    Hi guys, at weekend i drove over and met [MENTION=22632]Phil077[/MENTION]
    to drop some zoas off for him

    When i got there i was met by a massive tank and a happy fella who explained his fish tank is his absolute passion as he is retired but he has big trouble getting around not only does he not drive but has a walking stick

    He has family scattered around but feels like he is putting them out of their way and as we all know we could hardly drag a family member who knows nothing of our hobby around an aquarium for an hour while we indulge as they would be bored to tears waiting

    As such has never been to @BurscoughAq and would really like to go but is simply too proud to ask.... SO..... as im not shy of opening my mouth..... would any of you guys over liverpool way kindly accept a reefer buddy for a trip over to burscough one weekend..... im sure if phil was in manchester id be the first to be picking him up and taking him round but L5 is just a bit too far for me..... doesnt mean however one day in the near future i wont be having a drive over to show him the LFS In manchester.... but in the near future.... im sure one of the liverpool reefers would happily give a top bloke a ride out

    [MENTION=18058]Moneydownthecouch[/MENTION] can i leave this request in your hands pal as im sure you know who the reefers are over your way. Scott

    I've tried 2 private messages to Phil077. Neither have flagged up an error, but my sent messages is empty?? Could this just be because I'm using my windows phone
