    So I decided to get back into the saltwater hobby!

    Was searching for a All in One nano.And wanted to add some mods but try and do it on a Budget.

    Went for a new Aquaria AMW 102!

    Contacted the guys at Aquaria and they offered a replacement.

    They took a brand new tank and wet tested it for me before shipping.And I emptied my tank and it it going back to them.

    GREAT!!
    Decided to have a proper stand built.


    New tank arrived today.I went to the courier to check and pick up.
