angles in the main display; we may be down to 2 there.

We discovered that the Chiller was leaking, so most of our time was spent dealing with that; it sounds like our repair was successful.

We discovered that the Magnesium test on hand was faulty, and also expired by 3 years. That went in the trash, and they'll have to replace.

On the 28th, Megan was able to stop by my house and pick up a Penn Plax Cascade canister filter, which we will use to replace the media reactor. I also found a huge section of DFS Phosphate removing pads, so Megan and the team can work on getting the tank back into proper alignment. The filter's impeller was showing signs of wear and rust, so they know that part will need to be replaced ASAP.

I realized sadly I have to take this off sticky, as it's my understanding Jim has effectively closed shop in the last year.  Cry

FREE Stuff posted on Craigslist, looks clean and realtively in good shape, may well be $100 worth of stuff if it was new. Someone should grab it - https://duluth.craigslist.org/zip/6684430820.html

I honestly don't know! What is the totality of what you're listing for $150?

Not sure what we'll be doing for this meeting, but I think we might have things ready to come out of quarantine???! Maybe? Not sure.

I might be interested in just the VDM???

Did you reconsider selling? Or more than one Josh? Just saw this today!

Just a reminder this is happening tomorrow! No official plan for this one, just checking in, doing whatever needs to be done. Will have some goodies on hand!
13  LSMAC Club Forums / LSZOO Reef Project / Great Lakes Aquarium (GLA) - Zoo Donation Inventory on: June 10, 2018, 01:16:12 pm
Darin Reinke and the Great Lakes Aquarium truly overwhelmed us last week with a MASSIVE donation of CORAL for the Zoo's Reef Tank.  They filled 2 5-gallon buckets and a huge black tub to the brims with surplus coral that was just sitting in the "back of the house", taking over holding tanks, fragments from breaking while maintaining the tanks of all things.

As time permits I'll try to figure out a better inventory of what was provided, but from memory there were three types of chalice corals, including three ultra massive colonies, tons of Claustrea / Candy Cane Coral, which is fragged and will likely be sold off to fund raise, a few big hunks of an orange Monti Digi; some other type of lumpy branching Monti, a few Pocilliopora frags...just tons.

I'd estimate the retail value of the contribution to be easily in excess of $2000.

While not necessarily a donation directly to the Zoo Reef / LSZOO, Ben made a $13 cash donation to the club at tonight's meeting...and since basically all the club money is getting invested with the zoo's reef, effectively, I'm sure that's where the money will wind up going sooner or later. THANKS BEN!

Update, due to some items not arriving, the Club's contribution to the zoo came in at $98 instead of $142.

And tonight, Ben made a $13 cash donation to the club as well.

New Club Balance = $123.00
