    Photo's and description/list of items for sale:
    Its with great sadness, that I offer this amazing tank to a new lucky owner.
    As with so many stories on the forum, lack of time and constant traveling has resulted in a potentially stunning tank being badly neglected. A power failure while I was away wiped out all the SPS. It’s not fair to the inhabitants, and it’s not what this hobby is all about, so I am selling up everything.

    Ideally as these cases go, I would like to sell it in its entirety, but don’t mind splitting as long as I have a buyer for everything.

    Here goes:

    Idol Marine Tank 1.5m x 1m x 600mm(height)10mm starfire glass
    sump 1.4m x 450mm x 400mm(height)
    Top up tank 80L
    metal stand 800mm high, 50mm square tubing
    All fits snugly into custom built cabinet (sorry about the orange, but my wife insisted it blend into the room, and there is not a wire or cable in sight) – PS, this is not just a little chipboard cabinet, its professionally made and cost way more than the tank [​IMG] R10,000
    Reefoctopus 5000int skimmer - R4,000
    Reefoctopus water blaster 5000w return pump -R1,400
    3 X Vortech mp40w gen2 – R2,500 each
    Aquamedic Aquasunlight unit 2x250w halide,4x54w T5 - R4,000
    +/- 100kg LR – Aptisia infested – R2,000
    2 x Jager 300w heaters-R400
    Reefmaster Evolution 4 stage RO unit with TDS meter -R1,500
    Reefoctopus pellet reactor with Eheim pump – R1,300
    Reefoctopus Carbon reactor – R800
    Profilux II with:
    Two stage dosing pump
    6 Plug Plugbar digitial
    Profilux ATO
    Temp probe – R 7,000

    Or as an incentive the complete system - R30,000

    [FONT=&quot]Never had any issues except for Aiptasia and excessive coralline growth.

    Full tank (in the early days)

    Sorry... for some obscure reason I set pics to private.
    You should be able to see them now. If not... please SHOUT !!

    I'll make a list of all the dibs, offers and update daily.

    Just a reminder, I will only sell off once everything has been accounted for. The last thing I want is an empty baron tank in my lounge :eek:
