    Notes:
    I unfortunately had to shut this system down in 2008-2009 when I moved overseas but decided to leave it in the house for when I returned home, just incase!
    After a few years I realized that I may not be coming back to SA as soon as I'd initially thought and so have decided to sell it off much to my mothers joy! (That's her dining room its sitting in!)

    All the equipment is working 100% and when we shut the tank down, every peice was taken apart, cleaned in fresh water, dried, reassembled and then put into storage and should last for many years to come! (Good ol' Aquamedic :thumbup:)

    The tank is also in great condition (other than needing a serious clean!); there are very few scratches, all the seals are still intact and its still in 100% working order! (Good ol' Idol Marine :thumbup:)

    I'd prefer to sell the tank as a complete setup (Its designed to work with the above components), so if you want to take it all at once I'll be happy to accept a slightly lower offer for quick and complete sale.

    Any questions etc etc please don't hesitate to ask! I've been stalking the boards ever since I got home so you can expect quick replies!

    Thanks,
    Steve ​

    @chas84: Thanks! Ya, it did an awesome job hey :)
    Yip, the angled glass is awesome as it gives better colour of the corals/clams ect that look the best from the top, just without having to peer through a rippled water surface.

    UPDATE:

    Everything was bought this afternoon except for the MH lighting.

    @Sallie: would be happy to sell you the lighting and ship if your happy to pay for the shipping.
    I'm assuming I'd be shipping to Rondebosh East? If you get a quote and I get a quote we can go for the cheapest option if you'd like?
    I'll give you the total weight and dimensions later if your serious about buying?
    Or aquamedic has all the details :)
