Although I don't know how to put a link here, I saw a CL posting for a 55g reef tank (up and running) which contains 100lbs of live rock - the poster recently got divorced and needs to get rid of it. If I had the room and $$ what would be a reasonable offer?46 gal fw tank with black skirt tetras, neon tetras, spotted corys, cherry barbs, otoclinus, snails & 4 amano shrimp - plastic & live plants
5 gal QT

I've seen live rock advertized on USA sites for around $5 to $9 per lb. If its good quality rock, somewhere around $2 to $4 per lb would be a good estimate. (depending on the quality of the rock).
I'd check out adds for other 55 gallon tanks in the same area to get a idea of what its worth
You could always make him a offer and see what happensIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

I wouldn't low ball him some ppl get pissed at that lol... I'd say they're probably looking for around $300 but that's low, depending on how bad they need to get rid of it you could score pretty big here
Do you know exactly what comes with it?55g Long --> After 18mo of doing well the tank crashed during moving. Most likely cause: Flatworm Die-off... won't start another until after moving... Likely not until late 2013
20g Long --> currently concoting a build plan
Check out the journal to follow my 20g SW tank
