    Any chance you'll be willing to sell some fish separately?

    Hi All, Thanks for the enquiries.

    At this point I would really prefer to sell the complete setup. And, to be honest I think the fish are the most valuable part of this setup. If I were to sell all the fish I would expect somewhere between R3,500 and R4,000 for all 13 fish.

    That is an awesome list of fish and I agree the fish are way more valuable than the rest of the hardware. AND if ýou do decide to sell off fish separately count me in as well. I want those Oscars!

    I'd be keen on the setup only, pm me price. I don't need/want any livestock, substrate, decor. Tank and cabinet/stand is all I need.

    If you're willing to sell the livestock and drain the tank I can help carry it down. I don't have additional hands unfortunately ( maybe my wife ).

    Edit: IL bring one of my workers to give me a hand.
    Il happily wait till the livestock are rehomed and the tank is emptied.

    Thanks for the offer, I will keep you in mind. I'm going to let the advert sit for a few more days as is. I'll consider splitting the deal up after a few days

    @David Kusner @Awvince @Whoknows I'd like to buy this tank and it seems il need to take the full package if I do. Are any of you in a position to take these fish off me (possibly this weekend depending on OP and if the deal goes through). Guys I have no need for ANY of the livestock so it would be a take all situation at a good price based on that above expected pricing.

    It's a win win for everyone.

    @Grant Reston not trying to derail and this option is totally up to you as well.

    For anyone commiting to take all the livestock I do not have a place for them so if you bail on your commitment.. you get the point. This would be heartbreaking!
