  Fluval Profile 850, TMC Grobeam LED lights, complete set-up

Description: FOR SALE:
Complete aquarium set up including:
•Fluval Profile 850 Aquarium in silver
•4 TMC GroBeam 500 LED Natural Daylight lights (2x twin sets) with metal hanging rails
•JBL CristalProfi e1501 filter,
•Hydor ETH 200W External heater,
•A host of extra bits including as pipework, filter media, nets, water container – basically most things a fishkeeper would need.

This is a 4 year old aquarium. It is around 230litres in capacity, 85cm long but tall at 65cm, making it ideal for a smaller community, small marine reef or the taller fish such as freshwater Angelfish, Festivum Cichlid etc.

I have enjoyed keeping my fish, but unfortunately now have to put my hobby on hold - due to a new house and a new baby, I need to get rid of the aquarium because I simply do not have the space or time to dedicate to it. My fish have already been rehomed and I now need to shift the tank itself.

The original aquarium lights (tubes) have been removed, and the lid slightly modified to allow the use of metal rails, upon which hang the GroBeam LED lights (which themselves cost £300). I did this due to the LED lights being more efficient/cheaper to run and needing no maintenance – I have found these to be sufficient to grow basic plants, even though the tank is quite deep. The lights sit above some sliding acrylic condensation covers which I made myself but can be left off if required.

This tank is plumbed through the base, and the Hydor ETH heater sits externally in-line in the cabinet below, meaning no heater or other apparatus in the tank itself. I have added some sound-proofing foam to the interior of one half of the cupboard underneath, as originally I have a different (and very noisy) external filter – although the e1501 filter I have now is very quiet and efficient.

Some people use this aquarium to fit a sump underneath and set up a small marine aquarium. I have a variety of additional pipework and fittings that I have used with this tank to redirect the output flow from the filter.

One thing to note is that this aquarium cabinet has the doors on the ends, meaning it cannot really be put into an alcove without blocking access to the cabinet and equipment underneath.
The tank itself is in good condition – it is a used tank and I have just recently drained it down and cleaned it up. No major scratches on the glass (a couple of minor ones, not really visible apart from very close inspection). The cabinet is also in good condition with no scratches or dents.

The sale includes everything listed here, plus whatever the buyer wants from my boxes of spares and accessories – various pipework, fittings, heaters, some filter media and other bits. Basically all my fish stuff needs to go, and whatever isn’t taken will probably end up at the local waste recycling site!

Please see the images for more details on dimensions. The photos obviously show the tank in use before it was emptied.


Buyer to collect from near Sheffield (right by junction 31 of the M1)
Cash on collection – you will need a van or estate car to move this aquarium as it is quite heavy (a two man job to lift it). Obviously I can assist with loading at my end.
Please ask if any questions.
