ps will muller your storage..........elements is not so bad.
in my humble opinion i really wouldnt worry about filter pipes and all that malarky.
although very very relevent if you were entering a competition i would just say keep clicking until the memory card is...
if you want to pop in and see me john you are welcome to bring your camera and have a "play" with my lenses.
not that they are pro equipment but it may help....................would be good to see you :D
you could critic my emmersed set up too :evil: :D
JM Livefish do an excellent service and everything is delivered with "fishkeeper care" unlike other delivery companies.
however timeframes and costs may have to be a little more flexible but they may be worth considering :)
long time no speak :)
i have a 350D with a canon 100mm macro lens which provides nice fish shots.
i also have a 55-200mm sigma lens with macro facility which also seems to do a nice job, especially when i want to fire off some basic shots without setting up the tripod and remote...
could you not get some mature filter media from your LFS?
i try and give anyone who comes in with a new tank some media if i can.
ok so it might not cheat the system but it will certainly shorten the looooong process of it. :)
Re: Marks Crypt Tank - Osaka 260L
this i really really like....................im not sure about the "tree" sticking up but please please do not take this as a critisim ( i couldnt do better myself)
i think this will look very nice once filled out..........but then i am a crypt fan :oops: :D
amen to that.
i sometimes dont understand the thinking behind this nation of ours.........we kind of "put up the blikers" to problems until they get out of control...........then have to enforce massive measures to irradicate said problems at GREAT expense to us...the tax payer.....instead of a...
as an ex JBL emploee i saw these filters in pre and obviously post production. their predecessors were quite honestly pants but these ones (i have one running on a tank at present) seem to be very good value.
i have and always will be an eheim man but i do think these are a good...
i have a shop and sometimes find it difficult to meet minimum order some weeks.
to be honest i thought about doing this years ago. i spoke in depth to a friend who has his own specialist reef shop, and the conclusion we came to is a fish house is a must. a large amount of stock will need to be...
be aware that customers will not have the same appreciation of tanks that you will.
if a fish gets ill it will have to be removed IMMEDIATLY...........they will not want to hear "the tank will be a funny colour while treating"
they will want a "perfect" looking tank at ALL times with no effort...
i know what plants i could/want to put in there..........its just the layout i am pondering. i do have a picture in my head now and im starting to drool :lol:

we have met before at hayling island (i am a former JBL rep) nice to talk to you again.

its like a painter having a blank canvas and not a scooby what to paint lol :lol:
i currently have a 72 x 30(h) x 24 inch marine fish only tank with sump.
running my own business and energy costs and time restrictions mean the tank is not what it should be and i am thinking of a planted set up.
i am struggling for inspiration...........
i am thinking of a dutch...
I think Claudia from JBL replied to your e mail mentioning me.
Are you the same chap I dropped an item to when I was working for them?
Either way there is a possibility I could help you with your quest :lol:
