    I was at the New Malden store today and was speaking to one of the people that work there and they are going to be using the big show marine tank that have there, and changing it to freshwater planted for this project and all the marine fish are going to places like London Zoo, also he said they have changed the date, he was saying its now going to be sometime in September as the store would be too busy over the Bank Holiday weekend, now not sure if all the above is true but thats what this employee was telling me. Anyone got an update if these dates are correct for the New Malden store or is the above correct and they have in fact moved the date?

    I will confirm in the next few days.

    I've not received any correspondence stating other wise, so take it that the original dates are set. I'll still post with confirmation though.

    I've seen the outline of these tanks on the floor, Mark! Seems like you'll be putting on your bathing suit!

    I hope the employee I spoke to is wrong and it is still going ahead on the bank holiday weekend, as I got nothing to do that weekend, so would be good for me.

    Mark, would you be willing to start a list in the OP of who is looking to come and from where? We could try and group ourselves up transport wise then :). Especially relevant if there are some Essex guys talking earlier in the thread!

    Thanks Mark, dont know why that employee told me that, if he did not know. Why give the wrong info to people that are interested in attending, if he was unsure. gggrrrr. again thanks for confirming the original dates are correct, glad its the bank holiday weekend as will be able to pop by that weekend. I am popping in to p@h this week for dog food so will see if they are still telling people the wrong dates and put them straight. ;)

    If you would like to start a 'list' of names, by all means do so. It could benafit a few of you with regards to transportation.

    If you put your name down and dont attend, dont worry. This is not set in stone, but the more help the better.

    I've done both arrangments here at Tropica, with wood which has arrived from Malayasia. To say they're big, is an understatment!!!!! Proper Amano style wood on a grand style.

    We marked out the dimensions of the tanks on the floor, and i did the arrangments. They now have to be individually marked up and numbered, so i can replicate them identically.

    Plant list an placement has also been sorted. be prepared for some major plant splitting!

    They're to be pr-soaked, and this will make them heavy...they're heavy anyway, so we need some hands on!!!!!

    Ok, here goes with a list then. If you want adding to it, please just post with your approximate location, which date/location you are supporting, and how many seats you have if you're driving (or equally, if you're just looking to grab a lift). I'll have 4 seats free since oddly enough the other half doesn't want to come with me for this one :p.

    New Malden - 24th August



    New Malden - 25th August



    Stockport - 7th September
    LancsRick - West Lancashire, 4 seats


    Stockport - 8th September
    LancsRick - West Lancashire, 4 seats
