I don't think it's going to be the price I'm asking for that stops people wanting it, it's going to be the size of the dam thing, or how many people want or have got the space for a tank this size. And even if they do want it, they are going to need a sizeable van plus about six blokes the size of Arnold Schwarzenegger to lift it.


Price depends on condition(scratches,chips,etc) & if it's glass or acrylic( & if the acrylic is faded). I sold my 180gl AGA tank & stand for $400. I think a used acrylic in good shape that size used would fetch around $900, glass around $750 or so. Are you selling a stand to go w/ it? That could also factor into final price, as you did state it was custom.

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

My 180Gl,with ALL extras, including sump, lights, nightlights cost me (or my mom) 500 euro's, that's 400 pounds.
700 Pound seems like a decent price to start, if you also intend to sell the filtration system etc with the setup...

Plus indeed they will need at least 6 Swarzeneggers, better more, to move the thing.
Your luck is that you still have it running, so people can see what the tank looks like with fish.

I was lucky ,that the guy selling it,was moving homes, and had to get rid of the tank fast. :)
After i set up the whole thing, i even returned to his home, to bring him some tickets for the movies, for him and his wife, for i was VERY pleased with all he had given me for the tank, and imo the tank was worth far more. then i offered. :P
