Yes, a big thank you to Mark for organizing the get together, pity the others couldn't make it.

I got home on the last train for the night from Charing Cross and ended up spending a fortune on taxis, first time in many years. :lol:

MA was definitely very impressive, very nicely laid out and presented shop. Mark's local also had a lovely Mbuna tank at 12' long!! Should of bought my digital SLR. Hope we can do this again sometime.

very sorry to hear that, was this unfortunate incident related to your new boiler being fitted?

That's crap, not what you need on a Sunday. Hope its relatively trouble free getting it sorted, although unfortunately these things tend not to be.

PS - have just spent 5 hours redoing the tank, will get some pics up in the journal once the water has settled tomorrow. The wood looks chuffing lovely, soooo glad i decided to get it ;)

Sorry to hear about the water burst that's absolutely awful!
I'll post up a picture of my new wood scape as soon as I get chance.
Thanks again for the hospitality and ensuring everything was as good as possible.
all the very best.

Here's another, the so called "The Ultimate Plant Tank" At Wildwoods :wideyed:



I'm feeling really cynical, Mark: What is on my mind is if Wildwoods would take this video in good jest or ask you to take it down due to libel? :wideyed:

Wildwoods was a great place though.

haha, why don't you offer to do a rescape for them? :p

Sam, hows the tank? did you get yourself those poker chips?
I've got my wood in use, I wish I had a light for the 11, I'd have it filled and running now this minute if I had.

Mark you need to stick up your tank in journals or aquascapes, its beautiful.
