    Most of you know that I was planning an upgrade, well I have managed to buy a 4x2x2 Godiva.
    Now i know with rock displacement and thickness of glass this technically probably isnt 101 gallons but perhaps with the sump it just squeeks in.

    This could be quite a slow upgrade as i've still got to collect the tank from Wales and apparently decorate the living room. But with the decorating budget spent on the tank this could prove a sticky wicket.

    Theres no pics yet, but batteries for the camera have been bought in readyness

    PMSL cant believe its in the pico section :lol:

    I dont see the deal between large/medium, I think I'm meant to have mine in large but started mine in medium.

    Have you picked it up yet rob? Is it being set up in a different part of the room to your existing one or you having to mess about doing a one day transfer?
