    So i have recently had to move and it meant major trauma in my life !
    How do I move the monstrosity of a 2m tank with all my livestock?

    [​IMG]

    My wife being the pragmatist she is said "Get yourself another tank!"

    Went shopping frantically and this is what i found

    [​IMG]

    1.8m but heck it looked good!

    i then decided to out with the black aragonite and in with white also i painted my background black.

    [​IMG]

    I also had to build a sump as no one could build me one quick enough. (This all happened in 10 days)
    So the first one the glasswork was shoddy and i crack my tank on the leak test!

    I was running out of time and decided to build my sump in the cabinet as I had to start filling with ro and that takes soooooo long !

    [​IMG]

    Had to take a Pic of my new bar !

    [​IMG]


    And voila ! First time no leaks no problemo ! Cleaned all my kit

    Boy did i let my equipment go!

    [​IMG]

    All nice and clean afterwards ready to kick ass !

    After that i put in a bucket of the best
