    Ok this one isn't a monster tank, but if there is one tank in the UK that i base all my future knowledge on, it's this, the water quality is always spot on, the corals look fantastic. Not only that but, Tony is one of the kindest, friendliest blokes i know, basically, i'm a thicky, but he actually explains reef chemistry in ways i can understand (well almost):thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:
    I could ramble on about this for ages, bit hit the linky and have a look for yourselves.

    OK - ok - ok.... I will comment.... The tank is really a stunner! Anyone of us would LOVE to have one like that - (except for Alan and Glynn Forman - both already have tanks looking like that ;-)

    Cheers mate, feeling a bit lonely there, seen the tank in person, the amount of work he puts in is a real lesson on how to run a successful reef tank, that or how to worry yourself to death over a few fish:lol:

    Every time i drop by his house i think that, the Acros have grown out over the central weir now - the tank is just stunning.

    Very easy to mock, now that the corals have grown out it is difficult to spot the overflow box, not only that, it is still considered one of the finest tanks in the country.
