    Hi Guys

    My old Tank is for sale. I bought it last November. It is in excellent condition. You won't find a tank like this again as they are no longer being imported.

    Measurements: 1520 L X 560 W X 450 H (front) - Rounded corners. 12mm Glass (This tank is HEAVY! Heavier than normal 12mm tanks of this size!!!)

    Comes with a cabinet which I never used. The cabinet has a small chunk out the front that I'm sure can be fixed. Please note the steel stand in the photos is NOT INCLUDED in the deal.

    Will throw in the small feeder pump and fitting I made to pump water from the tank to the paludarium. The water then overflows into the tank. Really stunning!

    I drilled holes in the back to accommodate canister pipes.

    Reason for selling: Sadly I don't have the space to keep it. It was too shallow for my Discus.

    PRICE: R2500 (including Light hanging kit)
    (I paid R5000 for it new)

    And some photos:

    This is an old pic of what I did with the paludarium section.

    We decided to fly this year.

    Bump.

    Guys, I have had a series of people dropping me PM's regarding this sale and all have "Promised" or "Guaranteed" they will be taking the tank then disappear, not to be heard from again, no PM saying "I'm sorry but I'm out" nothing!!! I am a very easy going person but I find this behaviour rude!

    So please only respond to this sale, if you have consulted your finances, or your significant other, or your dog or cat or whomever about it first! And if you do happen to "guarantee" you will take the tank and some unforeseen circumstance occurs, please have the decency to drop me a PM, don't just disappear!

    I'm very tempted... It would make a great holding tank. If it's not gone by new year, I may just bite.
