    Hi guys,

    Looks like I'll be living in Bangor from now on.

    Dream course awaits me in the Uni :D :D :D

    Anyone know any good places to buy near here? Marine/FW/Planted all in one ?

    Or how far TGM is ?

    Hey mate,

    TGM is about 1 hour 30 mins away.
    Maybe a bit far to travel if you haven't got a car?

    I'll have my car :)

    Still a bit far though, might have to save up for petrol!

    Ahh, Ideal. I think I'm 5 hours away from TGM, and that isn't 'too far to travel' :p

    60 miles too far ? Really ? I couldn't live only 90 minutes from TGM without at least giving them a visit. 120 mile round trip. Average car on a run 35mpg even if thats 4 gallons its what, £25 petrol ? Im assuming that even WALES has busses too ? Encourage some of your uni mates into the wonderful world of aquascaping and you can share the petrol :thumpup:

    yeah about 90 minutes from TGM. I work over that way now and again and unfortunately most of the LFS's over there have gone under. There are a few good fish shops around that have the odd bit of planted (Rhyl and kinmel bay) but nothing much really in west wales unless someone can enlighten me as Ill pop in!

    you wouldnt want to get a bus from bangor to wrexham, nightmare journey of probably 10 changes. Train is doable (Bangor to shotton then to wrexham) but will probably cost a fortune no doubt :( easier by car with a few mates to help with petrol.
