    Hi, i added these for as the first stage of my planned move to a SPS dominated reef.
    Other addition were a huge sump and massive Skimmer, both of which are for sale too.

    Both pumps are in immaculate condition and i still have the boxes for each.
    I am selling these as i am no longer doing the upgrade.

    I am looking for R8000 for the 2 or R4000 each.
    Dibs will only be entertained for 72 hours then will go to next in line.

    I forgot the camera at home so will only beable to upload pics this afternoon.

    Thanks,
    Nur ​

    @irie ivan, yes each pump has its own controller. These are the current MP40's W(wireless) ES (eco smart).
    They can work in sync if you like and can be connected to the Radion series of lights as well.

    @maj, Tank 1.8 x .6w x .45h with corner overflow drilled on side pane.
    It is 10mm glass with Glass Slides included for top.
    Braced at the base and the Top.


    Here is the Link to the ad.

    @Express Reef, yes they are. But overkill for my current set up.

    Slmz @hassen & @Goolam not interested, both dibs are rejected. @hassen i reckon if you were quoted R5700 I would go with that deal, you'll get 6 months extra price of mind and at R5700 its cheaper than what u offered me.

    Come on guys this is a steal. I'm not interested in daylight robbery.
    The pumps are in great condition, with boxes and all. This is legit stuff not off a truck so please refrain from giving ridiculous offers. If I don't get my price I have no issue with keeping them.

    Thanks
    Nur

    @maj the tank can always be resized. The glass is what's expensive.

    nur i think you misunderstood me, 5700 each is what they go for new, im sure they will give 10% discount on that priced, so around 5000 each is new

    lol, i meant "Daylight Robbery" in the figurative sense. I am fully aware that this is a great deal as it. If you feel more comfortable paying R1500 per unit for an extra 6 months warantee then by all means do so. I dont see the need to justify why i should sell it for less. Pay what you are willing to pay to the person who is willing to accept it. As stated above in this case i am not willing to accept.

    Each individual is accountable/responsible for his/her own finances. So if another seller is willing to make a huge loss on an item it does not mean that everyone after that person selling the same item needs to sell it at that price.
    Also thos pumps that were sold for R3000 were much older than 6 months also not all were the same model as i have for sale. Most were the older ones, you would need to fork out another R1350 per unit to upgrade it.
    @Express Reef thanks for clarifying current price. More proof that this deal is a "Steal" at this price.

    Yip they are a steal at R4000 each if you compare them to a new ones. Even though I agree with you @Nur, you will wait a while before you sell as guys in here don't want to pay high prices for second hand goods. Saw brand new radions, in the box, going for R6500 the other day, and they retail for R9800 in store.
    Second hand goods don't do well. Good luck with the sale though.
