    Hi Tony/joecoral,

    the opti-white is 60 x 40 x 45 cm i am still not 100% sure what to do yet but i may come up with something to use the height of the tank :idea:
    the dennerle is 30 x 30 x 35 cm i am planning on taking this to dan crawfords barby for the planting contest,

    regards john.

    looks like it'll be a cube off then John I'll be having my cube there too.
    Looks brilliant though, I'm jealous of all your equipment, but especially that optiwhite.

    Love the look of the tanks and cabinets. Particurley interested in what you do with the Dennerle tank.

    Does the Dennerle come as a complete kit? Filter, lights, heater? What sort of price do these run at?

    Cheers Gordon.

    John, I'm sure you'll do both so they turn out right crackers.
    Enjoy the holiday.

    Looking good brother! It looks like Warf did a great Job on your cabinet and the AquaJardin Dennerle stand matches well too.
    If you read this on your iPhone, turn it off, NOW! I had a £157 phone bill when surfing out in France, i swear it was less than 10mins all together, turn it off John, TURN IT OFF :lol:

    Yup, I made sure all the data roaming was switched off when I've been abroad!
    One of my friends got a bill over £1,000 (!) for using it in Thailand or somewhere.

    Hi all,obviously i am back,had a cracking holiday and the turkish people are lovely,really friendly they even bought me a couple of pints,did the turkish bath and massage,had the mud bath,really funny all in all had a good time,one thing i have started to notice now i am getting on in years :lol:,i seem to get quite nervous when the flight is approaching,i used to love flying but i am not so keen these days,i have told the wife i would rather have our holls over here and she just says i am being silly but seriously i am getting quite scared of flying these days,
    anyway as usual i got back to work today to find i am booked solid for ages so i dont know when i am going to start these new setups,but it gives me a liitle more time to think about what i am going to do,
    regards john.
