    Hey Guys,
    Been 2 weeks in Blouberg, surfed a few times already, but going nuts without a tank:w00t:
    ... So started fiddling this evening with a nano, ripped the lid off, the filter lid, cut some sections for some LED fixtures, and took out all the filter compartments.

    So back filter compartments will go like the following:
    overflow into Nitragaurd cubes, then into skimmer, followed by filter sponge then return.
    Lighting is made up of 12W led's (Little something I brought back from China:biggrin:)

    ... But most importantly my stand...
    Full of Good red wine:1:
    I'm definately catching onto the Capetonian style hey;)

    Nope, most of the boxes are stacked in the garage, clothes out, surfboard out and now the nano... and wine fridge stand:biggrin:
    We only staying here for 4-5 months, so this tank will have to mature overnight:eek:
    Thinking half Saltwater and half Special blend:whistling:
    Definately keen for a catch up, keen for a beer at Doodles anytime soon, it's a stone throw

    How about you run some piping and a pump through the wine fridge and make it a local tank?
    Then we can end a collecting trip with pizza at blue Peter?
