    hey guys,

    in the last 2 years i've bought many tanks and for various reasons unfortunately haven't seen them through to completion. i can definitely say that i've learned a lot and paid lots of school fees

    after seeing robin's, submariner's, jaydun's and gaboon's tank etc. i decided it's time to ask adriaan de beer from idol marine to build me another of he's masterpieces

    it should hopefully be finished within the next 2-3 weeks

    i wanted a rimless (braceless) starfire tank and adriaan suggested we build this beauty:
    [​IMG]


    tank volume will be about 1400l

    AND adriaan will also be building me the most awesome engine room that only he can

    thank you adriaan for giving me such professional service and advice, so far it's been an absolute pleasure doing business with you!

    watch this space :)

    :lol: yeah i know it's real sad man, i'm just never satisfied with the result then i start from scratch again (or something new grabs my fancy while i'm busy with something :arghh:)

    now i'm sitting with 2 x 500l tanks, 1 awesome nano (at least hotdog bought it from me now), a 800x800x800 cube and many bathwater tanks, not to mention all the skimmers, pumps etc. etc.

    after this setup i'll have to do some serious spring-cleaning, lots of "bargains" will be available :)
