Thanks :thumbup: yes it is the Beamswork light, i just thought i'd have a play ;)

Lovely looking tank, very inspirational :)

Thank you :)

Garry. This looks great especially as you have not touched it! Very good work!

How have you gone about engineering the auto top up without pulling plumbing out of the walls?

Thanks the auto top up is the TMC kit, a really easy thing to set-up and works great.

Any chance of a closer shot of any in tank parts? It seems like its pretty small?

Yes its worth it - I was putting about half a litre a day in mine. I just use a 5L container for the water feed... seems to work OK.

Lovely Gary, that light unit is a work of art ;) nice to see a tidy cabinet ;)
Cheers Paulo - for the price of the light its fairly good, but I am missing being able to dim it down a bit. :facepalm:

Looking very nice Gary.

Thanks mate... the Pencilfish are great - I just have the 4 but seeing as they have settled really well I am tempted to get some more.... the colours are stunning :snaphappy:

Thank you Antoni :thumbup:

Cheers Dean - you know me a neat freak :lol: Since moving over from T5 lighting to LED things are great... mind you still have to watch LED's as most are very powerful.

Gary is the container a Tupperware cereal container with a hole drilled in the top?


Yes it is, its a 5 litre one (asda is your friend). I just put a hole in the top (slightly larger than the pipe) I thought 5 litres was enough and also I thought if this thing ever failed at worst it would only brim my tank and not overfill it.

That is a shame mate, it would of been good to see you again and you buy me a beer ;) I'm sure there will be other events coming up through the year, so hopefully you can make it and buy me that beer then :)
