    7.37am - just need to move the old empty tank and furniture.
    The new tank will be here in less than 3 hours.
    I had less than 6 hours sleep.
    Look after your fish and the water, do regular water changes & maintenance, do your research and the hobby will be rewarding.
    All the best

    8.35am
    The space is vacant and ready.
    I decided that I won't be starting my set up today, just the preparation and checking everything.
    I'll start first thing tomorrow, after a good nights sleep.
    I may post some photos though  *grin*
    I need more tea.

    Sounds like you need something other than tea to me ;)
    Hope it goes smoother now. :)

      *good_luck*
    Any tips on how to convince the OH. I still don't have permission to use my old tank for another setup.

    Easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.  *grin*

    11.56am Tank is now in  *grin*

    I'm going to take it easy today.
    Take Gill out for lunch as she has been superb, I could not of done any of this without her.
    (Where's the nearest burger van?)

    Just 2 photos to start.




    You can see a glimpse of the Roma 240.
    As you will see I had a great deal (better than Seapets) on this 6x2x2 Aqua One Aquience 1800R.
    2 x filters
    4 x T5 24W + 4 x T5 39W tubes.

    More to come ... ;)
