    Hi

    I'm looking for a custom tank 1200x700x600.
    I would like an external c2c overflow.

    Thanks

    I don't know who answered my email, they do have allot of options for what they called their pride tank, but a tad out of what I'm looking for now. They did say I could get a factory tank, but then I'm only able of getting a corner overflow, which is not what I'm looking for.

    But I'll give Lanzo a call, anyone have his contact details.

    If you really want to do things on the lower end of the budget, its best to do it yourself.

    I have, and nope nothing I fancy. I'm also not really that fond of second hand equipment.

    Luckily I'm not in too much of a rush (Rushed the previous tank, and learn t that it's a bad idea), I've already organized a new lighting unit for the tank, and I have all the rest of the equipment (Upgrading my nano tank). Now just too find a new tank.

    Why not just get the factory tank. Just ask them not to fit the overflow. Then build the slimline yourself. Will cost you about 200- 300 for the slimline if you do it yourself. Just make the overflow as long as both parts of the corner. Easy as that.

    Or, just hang around the for sale forum. there was a nice tank in the East Rand a couple of weeks ago. Brand new, perfect system. At an unbelievable cannot say no price.
