    Hi

    Just joined and, hopefully, set up my UK APS signature.

    I am taking delivery of a 6' x 2' x 2' tomorrow when the fun will begin.

    Anyone here from Leicester?

    Regards

    Hi Keith,
    Very jealous of your tank - lucky you!

    I'm in Nottingham so not far and there's a few guys who I'm sure are from Leicester knocking around too.

    Howdy Keith,

    Hopefully you'll have a nice FW planted tank or decide to go a large marine planted system, maybe some purple seadragons to go with those seaweeds?

    I'm trying to get the Monterey Bay Aquarium to do a nice SeaDragon display with marine macros and seagrasses.

    I've pinpointed to them how to grow our local seagrasses well here.

    Reefs are also very nice, I am using some smaller seagrasses in an upcoming reef I have planned for the foreground and then a regular coral reef display, just with a nice seagrass front.

    Refuges are also an obvious aspect I'm good with.
    This is a namely FW plant group, but there are more and more Marine plant folks popping up and trying things.



    Regards,
    Tom Barr

    I am glad there are some Leicester people here. Apart from the net I have never seen a planted tank so maybe a get together some time?

    Tom I see from your reply that you must have had a peek at my reef web site but in spite of your comments my decision has been made and I am now going the freshwater planted tank route and have sold all my salt water gear.

    I wish you luck with Monterey Bay Aquarium - I didn't realise you were into salt water as well. The sea-grass project sounds good. I looked into this some years ago but we could not get it here in the UK and I was told that although some shops were looking into it there were great difficulties in transplanting it and getting it to grow.

    I have, hopefully, attached a picture of my new tank. The back and one side are painted black, there are 5 x 58 watt lights in a home made hood. The tank will be heavily planted and managed by the Barr modified Walstad approach. I have six bags of Flourite and 50 kilos of fine gravel waiting to go in but before I add it I would be grateful for any comments on the position of the driftwood please.
