PostSubject: well it had to happen   Wed Sep 09, 2009 6:00 am

i was watching my poor little injured fish and then it hit me

why was i running 2 tanks and neither tank could this little fellow stay in due to aggression, so i got on my thinking cap and then it hit me (no not the fish)

i needed a different tank so i trolled through bay and my brother has been nagging me for one of the tanks so i called him up asking does he still want it.

well he came arround the next day and picked the tank and it's inhabitants up and away he went after agreeing with me and a deal was struck

now i have the 4ft tank left but how much longer will it be here ????

now you are all aking your self y is he getting shot of the tanks





now the reason for the departures are i am getting a new one this week and the way i looked at it was

if i have more space then i would be able to house the little fishes with their own territory so to speak so the new tank is

5ftx2.5ftx2.5ft so that will be 860 ltrs in the main display tank (twice the volume of the 4ft and then some) with a 4ftx18"x18" sump bringing the total water volume up to 1080 ltrs

so once i pick it up i will then add pic's and set it up ready to go

God, you wouldn't want to take a risk with a leak in a tank that size would you . Hope you manage to get it sorted ok.
