    Thanks, my first tank with black silicone, looks very nice :slayer:

    The nano is still around, nice to sort of experiment with it and see how these nano guys do things without sumps etc.:p

    Ok, 5 minutes, I'll be back;)

    Bought it when I was in SA and packed it in the container with all my other stuff. I think there was more fish stuff than furniture in the container.:p

    Thanks, paid the equivalent of R1100.00
