OFL created the topic: 300 gallon aquarium + sump filter for sale

April 2nd 2013 - This complete setup is still available


I have for sale a large aquarium measuring 8' x 2.5' x 2.5'.

The aquarium holds approximately 300 gallons of water.

There are two overflow boxes fitted in each back corner

The tank has been adapted to take an external sump filter

The tank comes with a cabinet which includes all the piping needed for the sump filter

The tank comes with T5 lighting, although it is rather subdued so you may want to increase lighting for your own preferences

The tank comes with a large external sump filter which has been manufactured from a water tank. The sump used to be located in the aquarium where the original sump is still in situ but not in use. However I designed a new and much more efficient sump filter which is now located within a cabinet next to the aquarium, where it's a lot easier to get to. Because of the size of the sump, you don't have to carry out maintenance for quite a few months. There are several heaters also available, including two Aqua Medic 500 W titanium heaters, including controller, this heating system alone is worth over £150. One of the titanium 500 W heaters is completely unused.

There is a large amount of media available with the sump, including over 2000 bio balls, approximately 10 kg of Alphagrog, plus a large amount of mechanical media, including sponges and brushes. There are two Eheim 1262 universal pumps available, each pump is rated at 3400 L/hr. Only one pump is required to run the whole system, I have the second plumbed in as a spare in case of emergency.

The filter has its own lid and partial cabinet so that it looks tidy when located in the corner of a room.

The tank comes complete with approximately 120lb of black volcanic sand.

Also included are two huge pieces of wood which alone would cost you over £100 to buy.

This large aquarium can be used for both marine or freshwater. It is absolutely perfect for either lots of fish, or very large fish. The sump filter provides an enormous amount of filtration that will deal with just about any type of fish you put in this tank.

I'm looking for around £600 for the complete set up. I will accept sensible offers.

I'm looking to sell everything together, so please don't ask me to sell individual items

have you sold your oscars than?

Good luck with sale; it took 4 big guys to shift my 150 so they will need a few hands :)

I'm living my life, but not necessarily in the right order :)

Agreed that is an awesome set-up and a super deal. I would pay you cash on the spot for that. Free shipping to Canada?? Hope you are not getting out of the hobby, you're the Head Honcho!


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

Don't worry, this website is going absolutely nowhere. Yes, I am getting out of Oscars after a decade or so. However, I am by no means packing in fish keeping, I'm entering into completely new venture. I don't want the hassle of a big tank and lots of water changes, done that for years so it's time for a change. So I really fancy keeping shell dwelling cichlids. What I like about them is you can keep two or three in a 10 gallon tank, or maybe six or seven in a 30 gallon tank. So that's what I've decided to do.

Sigh... I'm in the wrong country to buy it, lol. I can't even find 6 foot tanks for that price here in my area, lol. Still on the prowl though for my huge fish tank.

What??!! That is such a great deal. Too bad you’re on the other side of the swimming pool. You would save Jason or myself a lot of money. That would be the perfect umbee or dovii tank. Good luck with your future endeavors by the way.
