    Good Day All,

    I decided to post my tank, from the start where it all begins. I want to thank CW, Goby, Manic, RiaanP and Tobes for all the assistance up to date and all that I did not mentioned.... And Ernst for "Die Visdam" :thumbup:

    Eish!

    Always fun to start up a new tank, the anticipation of it all! Just have a look at the plugs, they are begging to be leaked on

    Nice setup, love the trimming around the edges. Damn GHA, heard its a bitch to get rid of.
    Whats the dimensions? Looks like a nice size.

    Its nice and clean now.:thumbup:

    Nice, wish my tank was 600 high. 700 high is a pain to work in.
