We are only 2 hours ahead of you in our summer (once you switch over to daylight saving time). It is now 10h32 here so we just have 30 odd minutes to go now.

Oops, well according to the time in chat box it is now 12:53 so you can see why i'm a little ahead:blushing:

Dimensions are 800 x 400 x 600, not as big as I originally thought but still a good buy. Will post more pics later of the sump, skimmer, hood etc.

Just wondered but, the bottom of the stairs, is that a good idea? every time you carry anything upstairs you are in danger of knocking it, if the missus wants a new bed or bedside cabinet etc, you might have to move the tank.

Don't want to put a downer on your day, but it's worth thinking about now rather than later

Its a second hand tank with everything needed to start: sump, plumbing, skimmer (not the best), 2 pumps, T5's in hood. He also gave me 2 bags of sand for the substrate and a big bag of salt. Will post pics of everything tonight!
