    It wont be up and running for a while but will hopefully collect the tank this weekend.

    Collected the tank last night exciting stuff unfortunately I need to rethink the sump as I won't have the space for what I want. But I will make do
    Will get to ordering the last of the piping I need this week. Sum will be ordered also which will give me 3 weeks to plan all the piping and install. Also have some rock from my Fluval which I took down so I am going to try and make some columns out of these for my scape. Also need to make a few cutout for fitting the radion mount and get measured up for the top to order a cover.

    Very nice

    Plenty of room for some stunning rock work Des whilst plenty of room for fish to swim. Good to see you can use a lot of existing kit, keeps the cost down.

    Look forward to following progress

    So I have finally sorted my plumbing after talking with a good friend yesterday. Will see how it works. Plus side is it won't all need to be glued. Also have the sump sorted and ordered. Unfortunately don't have the space for a water change section. It will be on the list for the next. I will be making sure I have space then.
