    At least there's someone kind of local. Well about 15 miles from me. I'm only 3 months into my second tank. The first one I shut down after 6 months due to moving houses

    Lot of hard work for 6 months. Moving sucks. I've made my own tank and sump to fit my room. It's more expensive than I realised.

    The first tank went a bit wrong and I didn't really look after it like I should of. This one I currently have is a custom built Cube and I have a lot more time on my hands with work to be able to do things properly this way around. I haven't got a sump but I may look into getting one further down the line. It definitely is expensive but so worth it, in the end :)

    Well I hope this one does work out for you. Yeah I'm looking forward to seeing some beautiful fish/coral. Helps the missus is into it!! I was advised by local fish shop to do sump. Makes water changes easier. Main tank looks tidier hiding equipment.

    I've just bought and reserved a pair of black clowns, picking them up next weekend so they can have an extra week in quarantine. Luckily I have a wier in my tank so can't see any equipment. Pretty much the same as a sump really. But wouldn't mind increasing the tank total volume and getting more kit further down the line so a sump maybe on the cards in 12 months or so

    Nice little Christmas present!! We have ordered a black ice clown. The clowns are pretty cool. Great character. Oh one of them. I looked at them but they all made the tank depth to deep for the room.
