Aqua One MariSys 240 (175L) Marine Aquarium
Complete with fish, coral and critters
The ideal beginners tank as all inhabitants are hardy!
Over £1000 of equipment and livestock included in the sale
This aquarium was bought in January 2009 and has been lovingly filled over the past 15 months. Unfortunately we are relocating and moving into a rented house with no pets allowed so we are selling the COMPLETE SYSTEM with all the accessories you need!
This was our first marine tank and we chose all hardy fish and coral in order to keep it as simple as we could. We have got into a routine of feeding the fish flakes in the morning and frozen food in the evening, doing a 25L water change every weekend and adding marine additives (taking 10 mins), and topping up with reverse osmosis water as needed. The filter self-primes so once you have switched it off and changed the water you simply switch it back on and walk away - much simpler than the fresh water tanks we have had in the past! We have been pleasantly surprised how straight forward it has been.
We buy our water ready-to-use from Maidenhead Aquatics in Havant who are happy to loan water containers, livestock containers and can even care for your livestock in their tanks while you go on holiday or move house! There is room in the tank for more fish and corals of your choice, and the live rock can be arranged any way you like.
