    I am going to leave it for now. I got the full price yesterday and with all the extras i want it is over 100k i cant justify giving the Norwegian goverment that much bloody money extra on tax. Plus i just paid a 5k bill for the MRS car she reversed it into the flucking house. (pregnancy brain we will put it down to :whistling: )

    Am impressed with this low maintenance setup and the clean up crew.......in three weeks I've only had to clean the glass once :clap:Big Thumbs Up:clap:

    Also thanks to the filter sock on the sump return, I've not yet had to clean the external filter (it takes water and returns it to the same compartment as the sump return pipe). Will defo clean it this water change though (tomorrow).

    I paid £29.99 for 4 to 6 polyps (although this supplier has a history of giving more....you only need to look at my nuclear green paly to see that, which cost me £14.99! :w00t:). Everything else listed are good value...my entire order came to just over £150 and I'm fairly confident they will be good sizes.

    My green hystrix was colony sized and cost only £14.99 as well (sadly for you they only deliver to mainland UK).
