  Custom built Fish Tank with hood and stand - 415 litres - 450

Description: Hello,

Due to me moving house and lack of my space (girlfriends decision) I'm having to sell my pride and joy. Up for sale is a custom built fish tank made for my alcove in the living room. The tank was initially built by and cost me 730. With all the equipment I spent over 1600. Everything is included in the setup, which will enable you to focus on choosing what fish you would like! This would make an excellent Christmas present, I'm genuinely gutted to be letting go of this, but unfortunately there is no space!

The complete dimensions:

Stand: 83cm (H) X 110.5cm (W) X 52.5cm (D)

Hood: 15.5cm (H) X 110.5cm (W) X 52.5cm (D)

Aquarium: 80cm (H) X 105cm (W) X 49.5cm (D) 12mm glass thickness. The colour of the glass is blue (On the back pane) which gives a natural atmosphere for you and the fish.

The stand and hood has been finished in Walnut Opera (Similar to a Dark Brown) and the tank has polished edges.

Their will be no livestock included in the sale but all equipment to get started and more is included!

The tank and stand is VERY heavy. You will need to pick this up in a van and you will need 3-4 men to help with removal. I will try my best but I also have a prosthetic leg which makes things difficult.

As you would expect with a second hand tank, this comes with some scratches from scraping algae. Other than that everything is in perfect working condition. The successful bidder will be very happy with this purchase, no doubt you will get this tank and equipment for a very good price.

A great Christmas present for someone who would like an aquarium, as everything (apart from fish is included).

Any questions please ask.
