    @mariusmeyer... U see, my old thread is still viewable, but I don't have control over it as my old user name is non-operational... So by starting new thread, I did kwik shot, no long stories, straight to point intro,as many don't know my tank... As for user name,I couldn be more happier to have changed,coz intially this is the name I wanted.....

    With that's, here are some more pics...
