    I was thinking about that myself. Perhaps the best solution maybe if you guys keep custody and send me a certificate instead. After all it is a floating trophy, so I got to mail it back as well.
    Sounds like a bit of trouble caused by our crime statistics

    Yeah, a certificate for the mantle piece would be cool, with the gold embossed APSA logo of course :)

    Congratz Corr a well deserved accomplishment.


    I am curious though you being the master of DIY did you post a thread yet on the DIY LED lighting, pardon my ignorance but I am leaning towards LED's myself and who better to teach me the ways than the DIY master himself? :notworthy:

    Hi HC, thanks for the compliment.

    Don't know what I can tell you about the LEDs. Theoretically, I think I've got it all "waxed" so-to-speak, but putting the lot together is yet another matter. I'm trying to glue the LEDs to the heat sink with special heat transmitting epoxy glue. Unfortunately, it doesn't hold very well, while on the internet there are some serious recommendations to BOLT the LEDs to the heat sink.
    So that's what I'm doing now (very time consuming [​IMG]).

    PS: When I finally have those LEDs working, I will be ready to start this tank up properly, but - untill then - I'm still "sukkeling" around. :laugh:
