2nd Hand Tanks - Price estimate?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Would anyone have an opinion on what the following second hand tanks are worth?

I am buying from a friend and just want to make sure we both get a fair deal.

Tank 1 – 6ft tank - 183 x 46 x 60cm

This tank brand new: $305.

Second hand??

Condition: Quite a bit of grit, scratches, some chips and no glass covers.

Tank 2 – 3ft tank – 91 x 38 x 25cm

This tank band new: $89

Second hand??

Condition: Some grit & scratches, some chips and no glass covers.

Maybe if you looked through some earlier for sale threads you could find out for yourself.

For what it's worth a friend of mine just bought a 6x2x2 with stand in good condition for $150

Just to clarify these tanks came from Aquariums R Us and the "new price" was what they charge for those tanks new.

I was thinking $35 for the 3ft tanks (in pretty good condition)

And $75 for the 6ft? Not sure about that as the glass is not great.

Thoughts?

that sounds more sensible possibly should have mentioned that in original post

Can get a new 6x2x2 for $270

I've already seen you spruiking lloyds tank. Decent price for a new tank but it's without stand.

I'm tempted to get a new 5x3 and pay a bit more if I can't get a decent 6x2.

a stand can be made for that 6x2 or I have a old timber one you can have for $60

A new stand will end up as much as the tank. Not many stands on their own come up.
