    I just placed the tank to see what it would look like there. Tiling is eventually complete so should move in, in the next couple of days:)

    Dont even think about it. Do you know how long it took me to clean it:razz:

    I'll start with the woodwork during the week. I still need to finish the edging on some of the pieces but most of them have been covered.

    I am planning on sticking the Seios brackets onto the perspex because I dont want to spend so much money on magnets. Will super glue work on perspex?I saw a special glue when I bought the ABS sheeting
