    Hey guys, got the tank finally yesterday. Thanks to Tobes, Thalion and viper for helping me with this, lighty you are a wimp, but thanks to Hailey though:thumbup:. Anyway, been tinkering and getting all the stuff into place,except my DIY skimmer which has decided not to fit so will now wait for an external to knock on my door..

    here she be looking all lovely in pink. just managed to get the tank on after barking orders:) you can also see the stand being cleaned(not by me:thumbup:-score!!)

    so in other words you did a half job both ways. Half cleaned the stand and uncle did a propper job, then u cleaned half the glass and left the rest with algae?

    why not just go half tank...1m??

    the tank will only be visible on two sides, partly due to where it was able to go, and partly to tryin to get the best out of the scapin, so the coralline on the one side on the back is desired;)
