    Hi guys,
    i am looking to start up this hobby and think a TL550 or RSM 130 would be a good starter.

    I am located in randburg but cant seem to find a stockist or seller, any recommendations or someone wanting to upsize?

    TL-550, 128l. Has a protein skimmer, return pump, built in lights and a moonlight led. Will also let it go with 5kg of dry Kenya rock for an ideal start up kit.

    UPS is to go with tank. 1kVA, on-line double conversion, with 3 x 17ah batteries in a neat external cabinet. On the skimmer and return pump you'll get a hell of a long run time.

    Wanting R4000 for the lot,

    I saw that Jungle Aquatics has a second hand RSM 130 for sale (awesome tank). @bryan
    Can you confirm if it is still there?

    Not sure about those specific ones, but I do have a standard 3ft with Reef Inmates 8xT5 light unit, 2 Seio flow pumps, wooden canopy and a HOB Reef Octo BH-1000 skimmer for R2000 if you are interested?

    Did you steal this tank from our mutual friend? :p Was just about to mention this tank too, but can't remember what is included/excluded.

    Sure, here is a pic of tank with stand, wooden canopy and light unit, the skimmer is still in the cupboard somewhere. I made the canopy a few months ago, and painted 3 layers of waterproof paint, so no water damage. The stand was also Hammerite'd with 3 coats, so no rust. The skimmer and light unit is worth at least the selling price. :lol:
