40B and 55G setups for sale NJ

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

   I have recently put a pond in the yard and I am going to be moving 2 tanks worth of fish out there ASAP. I will have these 2 setups available. The 40B will include the stand, LED strip, tank, and filter. The 55 setup will include the stand, tank, and filter and glass tops and possibly LED light. I haven't really thought about pricing yet, but it will be very reasonable. I'm just putting this out there to gauge interest before going to Craigslist :scared :scared  They will be pickup only. I may have a filter or 2 left for sale also. I'll update with pricing and all available equipment once I figure out what I am selling and keeping since I will still be running a 55G, but the 2 tanks listed will surely be for sale. Thanks :thumbs:

I'm thinking about just using a stock tank for the less hardy fish. The pond has a big area that is about 32 inches deep so it should be deep enough for the others.

You should have a tank available if you need to isolate a sick fish or maybe have a place for a crop of spring babies.  

 

I don't recall seeing a picture of this pond.  

 

Build a "greenhouse" type cover for the pond, and you should be able to keep all the fish out there through the winter.

I was going to start a thread once I get it completed :thumb: It's been a crazy busy summer so far. I thought about building a temp greenhouse for the winter. I'm already looking into it.

Hi Rob! This is very interesting to me as I have also just put all my fancy's in my pond!!...I am slightly concerned about winter ! but here in sw England our winters are mild the pond never froze at all last winter! but I did leave the waterfall running!!

Shakahos idea about a greenhouse cover sound's good! Anyway all my fish are feeding and getting their fair share!!... Good luck with the pond!! :-)

Most importantly,  a winter cover in a mild climate keeps frozen precipitation out of the pond.  Without it, you can wind up with a pond full of slush which will be a uniform 0C/32F.  Goldfish can survive this, but not for long.  A covering of ice actually keeps the water warmer.

Thanks, this is good info. I will keep it filed away for when I am deciding what to do in October/November :cold:

Hey fingers I kept some fancies outside through winter last year in the freezing cold (below 0) and they did fine until a heron got two of them  :tantrum  :madrant

A nice thing about building a pond cover is that the same frame can support a net to keep out the birdies in the summer  and insulating materials in the winter.,
