    Due to us scaling down and moving into an apartment, I need to find a new home for my tank - with all its occupants. A very sad reality for me to process, but such is life.

    The tank is a 1.5 meter, 400(ish) liter tank. I have had the tank for the past 3/4 years and recently downgraded from high tech planted to low tech.

    The tank comes with a stand, the outside of the stand needs some care, (has been built up around metal frame with palet wood) but will look lovely once it has received some TLC.

    Some of the fish in the tank:
    Ottos
    2 x SAE's
    1 Albino male Ancistrus (The King)
    Harlequins
    Gouramis
    Danios
    Mollies
    Loaches
    Rosy barbs
    Rummy noses

    Plants:
    Many crypts
    Anubia nana's (many)
    Java fern, needle leaf
    Riccia
    The big plant.. don't know the name.

    Many cool pieces of wood that I have collected over the years.

    Extras -
    Empty CO2 canister
    2 x Canister filters; Dophin and Fluval
    Flourish bottles; some Excel, Trace, etc. and ferts. ('Laxative' phosphate.. some dirk se druppels..)
    Half a bag of aquasoil amazonia
    4 x lights and fixtures, with reflectors. 2 are mounted at the moment, the others are in storage, but I'll give them along.

    The catch is, you need to arrange your own transport & containers for the tank, fish, plants etc.

    I'm in Stellenbosch.

    What are the specs of the glass? How thick? How is it braced? Scratches?

    Glass; some scratches yes, thickness is 7mm, silicone. The tank has survived 4 moves with us if that means anything.

    You maybe want to sell the male ancistrus separately? I have females in the need of a male.

    Don't know what a fair price is. R100? Think I bought the small ones for R40/50. Was a while back.
