    Hi there.

    Well basically I have been reading up on getting a reef set up going for a long time now and I decided it's time. I know there is no such thing as a starter set up but I am basically looking for everything I need just to start out with. Fairly large tank also since it's easier to keep and also can add harder to keep things as I learn more. I have a budget of about 10k'ish. I haven't found any proper online stores or any stores in my area that is cheap enough or has the variety so I am trying forums :) I live in Centurion btw so the closer the better

    The package I will offer you will include the following:
    1x Tank (65x65x50 cm tank, rimless in star fire glass, with skinny overflow and bottom drain)
    1x stand for the tank(not 100% sure on the height but it should be in my thread)
    1x sump ( will include all the plumbing etc.)
    1x JNS SK-2 Skimmer( excellent but I did have a few problems in the beginning which were all sorted out.)
    1x 400o lph return pump( again with all the plumbing)
    1x Ecotech marine radion LED lighting( provide flexibility and high performance as your can keep any coral under this light)
    1x JNS media rector( not needed but as you advance they become helpful)

    The only vital thing that you would have to get equipment wise is in tank flow.

    All this that I have listed is probably, at current prices, worth over R16000 easily.

    Looking for your budget of R10k

    Thanks for all the replies everyone :) basically as big as possible with a budget of 10k. I obviously will go a bit over that for the few extras ill need like rock and sand etc but I will need the essentials first :)

    As for the 2 offers so far. Ill have to think about this since the one is totally complete but half the size of the one without lighting :/ you guys are making my brain putty lol

    If I were you @DazedSa I would snatch up @Ridwaan tank ASAP. It is by far the best by far the better deal with the lights added and plus I believe he is based in JHB and I'm in KZN. TAKE IT NOW!!!!!

    Hi Bud,

    I can offer you two options.

    First is a juwel Rio180 with skimmer included and t5 lighting with reflectors.it Is a nice basic setup to get you started.only used it for 6 months so is in good nic. Looking for around 3000 and can throw in some free live rock. Brand new this is over 7000

    Second option is a 1200 x 900 x 500 rimless starphire tank with 12 mm glass with skinny overflow and returns. TSR sump and plumbing included as well as stand and cabnet doors and return pump. Looking for around 8k mark. Only used for about 12 months
    Reason for selling is I want a bigger tank for my tangs.

    Let me know. Cheers
