    Aquariums Limited

    I had heard about poor service from them, and wasn't going to spend my money there. Just waiting 2 weeks now for delivery from ND aquatics, who have been first class throughout. Personally i would get your money back, via polite email and then charge back due to unreasonable production lead time.

    Hi Paulo, hope your well. New project is quite a bit smaller, than the last one, will be 3' x 2' x 2', instead of 7' x 2' x 2', so just under 300 litres, instead of 720 litres. But will be in the living room, so i can see it all the time. Will also be my first Opt-white, so not sure what to...

    Substrate Choice?

    I've used NS and personally would not use sand to cap it, after a while the sand will fall through the soil and mix together, and as said before replanting will mix the too, unless that's the look your after of course. :)
