    Am so excited have just bought a RSM 250l which will give my few fish and soft corals their new home. Am a little sad as my old tank has much frustrated history and enormous sentimental value as my hubby worked like slave to firstly fix a leak that sprang when the tank turned 4 yrs old then to convert it so it had a small sump type filtration as It's a fresh water Jebo corner unit. It has really served it's purpose now for my new beauty...................am collecting tomorrow yay :biggrin:

    Congrats on your upgrade. :thumbup: Keep your old tank for a frag tank, still use it or hospital tank for sick fish. . .
