    hey Quintin looks like the coast to coast is loosing some of it's coating - would Idol be able to repair that ? or is it just stained ?

    Nothing wrong with the coast to coast overflow.
    The tank just needs to be cleaned properly with vinegar to get rid of all the little tube worms and coralline algae that grew on the back glass panel of the tank.

    You are more than welcome to come and inspect the tank for yourself.

    Some pics for you.
    Zero scratches just use a bit of vinegar and a wet sponge and this will all come off....

    I love their tanks and the quality of the build is awesome...
    This little tank has been my jewel for my ponies for quite some time.
    Selling it as I need to clear space in the garage for my next project.
    Zero scratches, marks or anything else on this tank.
    Here is a picture looking top down through the starfire glass to give you an idea on glass quality used in this tank.

    If I had the space to hold onto this tank I would not be selling it.... :(

    Hi Quintin - great price - if I was in JHB, it would be in the back of my car. The chiller in the pic - is that for sale?

    Thanks man.
    Not that chiller but will have it's bigger brother the Hailea HB1000BH up for sale in a couple of weeks. That one can do both hot and cold so you don't need a heater with that unit.

    Don't worry about that - I know of a donkey kart service:blush: I could use - as long as you could get the unit to Germiston - A for away.
