1 Wimplefish "poor man's moorish idol"
1 Raccoon Butterfly
1 Threadfin Butterfly

2 Common Percula Clownfish
2 Yellow Tang
1 Yellow-Tailed Chromis

3 brittle starfish

I would like to sell all of the above to a good owner for ($80 cash).

I also have about 100 pounds of base rock for sale ($40 cash).

And for that matter my entire setup is for sale ($300 cash), provided I
can sell the fish and base rock.

90 gallon (48" x 18" x 24" tall)
extremely sturdy homemade stand (made from 4"x4"'s)
homemade lighting fixture for (8) 40w fluorescent bulbs, with bulbs
a homemade protein skimmer with "luft" air pump
a "quiet one" pump, although the pump overheats and wont run much longer
than an hour, so I don't normally use it.
2 powerheads with sponge filters
2 whisper powerfilters (type "C")
2 timers for lights
1 fan
2 power strips (built into the stand and hood)

The tank is drilled with a hole in the bottom for the "trickle" filter,
but I don't use it. Although this is included. There is a pvc pipe
that runs from the water surface down through the hole to the filter
below, this means the tank can't be move separately from the stand.

The tank would be extremely difficult to move, and you will need a truck
and a strong back. Frankly, I dread the thought of trying to move this.

I originally had live rock, but neglect and a copper treatment 3 months
ago has rendered it base rock. The copper should be mostly gone due
to removal via water changes, activated carbon, and poly filter. I
wouldn't recommend this rock for a proper reef tank, but it would be
good for a "fish" tank. The base rock is my only biological "filter" in
the 90 gallon tank, so the bacteria are good.

Originally about 16 months ago I had a great 90 gal tank set up.
I shouldn't have changed anything, but I purchased the 3 butterflies
listed above and added them to my tank. That introduced a paracite that
slowly killed off some real nice fish. The last fish to die (3 months
ago) was my Queen Angel that I had had 11 years since it was 2" long.
These remaining fish are tough and hardy, and show no signs of parasites
or disease, although I would recommend giving them a "freshwater dip" if
you want to introduce them to live with other fish. I bought these
butterflies at World of Fish, and considering that their tanks are
linked together, I would assume any fish bought their would be
comparable if not worse.

MS is too far for me but I just wanted to comment on your honesty with the
situation. Good Job =)
