    90cm rimless Idol Marine Tank plug and play: JHB

    Shipping or Collection or Both?

    Can collect

    Price
    R8000

    Full description.
    Hi guys,

    I have a 90cmx50cmx50cm Idol Marine rimless tank in 10mm glass and black silicone for sale. It comes with the following:
    1. Front glass very little scratches, sides does have a few light scratches but not noticeable
    2. Skinny overflow and returns
    3. All plumbing
    4. Stand, sump, cabinet
    5. Reef Octopus Classic INT 110 protein skimmer
    6. Hailea return pump
    7. Sicce scuba heater (I think 150w)
    8. Odyssea 4x39w T5 unit with ATI bulbs (around 8 months old)
    9. Tunze 6100 flow pump
    10. Seio Prop 1500 flow pump with magnet holder
    11. Algae magnet
    12. Totto fluidized bed filter that can be used to run phos media

    So it is a complete plug and play system, you won't need any other hardware to get it up and running.

    Only hardware for sale, NO livestock for sale.

    Tank will be ready for collection in a week's time, still running like on pics for the next few days until the fish are transferred to their new tank and then I will clean it before it can be collected.

    Price: R8000 for the complete hardware package, not looking to sell separately at this stage, will probably keep tank if no-one is interested in complete setup.
    Collection only near Cresta in Johannesburg

    Photos of actual Items for sale.

    I know its completely off-topic, but what is that purple coral to the left. The big thing that almost takes half the tank?

    That is an Acanthastrea, stings everything that comes close (which is a big part of the tank), also one reason to move the livestock into a bigger tank, can't keep any corals within 10cm of it without getting stung.

    This might be what I have have waiting for, i just need to check space but this is seriously tempting.

    Roughly what is the system volume?

    Cheers

    Cool, let me know if you want to come and have a look, we are just around the corner from Victory Park in Risidale. Can probably include some more random hardware, need to check boxes in shed and garage.

    Epic thanks. Yep, literally round the corner by the looks of things then.

    Just need to double check the space I have in mind for the tank.

    Roughly what is the system volume?

    Cheers

    Probably in the 250-300 liter range in total, I think the display is around 200 liters.

    Looks like this is just a tad too big for location I have in mind, so going to have to let this one go sadly. Was certainly very promising :(.

    Thanks for all the help @hotdog83

    Cheers

    Still available, should be empty by middle next week at the latest. Will throw in some extra stuff that I might have in cupboards and garage like a sealed bag of Ocean Nutrition pellets and some extra test kits with quite a few test left that I have. This is the tank tonight, seems clowns laid eggs yesterday:

    Cool, but will end up keeping it as a coral qt if it doesn't go all at once.
