    Default 160 Gallon Stapphire Glass Aquarium

    Due to Health reasons, decided to downsize. This is a custom made Center drilled overflow from Glasscages in Nashville Tenn. It includes matching stand with right end access for sump placement, and canopy. Up and running uneventful since 2008. moved once. The glass is 1/2" thick, and empty tank weighs roughly 400+lbs. It includes Little Giant return pump, acrylic sump, couples with refugium for max. filtration, K2 media. Price is negotiable for local pickup in Vero Beach, Fl. only please. Would consider trade of 75 gallon tank and difference made up with cash. Priced at $700, negotiable. Thank you, Boyd.

    Heck of a deal. If only I wasn't 1,500 miles away...
    At my age, everything is irritating.

    I was thinking the same thing Willie. When I saw Pat had posted and knowing she lived in Florida I thought for sure she'd snapped it up, lol.
    All the best with your sale Boyd!

    Good day Pat, yes please post on FB.
    Sadly I lost Big Boy a few Months ago, he had a very good run, and brought many hours of peace to my World. Thank you.
    Going to take a break, and come back to a 75 gallon, cutting back on work etc. Nothing serious, normal aches and pains of age :-)
    Thank you and Al for all you do for us :-)

    Thank you Willie, has been a great set-up. I feel sad, however I know I will return and continue with a 75 :-)

    Hi Boyd, he lived a good long life. I posted on FB and asked for anyone interested to PM you. Of course they will need to log into the forum.

    Footprint wise, is a 160 just a taller 135?

    Thank you, Its been a great set up. Sadly, everyone ( other than this site ) has attempted to lowball. I have taken it off those sites. I question callers on their experience with Discus etc. if they do not have knowledge, I do not sell. I will ask to keep it up on our site, as I know Pat and Al run a great website. I still have it, as I come Home from work at 10 pm, they swim over to my big image and wait to be fed. These Discus are from a Friend here locally via Kenny RIP. I will keep them until you make room for this set up :-)
