    Hi everyone,

    I know this is a longshot but here goes: I am converting my 600L Malawi Cichlid tank to a reef tank. I dont have all the cash in the world to spend so im buying bit by bit. I need lots of things. From T5 lighting to sumps, protein skimmers, hydrometers, sump-pump and lots more. Looking for second hand equipment that works, no rush, will be watching the forums closely.

    Thanks :)

    Between the three sets I have you could get two working sets (one of the sets needs a new ballast, which can be taken from the other set. Then I also have 3-4 bulbs (3 Osram, 1 Giesseman 14000K), used but still good.

    How about everything for R1200?
