Hi

After about three months soul searching I finally decided to sell my fresh water fish tank.

I am moving next month on the 15th of February and building a large seawater tank in the new house. I also have been travelling a lot and will be travelling a lot this year. I am simply not having enough time to maintain my planted tank at the level I want to and the seawater one does not seam to make any progress.

For a background and pictures of the tank see:

Some “sales” rules:


Ideally I would like to sell the tank as a working unit with the plants and fish and I would give preference to anyone who buys it as a unit.

I will advertise the separate items as well, but should someone buy it as a unit even after I confirmed the sale of a separate item, everything goes to the person buying it as a unit.

I can not “dispose” of any item until the live stock (fish and plants) have found a new house/tank.

Equipment description

Aquarium (R3500)
Tank type: All glass 5mm, with bracing and build in side filter
Tank size: 150cm x 70cm x 58cm (580l)
Tank stand: ply wood, with three doors, shelves (no canopy)
Pump: EMI 2400l/h
Heaters: 2 x 300w
Filter material Porous stone, and various layers of floss mats

Fish and plants: (Free to and approved home)


The tank has been setup three years ago, with a large central wooden (two pieces stacked on top of each other) feature with lot of nooks and caves. The bottom of it forms a large cave, sheltered from the front with some peep holes in it, and swim trough on every side. A second wooden piece forms a closed cave at the extreme right of the tank. A third piece in the front right provides another cave.

The substrate is made up of porous plant clay gravel (got it at Hilfox, comes in a “red” plastic bag, forgot the name) in specific areas, covered with a smooth small pebble gravel. The back of the tank is built up into a terrace, I have used cork strips to stabilise the terraces.

In terms of fish:

• 3 x cardinals
• 5 x rummy nose tetras
• 1 x black ghost knife fish L
• 1 x baby whale adult
• 1 x Synodontis ocellifer XL
• 1 x Spotted Talking Catfish XL
• 1 x Cory davidsandsii
• 2 x khuli loach
• 1 x spaghetti eel
• 2 x Bolivian Rams (booked)


Pls note that some of the bottom feeders are nearly impossible to catch.
