    So Roger has a two foot cube and 51 radions, you have a four foot tank and you bought how many? 2? Are the other 100 on back order just in case?

    Great progress so far Ben. At the pace your going by the next time I check your tank will be wet (nothing wrong with wishful thinking).

    Cheers Si

    Had to grind the mantle piece by 1/2" to fit the tank back in. Good job the wife was out and she has not noticed. Managed to get vacc'd and dusted just in time!

    Looks really good ben! What dimensions the tank ?
    Your rock work looked huge on your kitchen side and small in that beast of a tank.

    I would maybe have the rock a little closer to the back glass and have a few more islands on the sandbed at the front. Just a thought
