    Finally made a decision! Our friends that will be 2mins round the road from where we are moving to are happy to look after stuff for 6-8weeks while we move/settle in

    So today I got a new bucket of salt - spoke to Mark at cockfields and will order my mp10/teszla controller in time for Christmas

    Well the pink tipped torch is still "sulking" or more to the point just wont come out - I am starting to feel its a lost cause for it.. however the remaining 3 heads dont seem to show any damage so..

    My Duncans seem to have bounced back okish and the GSP has really sprung up!

    I am hopefully picking up my Zoa frags this weekend so will see how they get on!

    Well as abit of a bonus I believe I am now pretty much ready for the house move :lol: well tank wise anyway

    My lfs is willing to lend me the containers so I can purchase the 300litres of water from them (using the same salt now so no issues there) which means all I have to worry about is getting the tank moved and in place in an afternoon! And then the water picked up! I can only assume it won't take long to get upto temp thus I don't even think I'll wash stuff down during the moving process (at best a wipe over / rinse with RO before it goes back in)
    [MENTION=18127]StarfishEnterprise[/MENTION] I should be over Cockfields this weekend but I can only assume you are tied up so!

    Hmm balls, I could check my work diary. Are you thinking morning or afternoon mate? I could see about getting the afternoon off maybe?

    Not sure if that'll suit [MENTION=20031]nemo85[/MENTION] ?
