View Full Version : Can you help me identify / value 3 pumps, 2 tanks, 1 skimmer?

I joined this forum 10 years ago and started to build my first reef. It was a great experience. Many users from the canreef forum helped me not only figure out what equipment I needed, but then also helped me acquire a lot of it.

I sadly haven't had any tanks in use for 5 years and won't be able to get back into it any time soon, but I do still have equipment that has been safely stored. I'd like to give back into the community a little bit by offering what I have on the buy / sell forum, but I'm afraid some of what I have (like the skimmer) might be obsolete at this point.

I was wondering if anyone might want to help me identify what I have here and put an appropriate value on it. My next step will be to make it available on the buy / sell forum at a below value price, and hopefully help someone else who is starting out get their first reef started.

I hope this is the best forum for this post. Hopefully it's understood that I'm looking for help to help the someone else out. Photos are attached.

Let me help you out there. That's a very generous offer. Lots of good people here, that's for sure!

The pumps and the tanks are the only thing really worth their weight. I usually go a $1/gallon (figure out gallons by multiplying width, height, and depth then divide that number by 231). The powerheads would be ~$10 a piece. The skimmer is antique, use it for a flower planter. The plumbing bits with pipe in place you'd be smart just to give away. Good on you for trying to help someone out with reasonable prices.

Thanks for our help. Looks like the items that have some value are:

Powerhead 301 - $10
Powerhead 301 - $10
Mag 7 - $30
10 gallon tank - $10
10 gallon tank - $10

I'll go put them on the Edmonton buy / sell and see if there is anyone looking for some starter equipment.
