    Not sure if anyone remembers me here but used to have a tank a while ago, in fact it was even tank of the month. It's probably still on here somewhere.
    Anyway now the kids are a bit older I started missing not having a tank so had a trip over to Burscough Aquatics and the always pleasant Steve helped me part with some money. I now have a 4x2x2 with radion LEDs. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Hi Rob, you stranger, really pleased to see you back in the hobby as your last tank I remember you certainly know how to keep your sps.
    I've closed my marine tanks down a while ago and have now setup a planted tropical tank and went on a learning curve from keeping corals to now keeping plants and going down the peat balls, fertilizers and CO2.
    Anyhow, a very nice tank you've got yourself, Steve's gaffe is so easy to part your cash in as he has so many great things in.
    Look forward to its progress.
    Are u still living in the same house in Breightmet?
