    I doubt everyone on here is up to date with the problems I have been having but after my meeting last night with fellow reefers in Johannesburg I am considering starting over.

    Before the admins crucify me again for discussing something which is not allowed to be discussed is it ok for me to ask fellow posters if they have a spare +- 1000mm to 1200mm tank setup they are not wanting anymore and how much would I be looking at buying it for?

    The problem is I have a fresh water tank and every which way I turn there is something new which I cannot change. I am looking at a tank in a cabinet of some kind which holds its own sump and can stand in a lounge / dining room area and still look smart and not drown out the TV or radio with the sound of running water.

    Like I said this is just an idea and I am not going to merely throw money at my problem but if I do not have the right tools then how can I succeed in what I want :(

    are you looking for a FO tank or reef tank?

    i have a 5ft if you interested , although its not the prettiest of tanks it has potential if you are willing to work at it.

    More than likely to start FO but after a year or so who knows but I would like to have those options and not be told "no sir your SunSun has only enough space for 3 tubes".

    hmm i still have my shop tank for sale if you are interested but i think you would redo the cabinet if you want it to look nice in your living area.

    pm me and we can negotiate a deal as it needs a bit of work as far as the cabinet is concerned

    lights and skimmer etc is fine for the tank and i kept and grew even difficult species in the tank.
