    Here is my Idea for the new place Ill be moving into.
    We move in at the end of August Lost of work to be done.
    There will be a tank room and this is where my clown breeding tanks will be going and all filtration.
    Main display tank will be 1700Lx1000Wx700H
    kitchen divider tank will be 2000Lx450W450H
    It will be a long time as the down stairs well still have to be renovated.
    The best part of this whole moving thing is Ill have a tank room all to me :yeahdude::yeahdude::yeahdude::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:[​IMG]

    Sorry to hear that Kalkwasser.
    It would have been great. Where about on the Bluff are you situated as I also stay on the Bluff.
    Cheers

    Hi Kalkwasser - perhaps you can build a "Raised pond" - meaning that you can add a piece of glass on the side, allowing you to view from BOTH from the top, as well as from the side :)

    Hope you understand my idea....
