    Good only thing that didn't like the move was my kenya tree but I can handle that it's £10 rather than my others which are £50 just trying to get my sump settled just waiting on some pipework as it's gurgling

    Swindon has some better corals! You should try there when you get a chance!
    My skimmer in a boyce ( If that's how you spell it ) does 1700 litres a hour so hopefully it will do the trick!?? ( not sure though ) and I'm using Red Sea coral pro salt... You...?
    That's how mines set up for the moment till I get that 25-50 litres of ro then il be flying!! Or swimming I should say.. Ha
    What's up with your plumbing..?

    What's that skimmer pumping out...?
    You've got that right!! Can't wait to flowing! Just need more coral and to sort my lights out need to drill some holes in my hood so it doesn't over heat!!

    Stick a durso on it mate. Plumbers merchants will have the bits you need as it's only a U bend or 2 90 degrees bends together with a blank at the top with a small hole in. £5 and your sorted.....quiet as a mouse lol
