    The thing is................is that no one realised when I had one end of the tank through the door.............how close it was to slipping through my fingers.

    Wet tank bottom, no grip = BIG problem.

    :eek: :eek: :eek:

    Yep, that was me on the red crutches with Scott and gordie. Will be back to see you when I have permission to spend again, don't worry. :)))

    Whipitup, good job you did not say anything at the time, NM was bad enough after he thought he had cracked it, could you imagine his face if you had said that at the time. He would have had a coronary I think. :eek: Would probably have dropped it himself. :(

    Alls well that ends well,

    Just has to get ti all back again tomorrow, Good luck with that NM :--

    Well the tank is back in place as of about 11.30 PM There is still alot more bits need doing but here are a few shots of it on the way . Whilst the tank was out we managed to stain the stand (Kim has only been waiting a few months) . Big thanks to all that helped especially Gordie who has to be at work in a few hours and of course Poppy (one of my girls) She managed to get in the way all day in true female style :lol:

    Poppy looks so sweet there, repeating what Coral was doing the day before :lol:

    Tanks looking good, hope you nuked those aips, see you succumbed to cleaning the mirrors on the weir though.

    Like the rock shape too, lots of space to work with. :--

    Where are the nems though??

    Surely your coral is missing too, or is that my eyes??
