    Hi guys, i got a juwel Rio 240 up for sale. The unit is 2 weeks old, never seen fish. It has a 2 year warranty with juwel and i have original invoive from pet shop. The unit goes for R6800 new.

    As said its practically new, but not expecting to sell it as a new unit. So starting at R4500.

    here is a pic of what it looks like...

    No, they just have an internal corner filter, you can easily drill and put overflow or just use a hang on unit, they have 2x T5 lights, but if you run marines you need to get the right tubes (agents only - as they don't use std lengths, but are good).

    Would give my left one for it but the minister of finance has put a R2K limit on the tank budget so am going to have to search for a Lido 120 or the like. Good luck, hope you come right

    I'll run it past the minister when she gets back (on a business trip to Zim), thanks. What needs to be done to it / added to it for it to be suitable for marine?

    it was given to my as a trade in. a customer bought it, but then changed his mind and went with another tank. its brand new, still has a 2 year warranty by juwel.

    As for the marine part, if you wanted to you could drill a hole and add a sump, but i know of a few people that just run it as amrine with a canister filter. other than that i think its a perfect setup. if you go up you will see a link to the juwel website, you can read all about it there...

    Sorry, minister has a very valid point - we're still paying off our honeymoon. Unfortunately the tank budget strictly max R2K. Thanks for the offer though
