    Hi all,

    Well I collected my new tank from East London over the weekend. What a drive!

    Now I am just waiting for the new stand to be completed. Holding thumbs for Friday.

    In the meantime I have to keep the LR going...

    Also testing my new DNW250

    As soon as the stand arrives the tank will be carried inside and then the fun starts. The tank is 2080(l) x 700(w) x 700(h).

    Very understanding spouse!!! Luckily we have 2 bathrooms.

    I'll have to have a beer and boerewors roll day this weekend to gather some folk to help carry the tank inside. Haha

    I bought the tank from Leslie. He was selling it for his brother-in-law. So I left Jozi for EL on Friday and came back on Sunday.

    Hi Crispin,

    Oh, you mean the 1.5m. That is under the carport and I need to get rid of it. The bottom needs to be replaced.

    That must be the lowest nutrient nano in the history of reefkeeping

    I think the Admin should make a sticky somewhere with most extreme/craziest things reefers do pics.The bath tub & LR and the nano with the DWN will be strong competitors if there was ever a comp.

    That is only half the story... I took the dining room apart to store all the equipment until the tank is in place. The house looks like Baghdad at the moment.

    I am now ready to spit spiders!!!!

    My steel delivery has now been stuffed up 3 times and the stand cannot be completed without the steel.

    I have never dealt with such a useless lot in my life. Keep on making promises they don't keep.

    Hoping all will still be on track for the tank move on Saturday.
