    Some of you may have seen this type of ad before, but here goes :-

    2m Complete Setup
    I'm selling my complete setup. For various reasons, I need to make the space in the house and I am not finding the time to do the necessary tank maintenance, so I have made the difficult decision to get out of the hobby, even if only for a while.

    The setup includes:-

    • Tank 2000 x 600 x 600mm - 10mm glass.
    • Stand - 25mm square tubing - Powder Coated
    • Canopy. Lights separated from the 'saltwater elements' by glass. Three fans in the hood with extraction system to extract the warm moist air out the house. Helps prevent heat buildup in the room.
    • Lights. 2 x 150w MH (Venture). 4 x t8 actinics (1.2m). Two channel digital timer
    • Sump. 1200 x 450 x 400. DSB / refugium in centre compartment. Three heaters (I forget the wattages). Berlin Classic Skimmer with Eheim 1060 feeding it. King 5 return pump. Electronic auto top-up with high level sensor capability. DIY Kalkwasser reactor connected to auto top-up. Carbon "reactor" Aqua Medic. Small UV Steriliser.
    • I guess about close to 100kg of rock. A mixture of locally collected Sandstone, local live rock, ceramic fake rock and imported live rock.
    • External DSB with AM aragonite (+-200mm deep)
    • 2 x Seio 1100's and 1 x Ocean Runner circulating in tank. 2 x SCWDs on return piping.
    • A pile of assorted extras that have been retired from active service at some stage.
    • Livestock - Star polyps - Green ; 2 x rose colrals ; Frogspawn ; Hammer coral ; 3 small toadstool leathers ; zooanthids - green, brown ; Elephant ears - green striped, brown, purple ; 1 x Blue Pete ; 1 x Mandarin ; 1 Carpet Anemone.
    • Water holding containers - 5 x 200l
    • Water transport tank - 1000l
    I'm sure that there is something that I've left out.

    I do not want to sell off items individually, I want the whole thing gone.

    Purchaser to arrange transport.

    Tank is in the Hillcrest / Kloof area in Durban.

    Make me an offer on the lot - First offer that seems reasonable takes it. Opportunity for someone to get the lot for a good price!

    If you do sell seperatly for what ever reason, I would be interested in the following:

    2 x Seio 1100's and 1 x Ocean Runner circulating in tank. 2 x SCWDs on return piping.

    So I have first dibs if you do happen to sell seperatly...

    Hi Des - I agree- it is sad to see so many people leaving the hobby.

    Even though it is off-topic (I apologize for this) I think that the economy has a LOT to do with it....

    In any case - good luck!

    If I could get R6-R7K for the lot, I'd be happy to let it go. (but I'm open to negotiations) There's going to be building happening over where the tank is now, and I can't bear to think about the consequences of a hammer falling on the tank.

    Also, priorities change. I just don't have the time for the tank anymore.
