    Problem is that it's currently set up as a freshwater with koi in it..
    1.Do you guys think it would be safe for a lil reef at some stage??
    2.Can anyone id the manufacturer of this tank for me?
    3.What kind of light do these things come with?


    Pretty pretty please...

    Hi Dude! What are the dimensions? Does it have a sump? The lighting system would most probably needed to be replaced even if you just gonna run a FOWLR system. I think this is a JEBO tank...seen them somewhere?!?!? Anything is possible!!!

    looks very thin vs its height.... will make for some challenges with scaping if that is the case

    if it has been used for FW then you need to be 100% sure there has been no dosing with copper based medicine.... copper =death for a reef

    is there some sort of overflow? cant see one in the pic.

    lighting will definately need a serious upgrade for that water depth

    just my 2c worth

    anything is possible, but it would not be an ideal tank, depending on price, might be worth buying something designed for marine.

    Keep on checking the for sale section, great bargains come up quite often. I would avoid this tank.
