Hi,
I bought one in the UK but the guy is no longer trading . The others were ordered from Orphek as there was no other UK seller at that time ( I have not looked for anybody else in the UK so best to check )

Hi
I have just got some brown frags which suffered in shipping to be placed on a rack under the back V4 ( mine has v3 spectrum leds to match the front units) to see if they colour up big test for the lighting. Might take a few months.

Very nice tank. Would you mind sharing what your procedure for introducing new fish to your tank is? do you quarantine, treat the fish before introducing to your tank etc? I just went thru a wipe-out on my tank from parasites on a fish I bought from a LFS.

Thanks,

Im lucky in that respect as I only buy fish from one store that's 20 mins away and they will only let you have fish that's been in store a while and they are sure that the fish are feeding and are well . I have been many times trying to buy fish and told they will not release them so you have to purchase them and they hold them until they are happy as its the store policy and you get a guarantee with the fish if for any reason they die you need a photo of the fish and water sample before they replace or credit. Customers are happy and often buy over the phone and collect when ready.
