    Hi Everyone

    Initially my wife and I thought, 'Hey! Let's get Nathan (2.5 year old) a small fish tank to double as a night light'. 40l Hailea Tank, goodies, and some gold fish later, up and running, and doing well.

    Then discover this thing, 'Aquascaping'. Now I NEED to have it.

    So, now ever so slowly, I am busy getting everything I would like to start off with, which is no small feat... Also, I severely underestimated the cost of things, but then, why would a set off glass Lily Pipes go for R1800. It baffles the mind.

    Then, in all it's glory, Junkmail is the prime evil. Just browsing through it, you see a Lido120 with Dophin C500 canister filter for R1500... Somehow, it made it to my house! :scratch:

    So now I have 2 tanks to populate, but to keep me sane and in the hobby/sport, I will do the Hailea first.

    Ok, that's me.:wave:
