My family have bought me a tank for my birthday, and seffieuk (my sister) has put in a lot of blood, sweat and tears to get it for me, so without her this would still only be a dream.
The big day is tomorrow, boy am I excited I have had the tank sitting in my dining room, all covered in sheets and table clothes for the past 3 weeks, and no I haven't peeked
This is what it looks like
It will be unveiled tomorrow at 12.00 BST, pictures will follow shortly after
I also got my new RO unit this morning, eventually, after they delivered it to the wrong address yesterday
This will be set up next week, Mr Trod has week off
and sometime ago I bought a V2 1200 protein skimmer, bargain for £31
But I beginning to have doubts about this after recent discussions on here regarding skimmers, I feel I may have gone to big, but will sort that out at a later date.
So my plans are to GO SLOW I have done hours of research on lionfish and am pretty clued up on them now
My other tank is an orca TL550 which is a plug and play, so it came with everything included.
I am entering a whole new world starting this tank from scratch, I have great faith in all you guys and I know you will be there to help with everything, for which I am very gratefull indeed
I am hoping to aquascape using reef bones (thanks Ben, for idea) to create 2 caves, and also have LR.
I don't know whether to have a sump or refugium, this again will be decided later, after, I'm sure, much debate
So the waiting is almost over and the journey begins
