    So sid,
    The bottom price on my skimmer is R1500. If you want it then take it please don’t haggle. It’s a reasonable price. You can see it in place on the bottom pics of the tank.

    I haven’t got the tank cleaned yet but after this weekend I will clean it up and show some pics, I emptied it about three weeks ago and didn’t get round to doing anything, I have some pictures just before it got shut down, It’s the tank, sump, stand, marine ply cabinet and lid, and return pumps (there are two as seen in the pic) with plumbing. No livestock. I will have post the measurements over the weekend. it’s about a 2m by something great condition. Not sure what to ask for it, any reasonable offers will be considered.

    R1600 is a good price for the buyer if it is a TS3. Bit steep for secondhand TS2. You did not confirm if it is a TS2 or TS3. Although it does look like a TS3.

    pump shows its a opt3000. Definitely looks like a ts3. I had two.of these before. also the opt3000 is too powerful for the ts2

    Ok .. so it's 200mm diameter. Not sure if you ment to measure the total hight its 530mm high from bottom to top of cup or 420mm from floor to top of cylinder (bottom of cup). mmm So taller than the TS3 specs you gave RianP.
    the tank is 2m x60cm wide x 62cm deep. sits ontop of a high stand so its a nice eyelevel hight.
