    Thanks Martin. The distortion is not good, I agree. And I do need good lighting. Back one step in the planning stage I guess.................I'll try a bit of lateral thinking maybe.

    BTW you were right the prices on the link are good.........depends on delivery charge as to if it's a best buy.

    an egg".... :D Bill

    Omelets are a lot easier Bill. At least I got a smile out of the Mrs. when I was out with the tape measure trying to fit a 6 footer in a 4 foot gap. I may negotiate with my neigbour to see if they would like a fishtank wall feature.................Then I could knock through the dividing wall.

    BTW it's a semi-detached house, do they have them in the States? Or are all the houses like mini palaces like I see on the films (movies). :)

    Semi-detached? I think we would call those "condos" over here. No, not every
    one lives in a minipalace, silly :D Too much Hollywood! Sorry, I used that silly word again, so silly of me....

    I'm still doing the tank research thing. Think I've gone off the corner unit idea. There's a quality one that I have my eye on ebay, comes with 2 externals and a RO unit on a solid wood stand :) ..................A lot cheaper than the Juwel option. It's set up as a marine tank ATM but I could always throw the salty bits into the sea. ;)

    Well my planned ugrade has taken another U turn. I've got chance of a Juwel Tigon 350 for a bargain price with masses of extra equipment and 6 5" to 6" Discus for far less than I would pay for a new tank. All of the modifications that I would have done on a new tank are in place already. The bonus is that it's within 20 miles of my house. There's also a 24" and 18" tanks with equipment into the price. :D

    Ian,
    Don't let the former owner see you taking the Discus (Disci?) to sell to your
    LFS :D Unless of course, you want them. :D

    It wouldn't be honest of me to say it's not crossed my mind, however I've always liked discus but never been able to justify the cost so I may keep them.

    Here is the fish stock with the deal :-
    THE FISH

    6 Adult Discus - all bred in Far East

    1 Blue Diamond - 5"
    2 Blue Turqs - 5"
    2 Red Turqs - 5.5"
    1 Red Turq - 6"

    15 Cardinal tetras
    25 Rummynose tetras

    3 Apisto Borelli - Male

    10 bronze cories

    2 Scwartzi cories

    1 Peppered corie

    1 Marble Hatchetfish

    2 Whiptail catfish

    3 Bristlenose catfish

    All fish in excellent health.

    I will have to modify my plans a little but the 24" tank in the deal will be the cherry shrimp breeder.
