    Hey guys and girls.

    I am selling my TL550 with diy led hood + drivers and Tunze 9002 skimmer. Return pump and heater included.

    I no longer have use for the tank and is just collecting dust.

    Tank has some scratches, cabinet needs a little bit of a touch up from the water (but nothing serious). I successfully kept sps in this TL550.

    Are you willing to split, if so what will the skimmer sell for?

    No worries, checked for a mate, he said it will not fit. It's a great skimmer. Good luck with the sale.

    @Dane G, how about R1400 for the tank, stand and lid. with drivers. Leds are wired in serie parralel strings so they run of 2 x smaller drivers. at about 80%. They are all Bridgelux leds. total of 35 leds, 32 of them working as I used 3 as splitters. I paid R1500 for the leds alone.

    I removed the magnet so it could fit in the tl550, but I am sure i still have it. Ill take R400 and send it via post office. Let me know if you want it even though it doesn't have the magnet?


    Let me know what you decide.

    Hi Charl,

    One of the reasons i wanted it was because of the magnet mount

    Can you find the magnet mounting ?

    I have seen this TL550 run and in my opinion it is the best one I have seen. All the mods have been done with top quality replacement components. Charl this is a good tank and hope the sale goes well. Sps did well with the LED build and that little skimmer works like a beast.

    It's aurora that wants everything...how about I offer you R900 for the skimmer and if he is happy with offering R900 for the tank without skimmer, which isn't really needed anyway if it's being used as a QT...then everyone wins and you come out with the same amount of cash as if he bought it all for R1800?

    Lol you don't realize how badly I need this 9002...it's the only skimmer that fits a Nuvo 24 by innovative marine...and they are being discontinued so almost impossible to get new...that's why the long waiting period to get one.
