    Well after giving up the hobby and selling my old tank (before it even got really going) after selling or giving away just about all my equipment, test kits and salt etc etc all gone. within 10 days i had bought another tank, :biggrin:. JamesFirths Red sea 130d.

    after everything had gone i realised i wasnt ready to give up at all, kinevil kept mentioning a nano to keep me going etc etc, initially i wasnt interested.....until i saw the effect James had managed to develop in his red sea, it was stunning and as it happened he was upgrading so the tank was up fo grabs . After viewing his tank thread and then going to see the tank it sold itself.

    so im back and this is how its looking, any advise hints or tips greatfully received.

    Looking great, like the scape, better than I had it. Clowns are looking well, I'd look the black ones, but its a no go with children wanting Nemo!

    Was a big shame about the 5x2x2 i was as gutted as you were.
    A red sea well planned and paticurlarly stocked can look very special

    I was gutted mate, I'd thrown the Towel in.
    But I've learnt a lot and think the red sea can be very very nice,If I get it half as good as James had it il be very happy.

    I've even got ideas in mind for next upgrade lol

    Well been busy this week. Bought a vortech mp10 from Jamesfirth. Great addition. Very impressed cheers James. Been nagging you for weeks about it.
    Finally picked up my tunze skimmer I bought from Racea. And in the process bought some corals from warren at Cheshire reef. A nice bubble and a hammer. Some blastos and Zoa frags. Well worth a visit has some nice corals in. Pics to follow

    I'm hoping to get a flame angel in soon. And some frags from screwloose.

    Not sure what fish will follow that, but I'm really happy with the way it is going.
