Weeelll I am upgrading. I thought I would go dramatic. New things in the pipeline. I have "outgrown" my 4ft and I need to sell this tank in order to upgrade.
I could never quit totally ! Come on guys I have been bitten by the marine bug.
If anyone knows or wants it I am willing to even do a repayment option.

Hey I was going for the super dramatic approach here, Gimme a break.
New tank is 1800 x 800 x 800. (or near enough to about 100mm)
Been buying equipment when ever I can. Got a collection going now.
Chiller, Carx, Skimmer, lights, corals, fish etc etc

So it is up to all of you to sell my tank ! ! !

Getting the new tank from a petshop in my area. I know the owner so he is just charging me for the glass and silicone.
It is still quite expensive though.
I need to post some pics of my current set up before it comes down.

If you want the name I could PM you. I don't want to step on any sponsors toes !

The owner is going to build it for me. Trust his building skills more than mine.

Tell me about your tank... I am interested.

How old, what is the quality of the glass (scratches etc.). You say it is 600 high? How thick is the glass? (600 high seems deep for a 4ft made of 6mm glass).

Hi Pterois.
The tank is good condition. There are a few scratches on the front glass. I need to replace the side overflow before I sell it.

The Pump is nothing too special, I think it is an AquaH20. The heater is also a AquaH20.
Plumbing for the upflow is 25mm and outlet is 32mm.

Glass is 6mm, I also thought there could be a problem but there is no bowing at all.
The stand is hot dipped galvanized so you will never have to worry about any rust.
The sump has 3 compartments.

The canopy is pine and varnished with a light varnish.

I have developed a health phobia about scratches (probably as my tanks are quite scratched). What sort of overflow is it? Do you have pics?

Does it get filled about about 500 mm? Stand sounds great though...
