    Hi, hope you don't mind a foreigner popping in, but on the forum i use here in England i saw a link to Glynn Forman's tank so i thought i would do the decent thing and say WOW what a tank:dft010:
    The forum i use is Ultimate Reef, good fun, very informal and also very helpful, this site appears to be the same, so :wave2: i will be posting a few pics of my set up if anybody is interested, it would be good to share some different veiws on what is accepted methods in different countrys.
    Anyway enough of me waffling on.

    thanks for the kind welcome, it would appear that MASA people are just as hungry for pics as the Brits:dft010: will post pics from work as i can't down load them on the home pc.
    As a teaser though, my new tank (running since Feb) is 5ft x 3ft x 2.5ft with a twin 250w arcadia series 3 pendant with actinics, 5 foot sump with an AP850 skimmer.
    I have 1 regal tang, 1 yellow tang, 1 sailfin tang, 2 clarkii clowns, 1 flame angel, 1 manderin,1 bluecheek gobie, 1 yellow fox face and 1 leopard rabbitfish, lots of lps, mushrooms, 2 cleaner shrimps and 2 peppermint shrimps which appear to be doing nothing for my aptaisia population:031:
    looking forward to seeing moreo f your set ups in due course:)
    Mike.

    Yes, i love rugby, played all my life, cant get enough:dft010: but it does depend on where the games are played, they can be quite early in the morning or late at night but i try to catch as many as i can, do any of you follow the English rugby union league or the Heiniken cup matches?

    Wellcome wee-man - I am also active on UR so nice to see you here. It would be nice to get some of the other british reefers on here also.:whistling::wave2:

    I enjoy the Heineken cup and try to watch as many matches as possible.

    Pictures are an absolute neccesity.

    ok, very sorry for not posting piccies as i did promise, but, ! i can't work out how, and 2 my tank flooded the lounge resulting in 70 galls of salty stuff hitting the leather sofas and the missus hitting me:( soooooo, i will get some pics of the tank as was when i can work it out and i'm breaking down this tank and setting up in another part of the house where i can get away with dumping lots of water everywhere:)


    again apologies for taking so bloody long to get back:oops:
