    Going to Dubai in +-2 weeks for 10 days work and 3 days sightseeing. Anyone know if fishy related stuff is worthwhile?

    Get some sand... I believe it's finer than pool filter sand... :p

    Just kidding... But if you do come across some CO2 splitters, would you mind picking up 1 for me? A 2 way would be ideal.

    Did some quick browsing last night, i'll be visiting Dubai Mall. Massive aquarium with the worlds largest single piece of acrylic. Wonder if its thicker than the ~33cm thick acrylic used in the Melbourne Aquarium :eek:

    Thanks for the link WBS. It's pretty close to the one I've been eying for a while now. Then I also found a reg, with solenoid with a 6 way splitter. It would be ideal for the fish room. Just need to actually place the order.
