    The tank is only a 3foot.:frown: I have learnt thus far that it is to small, As usual conned by the local LPS.:tomato: I am busy building a new tank.
    1.5m*600*600 which I hope will be big enough.:hmmmm2:

    Ok I have made some changes to the tank.
    I have taken out the big rocks and put my old two rock features that I bought of my first tank and added an extra canister filter. Hopefully that will work till I can build my bigger tank. Will post pics when I get a new light, my light decided to give up on me. So much for good quality, (another LPS sales pitch).

    find out how old the tank is, chek whether the silicon is wearing out also. What mm is the glass? If its 2nd hand i would say its a bit steep for that price

    Wito - We bought one last month same size, with sump, lighting, stand and heaters for R2000-00 ( see the post on our new 2m tank )
    Check out Gumtree and have patience or offer him R2000 and se what he says.

    Is it a brand name tank? Because then the price is about right.

    If it's just a shop made tank, then it's a bit rough.
