New Setup #1
I'm looking for a 240l/4ft tank setup (tropical) but tank, hood with light, heater and filter (ideally external) only, no cabinet and finding it hard to find a decent complete package or where to buy all seperate. Can anyone suggest anything? Been looking for a while and the only thing i've come across is the Juwel Rio 240 but it has a internal filter. Any advice would be great.

Thanks.

Re: New Setup #2
EBAY and Amazon are your friends, lots of second hand, Also do Google search, otherwise, companies like ND Aquatics can fit you with one, or...why won't you build it yourself? Decide on the dimensions and glass thickness and it's all done. Very easy, years ago I built my own including the unit and it never leaked.

I run a Rio 180 with an external filter. The previous owner had removed the internal filter to free up space. If you get a second hand tank it may be something to consider.

You may already be sorted out with a set-up by now but, if not, this https://www.completeaquatics.co.uk/aqu ... uarium-tanks-and-cabinets may provide inspiration.
