    HI all,



    I was lucky enough to be part of an awesome tank tour on Thursday night, It was organised by my local LFS in Hillcrest (Nigel and Ralph, it was :thumbup:).

    The tour started off at the LFS and took us to 5 tanks in the area. I must say, the tanks were AWESOME!!! Good going guys ;)

    So I thought I should share some of the pics....


    PS: Some of these tanks are MASA members, but don't think they want to be named, if you would like to come forward, its their choice.

    Decision made, I'm gona be setting up my second tank, and the wall cladding around this tank has clinched the deal for me.

    I'm gonna be copying this idea, I hope the real owner doesnt mind :p no patent I assume;).

    Simply stunning, and yes I concur, there should be SW in there, lets see if I can oblidge.

    AFAIK it was normal slate that he chucked sand with white cemrnt on it to give it a textured look, It's really nice!
