    Hi all

    I can say that the building work starts next week, So I doubt i will have time until that is finish to set up the biggish tank :(
    But my good friend Matt who owns SouthWest Marines here in the UK has a little fish for me.
    Im spoilt with a great bunch of people in my life as another good friend Jason Ling of Ocean Displays has made me a pico tank to keep the FPG in.
    Simon has given me a Maxpect 60W 16k nano light to,, I asked for nothing either its just genuinely nice people in my life being nice lol
    Anyways I shall keep you all updated and share a few images once its up and running....
