Hello UKAPS, :wave:

One of the things i really enjoy on here is all the pictures of peoples setups. Although we all tend to focus on the tank itself and not its location. I have seen several pictures showing where it is possible to have your tank, and as an inspiration to new/old members i thought it may be cool to start a topic which is purely photos and descriptions of your tanks insitu in your homes. This then could be enough to inspire to think of somewhere new to put their tank ;)

So come on get some pics of your complete setups in location, I know many of the members on here already have these pics but lets put them all in once place to show its possible to have your tank in your bedroom, lounge, kitchen, shed, dinning room etc. :thumbup:

Always had them in my room, weather in the loft, a caravan or a dorm, always managed to find room for one of them to tick away.

How many tanks do I have? Currently 3, one on order. At the peak I had a 45x30x30 a 60x30x30 a 30x20x20 the cube and a 20cm cube and a 75x30x30 all running at the same time all planted. Didn't last long though, was giving away tanks and equipment left right and centre to family and friends when I downsized for uni.

All of them where in the loft with the exception of the 75cm. Water changes meant carrying two buckets of water down then two up at a time till the job was done. It kept me fit.

They do looks really nice steve although i do pander for a nice rectangular nano sometimes. The metal stand and light are quality although you do need to upgrade the 10w bulb to a 20w reflector to get the most out of it. Would be nice if an LED equivalent bulb was available
