    I have one, its awesome, you just need a chiller for it here in S.A, +- R14k for the tank and another 3-4K on a chiller.

    Its in my opinion the ultimate plug and play tank.
    Its designed to house almost any type of fish and coral.
    A complete setup including fully stocked with fish and coral can set you back as much as R25k.

    BUT for that type of money you could have a whole lot bigger and to some extent better custom setup and still fully stocked.

    Research a bit more until you are certian what you want to keep and then make your decision.

    They are quoting R19k because they do not normally do the Red Sea Max range, there for it must be out sourced.

    Rather look in the sponsors section for sponsors who are RSM dealers.Chances are that with courier costs included, you'll still be saving atleast 3 to 5 grand easilly!!
