    Are you sure on the dimensions? Is it really one and a half meter front to back?

    Hey Guys, all live stock is sold, I have some hardware such as skimmers for sale, but that is it.

    Riaan - it is diamond shaped so if you look at the picture, yes the back side is 1.5 m and the right hand side is 2m then it curves in at front as can be seen from left pane 1.4m, front pane 1.4m then I think the little part on right is around 0.2m but you welcome to come check.

    Hi Tank is empty and being dissasembled, but will see what I can do tonight for you. Sump is standard, fits my bubble blaster in the left compartment, enough middle space for a DSB and on right I have two big pumps returning the water to the tank.

    The main tank is brased.

    Hi

    888 and Ridwaan , Attached is some pics of the top of tank and the sump, appologies if it is a bit dirty, as mentioned, we are dissasembling the tank. The tank has been running smoothly with not major issues for at least 5 years.
