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
