    Hi all , its with great regreat we are closing ... for 4 days while we renovate and move our aquarium department. :m01:

    The floor we trade on has been badly damaged by the salt water , so we are taking over the other side of the warehouse.

    Before we move we are :
    1. grinding the floor
    2. putting down industrial epoxy coating with a sand embedded for grip in wet areas.
    3. We will have a dedicated qt room , closed off , that's also where we can drip our new fish under red lights ect for less stress.
    4. the R.O salt and municaple water will be re plumbed to be next to each other above new drainige troughs also apoxy coted .
    5. the r.o and salt water will be kept downstairs and pumps will push the water into the taps whenever the tap is opened.
    6. we will have ( Planed ) a coffee bar or lounge area for you lazy people in front of a show tank.
      the Marine tanks and fresh water systems will have dedicated plugs for uplift pumps and lights with a changeover switch for our gennie.
      and lastly a self hep water testing area - do the test and ask for help if necessary :m12:

    this is starting today , so have some patience and on Tuesday , we will start moving the marine tanks over 1 a day , and then the fresh water banks.

    i would say in about a month , we should be done , but trading again on Monday / Tuesday.

    Some pics of the process.

    Hey , thanks for asking , the marine tanks are done! new stock came in and all looking good.
    The QT room is up , not finished , but up.
    The salt water is all collected and filled through a valve on the wall ( 2500 liter drum downstairs )
    RO drum will be done by Tuesday afternoon.
    INVERT TANK WITH SEPARATE TRAYS FOR SPECIES IS RUNNING , LOOKS FANTASTIC !!
    still need about 5 ATI lights units to get marine light up properly...

    Now we are moving the Fresh water tanks , what a pain all electricles have to be redone and arduous...
    Waiting for some wood to be delivered and will still enclose the marine tanks with wood to give a neater finish to the metal stand/ sump and wiring.

    Got to get back to work ,
    chat soon

    P.S
    Perky is getting a loyalty system in place so , we shoyuld have news on that in about 2 months if all goes to plan.

    i was in there today and must say its looking good. Invert set up is very attractive and the RO station is quite smart. looking forward to the rest of the proposed changes and to see what will be going into those side tanks of the invert set up

    well done man
