    Hardware for sale
    Thread title:
    2m tank, stand, sump FREE ​
    Location:
    Cape Town ​

    All sales to be conducted on the thread.
    • I agree
    Photo's and description/list of items for sale:
    I have a tank, stand and sump available for free. All or nothing, first come, first served, pickup only. It will just fit in a bakkie, but a trailer would be easier.

    Tank: 2000 x 460 x 900
    Stand: 2000 x 560 x 900
    Sump: 1700 x 430 x 400

    What's the catch? Well, the base of the tank is cracked, one of the braces is cracked, the glass is old, so it's not crystal clear and the stand needs a good lick of paint. The tank and stand are low, so you'll probably be looking down into it anyway. It'll make a great frag tank or a refugium. ​

    Rob,

    To be clear what is the Height of the tank 460?

    Is the Base crack look to be an easy repair or would you suggest a full replacement?

    Which brace is cracked?

    Im about to order glass (monday) so I can build my sump and refugium, so pending replies this could be a decent alternative for me.

    Yes, height is 460. The base is too cracked to repair, IMO. All the pieces are there, so you might be able to use a lot of silicone but if it were up to me I'd just replace it.

    The front lengthwise brace is cracked and should be replaced.

    Ok Cool, thats not terrible news, it is after all free. I just wanted to be clear on the extent of the repair.

    Im finalising the sump design and if the measurements I need are similar to your dimensions Ill be in touch. Im not placing Dibs as someone may need this far more then me.

    If I was to cash in on this, could I strip it on site? Would make me more comfortable RE the transport challange

    You mean cut the tank up? Yeah, sure. It'll be a 5 minute job, so why not.

    Hi Rob,

    As I mentioned in the PM going to pass on this. I agree with RR this is going to be a great opportunity for someone else.

    Cheers
