    I recently moved from Centurion to Cape Town and had to leave my large fish tank behind with my in-laws, thinking that I would be able to bring the tank with my fish down at some point.

    At this stage it seems very unlikely that this will happen and I want to let it go to someone who wants them more so than my in-laws that were taking care of a massive tank without much of a choice in the matter.

    If I remember correctly the tank is 1.2m long and 0.5m deep. It was homemade by the guy I got it off of so it has insanely thick glass. Just something to keep in mind of with pickup (quite heavy). It has a sump tank (0.85x0.36x0.44m) With bioballs, lava rock and all those good things that go in it.

    There is also a wooden stand cover that was just used to hide the sump, so not the prettiest but it did the job. Other accessories like air pumps, the water pump, backup air pumps with batteries, heaters, salt, medication etc. are all included. The main water pump was also replaced recently.

    The tank has 3 fish that have to go as well. An oscar, green terror and a common pleco.

    I would like R1000 for everything but I am open to discussion within reason. You would also have to go pick everything up in Centurion as I am in Cape Town and won’t be able to help out. I will attach what pictures I have here.

    Hi there Christopher.

    I am interested in the fish. Do you have a price for only the oscar and green terror?

    I would prefer it if the fish go with the tank, just so everything is out of their hair at once.

    We can sort that out. Logistics is the only problem. Janneman & I are not far from each other.
