    Thanks Guys, you're making me blush! LOL! It took over a year so far, to get to this point and gosh the materials which this monster consumed was baffling! It's finally done now; with a special thanks to @Dorry Pets Centurion for all their wonderful service and support! Thanks Dion, you're a Star!

    You have reason to be proud @TrevorR ..... And yes... these monsters consume an incredible amount of materials!!!

    Hehehe, we have been setting up 2 very big tanks ( 2500l and a 3500l excluding sump) for the last 6 months and we still need more materia and to build the cabinetsl! So I know how much goes into this..
