    Fish tank, lid, and stand

    80x41x36cm – about 120 litres

    Hagen model Tropiquarium 88

    Durban pickup only. Selling to make space for other projects. About 11 years old.

    Condition:
    1) The tank itself (glass, seals, etc.) is in great condition.
    2) The stand has some warping on the surface along the edges directly under the tank. This does not tilt the tank in any way, but looks a little messy. Otherwise a stable stand.
    3) The tank came as a unit, with the electrics for the lights, filter, and heater all being contained in the hood. Lights were controlled by a panel and were automated, but this succumbed to time and moisture. Control of the lights has been converted to a switch. The lights, at present, do not function, and the fault may lie in either the ballast, the starters, or the lights themselves. The heater and filter (pump) have both failed. The rest of the filter (internal) is included if you want to work with it.

    Basically, just the tank and stand are for sale. The rest can be considered a freebie/really cheap extra, for fix/patch-up/upcycle/discard at your leisure. If you get rid of the hood/electrics component, this can be run as a hoodless system, which would look pretty good and which I had considered doing before needing to sell it.

    R350 for whole package neg.
