    Hi All, eventually got around to giving an update. Have been running rabbid for a few months. This is good though as there are a lot of people looking for work etc. So be happy with being busy, I suppose.

    Tank is doing great, eventually got Profilux totally under control. This is not an easy thing to learn on your own.

    Found a great supplier near my house, Robin from Aquafin. Has been very helpful and comes highly recommended. Prices are fair and he can get things organised.

    Anyway you guys only like photo's so please see below.

    Some of my favorite guys - Nassau Tang, Maxima Clam, Wrasse.

    Hi Guys!.....
    So long not on the website!!!....

    Mark, wonderful to see my "baby" is in such good hands. Not a day goes by that I dont miss my tank and its inhabitance. But it helps to know I could never have asked for better owners of the Tank and the livestock!!

    Miss my friends terribly!!
