    Hi Guys. It’s with a sore heart that I have decided to sell my pico tank.

    This tank is probably (not confirmed) the most advanced Pico tank is south africa, (if not worldwide… lol) & can run unattended for weeks when everything is set up correctly.



    TOTAL HARDWARE REPLACEMENT COST R26330+ (corals worth additional R2000+)

    WORTH TOTAL R28330+

    SELLING FOR R8750 not neg (all items listed below including livestock)
    (cash only) (EFT will be accepted if paid before tank is collected)

    Reason for sale – I haven’t been able to properly care for the tank due to work project last couple months.

    Only serious buyers!

    Here is what everything would costs new.
    -Maxspect razor nano 60W LED light unit R3500
    -Reef Angel plus analog with WIFI unit & spare temp probes (Includes complete standard package) R4600
    -WIFI Webcam (used to observe tank wirelessly.) R850 (Brand new, never used.)
    -Skimz sm121 skimmer with upgraded waveline dc pump with pinwheel...R3000 + R1500
    -Eco vortech mp10 +- R2700
    -Diy glass tank R450
    -DIY glass sump + topup tank R750
    -Granite top R1150
    -DIY stand with wheels R1300
    -Wooden panes R450
    -DIY auto topoff +-R650 (Very reliable with backup cutoffs)
    -Coolworks Iceprobe With own temp controller. R2000+
    -Professional Temperature controller R450 (Controls Eheim heaters, & cooling fans + temp failsafe)
    -Eheim Jager 50w heater R250+
    -Eheim Jager 150W heater R300+ (Not installed)
    -Eheim Jager 200W heater R350+ (Not installed)
    -Dymax vortech cooling fan R200
    -Diy baserock R400 (white portland cement + aragonite aggregate) (Really nice shaped)
    -Stainless steel light unit stands R180 (Mounted into granite slab)
    -2x 600l dymax return pumps R350
    -500ml nitraguard titanium +-R500
    -500ml Nitraguard +-R500 (Will add additional unused cubes)


    I also have a ton of spare pumps, accessories, testing kits, drums, DIY dosing chemicals (calcium, magnesium, alk.) etc etc etc that I will give to buyer.

    (Oh, & tank has 4x frags of NUCLEAR DEATH PALYTHOAS included)

    Buyer would have to bring own buckets for water & livestock, & all would have to go in one trip. (can easily be transported on a bakkie… & will be really easy to get running again…)

    Tank has been running since November 2013 & all parameters are very stable.

    Was built with a very nice skinny overflow tank runs very quiet!

    Current dosing is done manually to prevent overdosing in such a small tank.
    Alk: 15-20ml/week
    Cal: 10ml/week
    Mag:10ml/week
    Trace elements: once a month as required.

    The ATO tank is big enough to last +-3-4 weeks when full, so really easy to maintain.
    Sump needs to be cleaned about every 2 months.
    Skimmer cup gets cleaned every 4 weeks…

    Sorry, due to me not having the time, I can only sell everything to one buyer.
    (Ice Probe is anyhow drilled through sump glass, so sump would be useless without the probe installed @hansiemyburgh)

    Hi @shaun777, unfortunately not. Entire setup weighs close to 100kg's+, so would make courier very difficult, & I really really don't have time to package the system. + additional items that I didnt specify is another 3 boxes full...

    If you can arrange with someone to collect for you & take down to EL, I will help to do the "wrapup" etc, otherwise, no...

    First of all this is a fantastic system.
    I know you are selling the system as a whole but would you consider splitting all livestock in the tank? And if so for how much. And dibs if price is right.

    Guys, tank is still available!
    Included in the sale is 2x large boxes filled with working hardware. (Pumps, heaters, magnet cleaners, DI resin worth R2800, 5kg carbon dioxide absorption media(to increase PH in a system by removing co2 from skimmer intake), & tons of other equipment.)

    I will keep the tank up for sale as a single unit, & if not sold by next week, I will consider breaking up, & selling seperately!

    Tank is in great condition, & will be perfect for anyone looking for a high tech - low maintenance system that will look stunning.

    Oh, did I mention, the whole tank is on wheels, & can be pushed around as required...

    Apologies @Reefhead, forgot to mention the size.
    The actual tank is 400x210mm x 220deep(water level) (15l water) + 20-25l in the sump.

    So total system volume is 35-40l

    Topup tank volume: 23l (enough to last +-4weeks)
