    Good Morning All !

    I thought I would briefly introduce myself... I have only recently started in the hobby ( Less than a year now ) and am looking to actually get some plants growing decently ! :tongue3:

    I currently have one 3ft tank and one 2ft tank... For the moment I am just reading up and getting ideas on what would be best to re-do my 3ft tropical tank sometime in the next few months ( Hopefully ! )... so I anticipate asking lots of questions !! :)

    Ciao For now ! :JumpfJ:

    Hi Guys,

    Well I recently managed to aquire a 6ft tank... needs lots of work but I hope to really get stuck in sanding and repainting the stand / patching up the cabinet etc during next week.. ;D

    Will start a thread in the new year... just a teaser for now ! ::)

    Weeeeeeeell....

    I paid R3500 a few months ago... :p Perhaps a bit pricey for a second hand tank, but I think its got PLENTY of potential...

    It has a SMALL sump and a few other bits and pieces of value, but needs ALOT of work in my opinion... which will begin next week while im on leave... :-[

    Im still collecting / buying things for it, so it will still be some time until its filled - for now I will be focusing on ensuring that its in good order / structurally sound...

    You'll have your work cut-out. Bought a new tank myself, and although I can't wait to start stocking-up, the mere anticipation is worth all the effort.
    So, enjoy it

    Regards
