    Hey people,

    Selling my cichlid tank that's 2 years running.
    Very healthy cichlids that I have grown attached to. But time is come to sell up as I built a 5ft reef system.
    Tank 915 X 375 X 650.
    Built in 3 chamber sump.
    Steel stand. Tank has black plastic trim done by aquarium centre in Forest Hill.
    I inserted my DIY 3D rock background. Boulders taken of Ballito coastline.

    Livestock: (can't remember scientific names)
    1x Turquoise African Jewel 10cm
    1x Convict 10cm stunning
    1x Venustus 12cm
    1X Bumble bee 12cm
    1x OB peacock 8cm
    1x fire peacock hybrid 8cm
    1x blue Ahli 6cm
    1x yellow lab 8cm
    2x yellow zebra 8cm
    2x breeding pair cobalt blues 10cm
    2x Flame back haps ( unsure exactly)

    1 awesome maturing Tropheus Duboisii. Blue head, hello band behind head.

    Need this system to go soon. Make offers, to collect.

    Are you willing to sell the livestock separately?
    @JacoP is busy building up a Malawi tank. Think he will be more than interested.

    I should see JacoP this Sunday, will give him this info.
    But I think they are a bit too big for the ones he already bought.
