  1. If you're looking at LED then Radions are amazing. But I sold my radions and got a hybrid and it was immense. It was a pacific sun hyperion S2 and when I get a new tank in future it will be hybrid again. Get the colour, pop and shimmer from the LEDS along with the coverage of T5 so you get the best of both worlds. Sent from my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge using Tapatalk
  2. What Salts The Best These Days.

    I used Seachem Aquavitro Salinity. Really good salt. There's no such thing as a "best salt" though IMO. Think of what parameters you want your tank to be at and then choose the salt that is the closest match for them. Sent from my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge using Tapatalk
  3. Never Saw This Coming

    Haha. You know me well lol. Cheers mate. Setting up again will be next year at a guess as need to move house soon so will wait until we move and then get a big one. Quite fancy the new big red sea peninsula tank depending on the layout of the new place. Cheers guys. See you there sometime soon Sent from my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge using Tapatalk

    Well certainly a blessing in disguise. I will be starting my new job in the next couple of weeks down at Abyss! Sent from my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge using Tapatalk
  5. Never Saw This Coming

    Unless you're into brown frags full of bryopsis and bubble algae, I really wouldn't bother. You'd be lucky to find a decent coral in the display tanks that doesn't have some form of recession, stripping or algae. Been on a downward spiral for a long time and only so much I could do with the 2 days I was in. I asked for more days to get things sorted but they weren't interested. They wanted to run it into the ground to justify closing it. Even only last week I messaged him to ask what the hell was going on and asked him outright if we were closing down. I'm not stupid, I had a feeling it was going this way but just clung on to the hope he would pull his finger outta his ar$e and sort it out or let me do it. Only last week he denied it, saying we had coral shipments on the way and it would be sorted in the new year. So late on Xmas eve I get a message from a customer saying "sorry to hear the aquarium is shutting down". I didn't have a clue what he was talking about so went on the cockfields facebook page and saw it for myself. Nice of him to let the world know before letting his staff know. I messaged him to find out what was going on and he said "I thought I text you an hour ago but it didn't go through, sorry". As if that makes it ok! Even if the text had gone through its not something that should be done by text, an hour before announcing it to the world, late on Xmas eve. He's now playing the "nobody has lost their jobs" card by saying I have opportunities to help entertain kids and maintain the farm. Neither of which I have any interest in nor was anything to do with the job I accepted when I commenced working there. The job was a sales assistant in the marine section of the business. Rather than having the decency to offer redundancy he's forcing people out by making them do jobs they have no interest in so they will leave on their own accord. Sadly, the place shutting down won't be a loss to the hobby as it's been poor for a while now which is a shame as it used to be one of the best before their attention turned to cuddly toys and bouncy castles. Anyway, hope you all had a better Christmas than I've had lol. Sent from my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge using Tapatalk
  6. Leaving The Hobby For A While

  9. Leaving The Hobby For A While

    Well I'm now reef-less for the first time in about 6 years. Tank was picked up tonight. Sent from my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge using Tapatalk
  10. Leaving The Hobby For A While

    Thank you guys. I will still be around on here having a nosey at all your tanks lol. My tank has been well and truly raided this week lol. Only things left now are blastos, pagoda coral, zoas, clowns and marine betta. Then equipment wise it's just the vectra return pump, Kore 5th doser and the apex. Although I'm waiting for @@w3bbo to call back for this marine betta lol Sent from my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge using Tapatalk

    Hi mate. The MP40QD will be £220 and hybrid £400 Would take £600 for both. Although this will have to be after livestock has gone lol. Sent from my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge using Tapatalk
  13. Just a quick heads up. My entire tank will be being listed for sale later on today. Corals and rock will be going first, then fish, then the tank and equipment. Pics and prices will be going up later. I need to get into full time work so will have less time for the tank, got a new car on order and need to pay off a few debts. The funds from this will more than cover the debts and more, plus the savings from not spending on the tank will help out with everything else. I need to prioritise things for now and the tank is near the bottom of those priorities unfortunately. I may set up again in future but it won't be for 2-3 years I think. I will enjoy the break from it as tbh I've not really been fully enjoying it for about 12 months now. There's a few stunning euphyllias including an amazing toxic green frogspawn, 3 trachys, a stunning blue squamosa clam, about 20 acan frags including rainbows, rainbow acan Echinata, blastos, a few lobos, chalice frags, SPS frags and a VERY nice turbinaria. Collection will be from Oldham OL2 8ED Sent from my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge using Tapatalk
  14. Ecotech Radion Generation 4 Launch‏

    We got some in today but didn't get chance to have a proper look at them. £699 for the pro and £569 for standard version. Apparently the fans are quieter on these, if true then good because the fans were the loudest thing on my tank when I had the radions. Surprised they haven't gone for fans on the top and built in WiFi though. Definitely missed a trick there. Sent from my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge using Tapatalk
  15. Crab I.d

    Looks like it's got red eyes to me. I'd be taking it out. Emerald crabs don't have red eyes. Unless it's just the pic that makes it look red? Sent from my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge using Tapatalk
