    Hi All.

    It's on a rather sad note that I join the forum.
    I've had a marine tank for 4 years now but I'm leaving the country in a few weeks and unfortunately marine tanks is not something shipping companies will move ;)

    I hope to one day start up a tank again as both my husband and I have really enjoyed our tank.

    Anyway, the person who was supposed to buy our tank has dropped us and no longer wants the tank.

    If there is anyone who would be interested in buying the tank or perhaps know of anyone please pm me. We would entertain any offers. The tank has to be moved this weekend. If we don't get any offers then we will be forced to break up the tank and sell what we can. :(

    Here are the specs:
    It a 800l AquaH20 tank with the curved front corners.
    There is about 13Kg of live rock in the tank.
    The fish are:
    1 x Powder Blue Tang
    1 x Yellow Tang
    1 x Dragonette Blenny
    1 x Jumping Bean
    1 x Pecular clown

    Filtration consists of:
    Sump with Scentered glass rings (two chambers)
    One chamber with crushed coral
    One chamber with Aragonite for PH stability
    UV filter
    Skimmer
    8000l/h pond pump on sump
    Squidy wave maker
    One 2500l/h power head

    Heaters:
    2 x Jaeger 750w heaters

    Lighting:
    4 x T5 lights with 45w ballasts and gullwing reflectors

    The deal includes one 5 stage Reverse Osmosis system.

    Thanks Jaak.

    It's been one of the toughest parts about leaving :(

    Due to our time constraint we were thinking in the region of about R3000 but we will consider all offers.

    BLUE - I want to wish you a VERY WARM WELCOME to MASA. Even under these circumstances. Even though you are selling your tank now - I REALLY hope that you won't leave MASA. You don't HAVE to leave MASA behind as well. We can always help you during your next wonderful setup! We have a few members who have emigrated to New Zealand, Canada, Norway, UK, etc.... but - even though they temporarily stopped the hobby, they always came back.

    I am sure that you should get offers on the tank. Good luck with the move.

    Thank you everyone for the warm welcome and support.
    I've sold the tank to Goby. I'm sure everyone here at MASA will give him all the support he needs.
