    Getting out. have a question

    I'm not sure this is the right area but anyway, Maybe some of the more experience people in this hobby can answer this for me. Is it better to sell your aquarium as a complete setup or sell the tank and stand as one and all accessories separate?

    You can try to sell turn key but I think if you have a large tank should sell live stock and corals first.
    If its small the whole thing can be carried

    It's 125g with a 36g sump so I cant ship it, it would have to be local pickup which really cuts down potential sales. I was wondering if it would be better to break it all down and ship what I can and leave the tank and stand for local pickup.

    Piecing it out will probably give you more bang for your buck on each item, but you risk being stuck with some things that you can't sell, plus it's a lot more time that you have to invest selling each item. A package deal might not yield as much money, but you sell everything at once.

    It's all about time and money... piecing it out will usually get you more money, selling it at a good discount all together will get it sold quicker.

    You can put it up for sale in either in the regional section or in the main FS section on Reef2Reef and notate the tank sump and stand are local pickup only.
