    No, the pipe came off the return pump and it chucked about 70 gallons over the new leather sofa, so tank went or divorce was going to arrive, plans are afoot for a 6x2x2 in a part of the house that has been flood proofed:thumbup:

    A hobby magnet, it has a blade built in, also a blade on a long handle for the back, but most of the pictures were tken when the tank was very new so this may not be a true reflection of how it looked all the time:whistling:

    Wee-Man: nice to show your tank's pics ;-)

    It was really looking good at the time! Sorry to hear that you too experienced another one of a reef-keepers 'hates' ;-) - flooding the living room floor!

    We will be watching out for the next version of "Wee-Man's Reef" ;-)

    So, any timeline yet? (how's the "wife looking for a new job" going? and the "leak-proofing an area for the tank to stand in"?)

    Cheers, mate!

    I was i a bit ckoked when it happened, at the moment no new job so time line tricky, she is well qualified in morgages/insurances so it's only a matter of time, but the water proof bit of house just needs a new roof which will cost around £200 so not too bad, will keep you all posted when it kicks off.
