    FYI, the picture does not do any justice to this tank. In my opinion, this is the best looking tank I've seen face-to-face. Light & plant distribution is just perfect. Well done eskimo! :)

    Wait for the rebuild and then physically go through to Eskimo and check it out

    Cheers

    Ye! your tank looks a-ma-ZING! holy moly! think i'll make it my background! :)
    Seriously... almost can't believe it! love the octopus-like-looking-plant-thingy in the middle. how long have you had that tank and how do you remember all 40 different names of your plants, one is hard enough! haha!

    solex69 tells me u live in Stellenbosch? i'm studying there atm! would be great if i could come see that tank for real, lemme know if it's possible? :D

    Oh ye Solex69, plz lemme know if you need anything - dad owns a carpentry factory in Paarl so if you have some woods that need some cuttings i'll be glad to help you out? Can make u all cupboards/tables and stuff? hehe :)

    cheers ;D

    hey man thanks for the compliment, that "octopus-like-plant-thingy" is crinum calamistratum, I make a list of the names as I go.. the tank was about 9 months so now its about a year old.

    Ok you can come over 2day I'll be at Bohemia for the next few hours if you keen come have a drink with us and then we can go check out the tank.. if you cant make it send me a pm anytime..

    I just hope that when mine grows bigger it gives me the viewing pleasure your s is. Stunning photo! Bit far all the way in JHB, but I will look you up when this year’s IMACSA takes place in Cape Town if you don’t mind.

    Sorry not Hijacking thread just replying on Henk. As far as I’m aware there are some reefers in CT that is in the process of organizing this great event the best person to speak to will most probably be Regal or Muz. But if by any chance it’s not happening I will still try and make a trip to Cape Town as there is many people I would love to meet and having a opportunity to see Eskimos tank I would love.:wink:
