Hi guys

I have finally decided to exit the marine hobby completely. I just no longer have the time and will to give my tank the effort it deserves. This may just be a break, or it may be permanent, we will see.

Anyway, I have a number of items for sale.

1. Equipment for sale NOW:

a. Aquamedic Peristaltic pump: R150 *** SOLD ***
b. Aquamedic pH controller (2001C) + electrode: R1600
c. Tunze skimmer (rated 1200l): R500 *** SOLD ***
d. Old tank (600 x 600 x 425, all 10mm, corner overflow), galvanised stand and sump, all in need of a clean: R500 *** SOLD ***

2. Main tank setup which I would like to sell as a UNIT:

a. Tank: 600x450x450, built by Idol Marine, black silicon, 6mm starphire glass viewable sides, 10mm back and base, internal overflow, drilled for closed loop
b. Cabinet: solid wood (cypress), wired for electrics incl distribution box, includes extractor fans
c. Sump: custom, fittings for 12v auto topoff (2 switch)
d. Closed loop: Aquamedic Ocean Runner 3500, feeding Oceans Motions Squirt 4-way wave maker
e. Auto topoff: custom 12v 2-switch unit, fed by minjet 404
f. Additional circulation pumps: 2 x Seio M620
g. Return pump: Aquarium Systems Newjet 1700
h: Live rock
i: Livestock: 2 x clowns, a few hermits and snails
j: Livestock: 3 frags pincushions, 4 frags luminous finger leathers, 1 monti
k: Test kits

All the above: R6000
It really does not make sense to separate out the components above, especially the closed loop/wavemaker, as the setup was designed around this.
However, if all/most of the stuff can go, I will consider selling off in parts.

3. Equipment that can either go with the tank, or afterwards:

a. Reeftek TS1 skimmer: R700 *** RESERVED UNLESS TAKEN WITH TANK ***
b. 2 little fishies phosphate reactor + minijet 404: R500
c. Ebo Jager 150w heater: R100 *** RESERVED UNLESS TAKEN WITH TANK ***
d. Aquamedic Ocean light 150+ (150w MH, 2 x 24W blue T5, only a few months old): R2900

Reasonable offers on the more expensive items may be considered.

All ex-Durban, transport arrangements by buyer.

Post here / PM me if interested in anything. Preference for all items goes to the person who takes the main unit (2).

Pictures to follow below once my camera is charged :)

Ok Dean, the pump and skimmer are yours.

The heater will have to wait - it's in use at the moment and is one of the items where I should give preference to someone who takes the whole tank :)

Mekaeel, the TS1 is still in use on the current tank, I can't sell it until the current tank is gone. You are first in line though :)

In terms of the old tank, sure, give me a call. You do realise it's 600x600 footprint though (425 high)?

Yes they're in good condition.
The offer is low considering the new price, so I'll wait and see.
