    Hi guys,

    I'm going to try a reef in my room at Uni this year.

    Just wondering if there's any good marine shops close by ?

    Cheers!

    Hahahaha :lol: Kris you crack me up. You say you can't afford the petrol to visit TGM but are thinking about a reef tank. Any idea how much they can cost ? You are as bad as me ;)

    Hi Kris,
    Wait until you get to Bangor, and then ask in the Marine Biology department (down in Menai Bridge, or at least it was 30 years ago), there should be plenty of people who know the answer, and can give you practical advice.

    cheers Darrel

    That's what I'll do then Darrel, if I don't take Iains lovely tank :D

    I'll be doing Marine Bio so I'll imagine that I'd have plenty of access to resources!
    (By the way its still down that way )

    Do you know anyone in the Uni, or have you studied there?

    Hi all,
    I don't know any-one know, but I did my under-graduate degree (Botany) there a long time ago, and I used to share a house with a couple of Marine Biologists.

    Bangor isn't to every-ones taste, but I really enjoyed my time there. I was a "country boy", so even Bangor was the "bright lights of the big city" for me.

    cheers Darrel
