    Ok guys. I have something in my possession a few pieces of glass. They are cut to size, the tank will be 450x450x400 and the sump is a bit smaller(the sump was given to me by a friend who moved into a new house and didn't know what this thing was lying underneath her braai area).

    I currently have no marine equipment for a marine setup and my parents will not allow me to set this tank up in the house, but the plans are up for a flat to be built for me on the side of the house :thumbup:

    Convince me with your wisdom and wealth of ideas for this, otherwise it's going into my classroom as a bathwater tank:p

    PS, if this is going marine, I will save up and buy equipment slowly and only set up when I'm in the flat.

    Oh, and compliments of the season to all;)

    Haha leslie, you're probably right. Been without a tank for more than a year now. Keen to have one again. I think Zoa's, Mushrooms, some two clowns, chromis and a cleaner shrimp or two

    Les - Sounds like a plan, but the flat hasn't even begun it's young life yet, still needs to be conceived, haha. I think in the meantime I must start looking at equipment.

    I'll come past when I get a chance, thanks Les, but it'll still be a long time before I even think of setting up
