Very nice part of the country, we go there a couple of times year. And not too far from the epicentre of UK aquascaping, Aquarium GardensSuffolk (already found a house) and be mortgage free and quids in. Near RAF Mildenhall,
I think your idea of downsizing to a 120 is a good one. It's amazing how costs (and maintenance) can spiral out of control with a much larger tank.have already decided to switch from a 6ft tank down to a 4ft x 2ft.
It's not just the initial outlay on hardware, it's also the cost of hardscape, CO2, plants, water and electric bills etc. EA Aquascaper 120 is probably one of the best out there atm.
