    Photo's and description/list of items for sale:
    I purchased this tank 2nd hand in the hopes to start this hobby a while back, but unfortunately never got around to doing so. I've recently purchased a much larger tank & will be starting soon. :thumbup:

    Up for sale is this Boyu TL550 Nano cube. In fair/good condition. No scratches on the glass, however hood has scratches. Would make a great starter tank or QT.

    I embarked on an upgrade on the hood for better lighting & cooling but did not finish, all original parts are however still available.

    Red Sea Prism Skimmer

    Well it depends on what u want to keep, the reason I wanted to upgrade the lights was to keep coral. The standard lights are ok, but I was going to add another globe, or a DIY LED setup, that way u don't have to worry about the tank overheating. You would just need to put the lights backs together, buy a heater, some filter media & you should be good to go. But once again it depends on what u want to keep.

    With the standard lighting u could keep some coral. It's a great starter tank. Also, the skimmer i have here is already an upgrade.

    What will be the best price you can do and can you assist in assembling the lights?

    Seeing as how the price dropped from R1900 in previous post to R1900 in the qouted post , it makes this a real bargain

    @Fred d, as previously mentioned I've dropped the asking price, in doing so I amended the sale amount. If u require further clarity on this kindly pm me. Alternatively if you are merely trolling please refrain as you clearly have no intention of purchasing the tank. FYI I will amend the asking value to its original & have a note placed, will this help?
