CO2 reactor too-LEGEND.
I know what you mean about the bad roads thing. About a month ago I bought an Iwagumi style tank with shrimps(50cm) form Chadstone area and drove it back to Knox with 10cms of water in it VERY carefully. Every splish and splash I heard was giving me mini heart attacks.

Not sure if any one is reading but here are a few more pics. Far from the greatest, I couldn't get the colours right!! The LED's are just to damn bright even at 70%!





My co2 reg also turned up today :cheer::cheer:

Dad said the clear acrylic for the DIY reactor also turned up today, so I will have that built soon... I want it going now of course, impatient little me!! I am waiting on the tubing and a few other bit's and pieces from HK so I will have to wait just a little bit longer
I will also be getting some rummy nose and lemon tetra's this week, if the lfs calls me before she makes her order.

I have just spoken to the LFS I am getting 15 lemon tetra's delivered tomorrow for a pretty good price too so I am very very happy.

The boss at work is also putting an AU plug on the reg for me tomorrow

Jealousy is an awful, awful thing... but I am experiencing it in waves. Your set up is sick and everything looks good.

I used to keep an open mind but my brains kept falling out.
