    Hello

    My name is Wesley.

    I stay in Durban.

    I am looking into starting up my own marine tank.

    The forum looks great. I am sure I am going to learn a substantial amount from it.

    Thank you

    Have a look at these. If any of them are local (Durban, PMB and close by I can come have a look at the tank with you if you like. At those prices (<R8500) you should expect having to change the T5 lighting, heater and even if one of the pumps are bust not a bad deal. Main issue is intact tank, no/few scratches, intact stand, functional hood and electronics.

    Red sea max for sale, Pets - Ananzi.co.za

    Good luck and welcome!

    Welcome wesley.
    Why dont you keep an eye out on the for sale threads for a nice tank of more or less the same size as the red sea 250.
    If you can find a well looked after tank with a sump & mh / led lighting, it will take you a lot further than any all in one tank...
    They normally also go for much less than the red sea tanks
