    I used to be active here as fibreoptic but no longer have that email address so started fresh. Looking to start cycling my tank over December and then plant in January and hopefully introduce fish at more or less the same time. Starting with same tank and sump previously used. Just have to take everything out of mothballs and check whether still in working condition. Definitely need new lights.
