    Hi Guys,

    Time to shut down my tank sadly, its been running stable for 5 years but due to a move it has to go.

    1x 6ft Tank with curved edges (Some scratches but a light polish will clean it up perfectly)
    1x Solid steel stand wrapped in removable dark stained pine panels (front and sides removable)
    1x C1600 Dophin
    1x Eheim classic 150 i think (works but using the pipe fittings of the modified fluidized filter)
    1x modified fluidized filter (used as pre-filter with micro filter pads in, works sooo well)
    1x 2kg Co2 + regulator, bubble counter/diffuser and Co2 level check
    1x 5kg Co2
    1x Eheim skimmer
    1x 4 (30x30x35cm) sumps (with glass lids) - individual chambers with pvc piping (and Union joins), new big pump, micro filter socks. did not get it running as yet, not time but was built by Derek @ fish fantasy world.

    a few pumps (100lph-2500lph), heaters (50w-300w), 2 dual wavemakers (not fancy ones), tons of fittings, spare diffusers, new large filter sheets (2 blue and white)...

    Loads of great wood pieces (30cm - 1m) and at least 10 pieces of dragonrock from 4cm to 1kg+ 20cm
    plenty large and petite anubius, large amazon sword,large red lotus, crypts

    2 breeding angels, 4 tiger barbs, some SAE, 1 CAE, 3 Rams, some tetras, Red tail shark, 2 Ancestris, clown and polkadot loach, 2 sterbai cory's and a few fat otto's.

    +- 15 Amano's incl large gravid female
    2x large bamboo shrimp (10cm +-) - These are not easy to find!

    Guys i want this to go as a setup as these guys have all lived together for a long time.
    Tank is still running.

    Price is 10K

    Really difficult to get pics of fish in the tank guys. It's not small and it's pretty well planted. IL pull some fish out this week and get pics.. Il put them in drilled containers in the tank.
