A tank for sale :(... #1
A custom built fish tank with cabinet and lid. The size of the tank is 53 long x 18 deep x 24 high (inches), it holds approx 350 litres of water and is in excellent condition, it comes with a fluval 405 external filter and gravel. The cabinet has two cupboards and five draws so plenty of storage. I am selling as having to downsize. Asking for ?600 or reasonable offer or I would consider a swap/part exchange for an in excellent condition 200/250 litre complete (must have a cabinet) set up.Great if your thinking of upsizing...

The fish and plants are not included in the sell.

I have put this in the classifieds but do not think it will get seen in there.... hence adding it here, i hope that is ok mods xx

Not one enquiry so I am assuming the price is not right. How much do you think is reasonable? the tank, stand n lid are less than 18 months old. I need to get this sorted so it is one less thing hanging over my head when the time comes.

I'm not sure what's reasonable. The awful trouble is that tanks tend to go second hand for a heck of a lot less than they cost new.

I just had a look for anything remotely similar on eBay and checked only complete listings to make sure I could see if they sold.

A 350 litre Rena was the nearest I could find. Stand etc not so nice as yours, but was ?800 new and sold for ?122

This custom made 800 litre tank with all equipment included was on buy now or best offer at ?450, only received one offer and didn't sell.

This 4ft (smaller and not as nice as yours) went for ?112

Won't be able to swap but I do have a 240 litre tank just sat doing nothing cause I haven't been able to do much. It's a fluval roma 240 in black with cabinet.

Pretty sure the only problem is one of the doors is a bit stiff?
I can't see you...but I know you're there

Good luck with it!

Thanx for all ur wishes.

Miss pril, that looks like a fab tank (had look online) sadly I can't think of getting a smaller tank until this one has gone (no room to put another tank), but Thanx anyway. You should set it up yourself it would be a good looking home for some lovely fish.

Psymon n onyxia go on ya know it'll be worth the lynching

O just put measurements into volume calculator n it's saying it's more like 375 litres oops sorry.
