    Hey guys, look at my brand new toy!!

    UK Aquatic Plant Society generously offered me a new tank as a thank you for all the assistance I have provided over the years which I kindly offered out of my own spare time :) (I thinkDan just got fed up with me saying I am going to get a new tank and never did).

    I personally chose the 90x50x45cm aquascaping tank from the new The Aquascaper range, stunning cabinet and glass work, very impressed with the quality, now looking for lighting options and just need to get all the other bits and pieces ready to start scaping :) can't wait :)

    When I have everything ready I will start a journal, last one lasted for 4-5 years! lol :)

    Very nice looking tank LD and couldn't be given to a more deserved person. I know how hard it is just finding time to update my journal so I couldn't begin to imagine keeping the board running sweet. Loving the cabinet, just bought a TMC in glacier white which are just OK. If I'd knew these cabinets were about I'd have got one to go with my ADA 600H

    I hope whoever gave it to him made him sign a contract which requires a daily update with a minimum of 3 pictures and the tank must not be empty. Or something. What a nice gift!
