righteo.... as i am sponsoring some of the prizes i cant win.... :whistling: but lets setup a nano in anycase :blushing:

So i am taking break from dismantling the freshwater tank and i decided to start my own thread :slayer:

almost all of the equipment on this tank will come out of storage. the only thing i will buy new is the BH-100 skimmer that i ordered today. The lighting will be from 2X Hopar 3X39watt T5 units. I will also be running an old eheim to polish the water... photos to come soon!

Too big I'm afraid, has to be under 130 litres to qualify for the comp.
