Alright learning a little here.... upon further review... it is a MRC CR-1 Calcium reactor with what looks to be 10lb tank... This was on a 120

I gotta take life one step at a time.. I will look up what brand the regulator is.. All the stuff I bought from this person seems to be top notch brands. The regulator has a sylenoid (sp) that you plug in... Not sure how any of this works but that might give and idea of it... Pics are here

From what I see... There is a maxijet 1200 feeding the reactor from the sump. Where the reactor is powered by a much larger pump. The CO2 tank is a 10lb tank (have no idea how much is in it, but know there is co2 in it), The regulator has 2 gauges and some sort of sylenoid that is plugged in...

I'll take the tank and reg. How much?
I wouldnt be opposed to taking the whole setup off your hands, but I know less than you about calcium reactors so I cant make an offer... no clue what any of it is new let alone used.
where do you even go to get a CO2 tank refilled presuming that tank does eventually run out...

What kind if tank are you running? Fish only or corals? If corals then what kind?

Ares, I have basically just looked at the pricing on the web for all the products listed and am looking for somewhere around half that since it is used... it is in new condition though, I just understand the fish tank game... as far as refills I would even think paintball stores could do it.
Wolfie, this came from a tank I just purchased the tank was actually 140 gallons once measured and I believe I read the CR1 can handle up to 300 or 500 (check into that on MRC website). Right now I am just housing rock and fish in my tanks until I can move out and get my dream tank setup.

I would like to sell it as a whole setup since I am lazy and parting out requires dealing with 2 people instead of one, but if noone wants the complete setup it will be parted. I would like $260 (cash) for the complete setup. I priced everything out seprately and came to a little over $550.

If you decide to part out, I will snatch up that tank and regulator!!
09-05-2008, 6:37 PM
Regarding tank... I have just been told (from the person I bought it from watching this thread) it is only a 5# tank... I told you I knew nothing about this! Told me has over $650 in it with the media (also have some more in a jug)....
First $260 gets it

FYI.The reg is a Milwaukee.

Sold... I will have some more stuff in the near future, once i figure out what i want from this tank
