First, these are NOT the same units as described and pictured in a recent listing on this forum from another member. Also, these are NOT Marineland but in fact, Casco, considered to be more reliable.
Tank units has been removed from the base for moving and storage. I can move it all on my own with difficulty but help will most certainly be required for loading, assembly.
Tank section is approx. 49 3/4x63x21 3/4 inches and sits on a base approx. 49 3/4x31 1/2x24 inches high. The two top rows are separated into six compartments by a slotted separator,each compartment measuring approx. 8 x 8 x 10 inches high and for every two is an outlet and an adjustable inlet. The bottom row is separated into three, each one roughly 16"long x 10"x14 1/2" high. Each row is lighted and balast sits on top of the tank section.

On the back of each tank section is a heavy gauge polyurethane (I think) reservoir with plastic bio balls. The bio balls are in a unit approx 12" high by 5" by 10" wide. The reservoir measures 12"wide by 6" by 60" high and is top vented. The large vertical pipe on the right in the pic is the intake and goes down into the base. The smaller one on the left is a return and goes into the base. There is a check valve on the return. I'll add a close up of that.

The base. Roughly half the area is sump with filter and a separate area that has more filter. That filter at this time has charcoal and floss. It measures about 12" by 10" by 8". The rest of the base houses the electrical, pump and plumbing.
Holding capacity is somewhere between 100-125 gallons.

Price reduced:
Asking $600 per unit.

Thank you IPZ, muchly appreciated.
Still got 4 of these left!! Imagine how they'd look in your livingroom :) ...no...wait...:eek:
Okay, checked out the link and I'd say without a doubt they are Casco, same as the aviary and rodent racks I have. Sent them an email, again, thank you.
