Hi All,

Sad times but I don't have the time on my hands this tank deserves and its cost me a arm and a leg in the short time I've been into marine so who ever gets this has a bargain.

I'm not willing to split anything at all and would rather it goes as a job lot to one buyer who can save a packet and have a great tank and everything needed to get off the ground so here goes all that's for sale........

The above stock is worth £700 plus alone.

I have left off the above list quite a few bits and bobs but who ever buys this will have a bargain because if you add up each item at its 2nd hand price the whole lot above comes out at over £3397 so £2500 is a steal.

Buyer pays in cash before collection.
Buyer collects.
Will try and help with lifting work time permitting.

Please see my thread HERE

The tank I purchased off Andy Price and he purchased it off Tangaroa a member here on this forum.

Questions just ask and more pics can be provided.

Regards and thanks

The tank is worth £500 on its own and that's without the 3 Vortech's at around £540 and the 2x LED lights at £600 those three alone come to £1640 so add on top what the rest would cost you end hand and its well over what I'm asking for a quick sale.

Ok here's an opportunity for someone.

What would you pay as an absolute maximum for all of the above for collect and cash.

If I like the price and you have the van, man power and cash then it's all yours.



You might get what your asking for on eBay? Sadly though if you look at second hand tanks they go for peanuts since people view this hobby has a luxury and not a necessity, given the economic climate folks don't really have that amount of cash laying around.

I recently saw a 6 month old opti-white 8ft tank with oak stand get reduce from £1000 to under £400. This system when setup was worth well over 5k.



Its not eating or drinking and all setup here running like a dream so if it does not go then it will stay where it is.

But thanks for the info.


This has been up now for 2 weeks Sunday coming and with no firm offers and considering its not eating or drinking I have decided to keep the setup and improve the system.

If anyone comes forth with funds then I'll think it over.



Hi M8,

The tank is 3rd hand and was purchased new by a member here called Tangaroa and he had it from South West Marine he received it on Thursday 30th December 2010 so the tank is 3 years old in 2 days time, the glass is 10mm opti-white.
