Thanks for your help guys, ended up finding a young lad that lived about half an hour from me who had experience with marines, owned 2 or 3 tropical tanks and worked in a fish shop, he was quite happy to swap my marine tank for one of his tropical tanks (minus all the bits), so now I join the tropical forum and will leave you guys to it. The tropical tank looks fab! The wife calls it "tacky" I call it, "colourful!"
Re: BUYING AND SETTING UP A MARINE TANK - HELP?
You could always take the short trip down to Essex and buy my Orca setup off me, only want ?200 for the lot, comes with sand, water, 8kg's live rock, clown fish, turbos snail, numerous bits of very healthy mushroom coral, salt, test kit, treatments, nets, etc etc
Needs a little bit of TLC as I just haven't had the time to look after it properly since my son was born but no more than a quick scrub on the rocks and stocking with what you want.
Guys, I need some help with this one, I really have got to get shot of this Live Rock but I'm really struggling, I can't just dispose of it as it cost me an arm and a leg. Does anyone know someone looking for 8kg's of the stuff?
It's got some really nice mushroom coral attached and I'm only asking for ?60 for it.
Ebay didn't work, it's listed on Gumtree, but i'm seriously running out of ideas.
Cheers fella, I'm only messing with you, I knew you wouldn't take it, was just trying to keep the thread lively in case it sparked some interest. Got the rock on ebay so hopefully I'll get enough for it to fund the cleaning and restocking of the tank when I convert it to Trop.
