Cheers Folks, there's some great shots there, mine are all blurred as usual I really must learn to use a camera.
I have this shot of 6 of us which my girlfriend Jenny kindly blurred in my stead.

I'm the chap who was on the Reef Aquatics stall next to you guys. Really loved your tanks. Over the last few years I've only ever kept marines, was never interested in setting up a planted aquarium until I saw your tanks! Very inspirational. Have been discussing with the boss about setting up a nano in the shop so I can generate some interest and get some experience before shelling out on my own setup! Anyone able to recommend a good wholesaler that deals with the equipment that you use so we can start ordering stuff in?

Once again, many thanks. I'll be picking your brains heavily over the next few months!

Hi Guys,

Managed to make it down on the Sunday and met you all at the best stand at the show by miles. As I promised George, have become a new member of the forum, and already got lots of hints and tips from the site. The scapes on the stand have already inspired me to order some plants from The Green Machine and re-do my tank from the Jungle mess (see photo) it is now to something really minimalist/iwagumi. Have to curb my desire to keeping buying lots of different plant species though!

I had crypt melt for the first time ever, due to a prob with my CO2 while I went away for a few days, so think it is a good time to make a change anyway.

cheers,

Elliot

Welcome along, Elliot! It was great to meet you.

Good luck with the new layout and be sure to keep us updates in the Journal section!

Neither James or Matt were able to make it. Here is Matt in 2007 and since then he's been very busy with other commitments.

Wow, dont we all look serwish.

I apologise - I have plenty of pictures my self, but my Mac is no longer alive, so I have no way of getting them up for you all to see.

It was a busy and hard working weekend. Its all about the logistics. :thumbup:

Its a shame the turn out at the FOF was not as high as last year. I hope we still continued to inspire those that did. That is what we are all about.
I also want to high light the fact that we are a national group and we do like to meet people and make new friends. We are not just a forum. The only real thing we wish we had more of was time and the money to meet more people and hold more events.
Ive made some true freinds from the humble start of UKaps and hope to make many more.

Thanks for being part of UKaps every one.

Cheers,
Graeme.

What manufacturer made this CO2 product?
Outstanding work fellas. Someday I'll attend/participate in one.
It's brand spanking new mate "FIRST IN THE WORLD" to be shown off to the public. It's really good.

It's made by Aquadistri under the Columbo brand. It'll be available to Maidenheads around now and costs £80 for the whole lot. Refills are £12.
Check out PFK soon for a full review....
