    a while back I checked the Junkmail. Had a look at 3 tanks, all 1.8m.

    Be prepared to pay for what you get. If you do not want scratches, do not even open the Junkmail. But some nice bargains are available, if you are willing to do some tank fixes. Other than that, the tanks might not be an option.

    Tank 1, loose euro bracing
    Tank 2, DIY internal filters rubbish.
    Tank 3, no stand, and both sides painted (peeling) and have to be removed. Major chip on one corner.

    At the end I bought a rebuilt second hand tank from one of our sponsors. Well it was R1000 to R1500 more expensive, But no chips, no scratches plus it had a starfire glass front panel.
