    Full description.
    Hi Guys,

    I have decided to sell my tank, stand and sump with the skimmer, pellet reactor and two Eheim pumps together for R20 000 with all plumbing connecting everything.. This is because they are all plumbed into the system with most of the plumbing done neatly overhead and out of the way.

    The system:

    - The tank was made using black silicone and has a 24mm wall thickness and is 1.5m x 1.2m x 600mm starphire glass with a skinny overflow without any bracing, built by Idol marine. This includes a galvanized stand and sump.

    - The skimmer is a Reef Octopus Super Reef 5000 External Skimmer (RO-RPS-5000EXT). I replaced the pump a few months ago so it is basically new. The skimmer is plumbed from the skinny overflow to the skimmer and from the skimmer to the sump.

    - The pellet reactor is a Reef Octopus Bio Pellet Reactor PBR - 140 also piped from one of the Eheim pumps and back to the sump.

    - The two pumps included is one return pump (Eheim 1262) and the pellet reactor and chiller feed pump (Eheim1260). Both are fully plumbed into the system.

    If I cannot sell everything together them I might decide to split later with the following prices:

    - Idol Marine cube tank, stand, sump and plumbing R16 000
    - RO-RPS-5000EXT Skimmer R5 000
    - PBR - 140 Bio Pellet Reactor R2 000
    - Two Pumps (Eheim 1262, Eheim1260) R2 000

    let me find out what transporting this would cost.
    I will make a decision based on the above.
    Please PM me where in JHB you live.

    No promises though...Just doing my homework before I commit.
    This is the Bargain of the year!

    @Furbz, I used a Profilux and plugbar which turned a RO pump on and off based on my tank level.

    No problem @Ridwaan, will PM you.
