    Just wanted to say hi to all,been hanging out in the forums for a little while now and i thought i better stop being rude and say ello.
    I dont have a tank at the mo but am planning a 1.8 x 500 x 600 in my office here at jhb and about the same size built in at my folks in laws place at kaysers beach - east london.
    I have had tanks in the past but never a live reef system before,will be leaning on ya all heavilly.;)

    I don't think that could be Leslie's daughter but he is on the forum so he can tell you himself if he knows or is related to a Lucille.

    Nope leslie does not have a daughter yet? Well none that he knows about yet. :lol:

    As far as work goes I do not recall him ever working for the aquarium, but he has done work for the aquarium.

    The guys whose tank is built into the wall may have been Andrew Hoare. Awesome tank as well.

    Leslie's tank was on a stand. It was what inspired me to go reef.
