    Having finally completed the onslouht of trainees at work (yes, that place which keeps me away from my tank) My esteemed employer has sent me on a well desderved break!
    Some of the islands I will be staying on.
    Will also be doing some coral farm potential prospecting. and no, I will not be bringing any frags back!

    Enjoy your trip Ivan - where exactly is this? One of the Seychelles Islands? Or Mauritius? And how long you going away for? Who's going to look after your tank at home?
