    The main reason for this forum entry is my existing tank's days are numbered.

    Upgrade Time

    I started my tank and this wicked hobby in Dec 2007. I purchased an existing tank with good plumbing, RO unit and a great skimmer (DNW200)

    The package deal gave me all the basic and essential equipment.

    First thing I learnt was transporting a 400L tank is not easy, especially when you taking all the water, corals, LR and other livestock for a 50km ride.

    After the insane job of assembling a tank and restocking water, LR and livestock in one night. I thought what the hell have I got myself into.:crying:

    Then out came my priced and most precious Midas Blenny. He danced for me in the now rising sunlight, and I was hooked.:)

    I have to mention an important ingredient to the whole hobby's recipe (for me) is MASA, which has given as much pleasure, humour and heartache as the actual tank, inmates and machina.

    Enough said, You want Specs and Pics

    Right ?

    I didn't mention it, because Matt got a bigger tank, and looks like the cardinal is going back home. :razz:
