    Hi all

    After a year and a half playing and learning with an old scratched (leaking) standard four footer I have decided to upgrade when friends donated a brand new tank that they assembled after hearing of my interest in this wonderful hobby!
    So out with the old and in with the new! Some pics of the old system.

    The new tank dimensions is 1160 x 700 x 620. I didn't like the clear silicone so Danny changed that to black and added a proper overflow and support glass. I also had to build a stand which weighed 60kgs after galvanising. Currently busy setting up plumbing and still deciding what to do with the sump.

    Nice upgrade, the black silicone definitely looks better. :)
