Description: Tank 6ft x 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 ft. Combination of LED & fluro T5HO full spectrum overhead lighting.Back of tank is lit by LED's via a enclosed void behind tank with rear glass tinted so it appears black when unlit & lights up as diffused Blue, giving an illusion of extra depth (width). Filtration provided by an Enhiem canister filter (1200LPH) via corner weir with a 1200LPH internal filter.Another 1200LPH pump sends flow to outlet at bottom of section of rock wall for water circulation. Rock walls hand built using all natural local river stone.To conceal filters, plumbing & provides caves, hiding/refuge etc. Substrate/Gravel also is sourced from our local 'major' river. Tank was set up as a Tropical Community but changed to African Cichlids after house move.Stocked with juveniles of various species. This tank was salvaged from disuse and was about to be scrapped. The stand was very bad and has been almost completely rebuilt. The tank itself was formerly a Marine tank that was emptied, dismantled badly and left. Although very dirty it was still structurally intact (apart from some scratches on front glass)
