    julle n paar fotos belowe.
    Wel hier is my eerste probeerslag.
    So this was my house.
    I had the tank for 7 months and has broken it up a few days ago.
    Going to build a new tank at my new house.
    but this time I'm not going to do it all by myself.
    Will start a thread and keep you up to date with my progress.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    when do u plan to move and what sort of size tank are yiu planning to build? are you going to build it into the wall or have it on a stand like the old one was?

    what did you keep in the old tank?

    Welcome Schaun. Wishing you luck sounds a little lame; i suppose enjoy the ride and keep us posted sounds more appropriate:)

    WOW Schaun! I am really impressed. This tank "look" (the tank and stand) was a STUNNER! Something REALLY "nice" and out of the "ordinary". Looks more like a TV on a TV stand than a marine tank ;)

    Really neat.

    So - if this one was looking this way - I cannot wait to see what the new one is going to look like!

    Good luck with the new build Schaun. Please keep us all updated!

    BTW: just a quick question - what type of live rock was that?
    And also - who advised you on the egg-crate at the bottom of the tank?
    (if you don't mind answering)....
