  Complete 300L Malawi Cichlid Aquarium with extras, smart lighting etc

Complete 300L Malawi Cichlid Aquarium with extras, smart lighting etc

Description: Full Aquatic Setup, all under a year old, some much newer: The price is a bargain without even factor the actual fish. £850

Please note the following Not splitting items/stock…to go as one, If you don't require everything, you can always sell on what you don't need.

Collection is from Goring-By-Sea near Worthing.
Responsibility of buyer to organise transport, draining, every part of the process of getting everything from A to B. Empty Tank without stand is extremely heavy, a struggle with two people lifting onto Cabinet! Fish can survive a considerable time, as you may know, you can order livestock by mail!

Reason for selling: Not well enough to maintain/monitor etc, it's is with a heavy heart I am parting with this. Lovely set-up, real talking point and stress reliever.

• Efficient air pump (Replaced) See Electrics!
