    Linksfield? next to Rightveld?

    Just kidding

    Anyway, please read up, and be sure you know the basic concept of tank cycle BEFORE you add any fish. Anyway, posting pictures of your setup as it is now without anything in it is a good option. Then other members can help you out with possible flaws or maybe an idea or 2 that would make your life so much easier later on. Remember, the better you set up the system in the beginning, before adding any live stock, the more rewarding your system will be. Short cuts tends to bite you.
