  Fish House close down various tanks , fish and equipment

Description: I have decided to close down my fish house and have slowly over the last year moved on my Racks ect and am now left with my larger tanks and fish. The equipment listed below is ideally suited for a fish house and has served me very well for a number of years.

Tank 1 - 4ft long x 2ft high x 1ft wide
1200mm x 600mm x 300mm

Bow fronted pine effect Amazon manufactured tank and stand with out lid/hood. no leaks good condition complete with fine sand substrate and a fluval 407 canister filter with media and sponges.
needs a clean and is not running tank is empty.


Tank 2 5ft long x 2ft high x 1.5ft wide
1500mm x 600mm x 450mm

Tank comes with two heaters , Ehiem wet and dry canister filter 2227 I believe Fluval U4 internal filter. tank is made up of slate and coral rock on a fine sand substrate. tank is bare of wood and any lid but is sat on a purpose built mahogany stand with storage. With in the tank there are 10 tropheus fire crackers tank bread but a breeding group of adults and juveniles ratio unknown. 2 tank bred frontosa from my large group that i have left over, again these are juveniles. Tank is running and leak free.


Tank 3 8ft long x 2.5ft high x 2ft wide
2400mm x 750mm x 600mm

Tank comes with 2 FX6 Filters complete with media, sponges and extra long hoses. 3 300 watt heaters , 2 fluval U4 internal filters, 1 off wave making machine for surface water movement. with in the tank there is 2 large Aqua Décor rocks from my show tank and around 30-40KG of Coral rock on a fine layer of black sand but only a light dusting. With in the tank there are the following fish 16 Frontosa of which 5 are Frontosa Zambian and are WF of which i imported from the lake when i had my fish import business. others are made up of F1-F2 Burundi and Congo variants. The wild males are stunning fish with a very fine distinctive white crest on the dorsal fin and are around 230mm - 250mm in length.
other sizes range from 150mm - 200mm+. this group or thou mixed have breed on several occasions although I don't know the full ratio with out venting.
other fish in the tank is a 150mm Synodontis Granulus. Sex Unknown.
The tank is plain with no lid on a stand i built from 50mm steel box section painted black and finished in thick marine ply. Structurally you could either put a sump on the bottom of the frame or another large tank saving space in any fish house.
You would need a big vehicle to collect and at least 4 people to move it once emptied. i can supply some buckets for the fish but bags would also be a good idea as these fish are big.


will sale the fish separately from this tank as a group only for £595.00

If anyone would like all the above then i am open to offers that are reasonable and reflect what is being sold.
