    I reckon you need to raise the sides of the billabong and build in some viewing Windows! 
    That way you don't have to move to a place with a bigger pool annnnd you might get to see the gpg's more often!

    Now for "Frenchy"...
    Some of you will remember the "daughter-tax" initiated by Daughter No.1 to curb my GPG purchasing habit.
    I've now worked out a LOOPHOLE !  (Alright, to be honest - she came up with the new legal interpretation  )
    By getting her involved in the actual delivery, launching , and naming of new GPG she waives the tax... Yippee !!
    The arrival of "Frenchy" - thanks to @HaydnRex and Greg from GumTree  (as transported in the 150 litre Esky) - 

     
    Then we have the careful acclimatisation to Billabong waters (it's at this point Daughter indicates that the Esky is floating and can't be made to go any lower into the water, and can I help please by stopping taking photos on my phone ????) -

     
    Finally, the launch into the still green (but a LOT less green than it used to be) Billabong - 

     
    Cheers,
    Grover
    PS:   (I checked, and the last GPG I acquired was "Gordon" back in October 2015, which is pretty much a 2 year gap )
    PPS: (Not quite sure I should admit this - but the count of GPGs is waaaayyy over 20+.  Obviously the green water hides a lot. )

    Yes!
    It's a sign I'm losing it big time!
    Update tomorrow as it's past my bedtime - but we'd like to welcome the addition of "Frenchy" to the Billabong.
    Don't ask me what it means - Daughter No.1 choose the name (and I saved myself from paying the $50 'daughter-tax-on-new-GPGs' I usually have to give her when I buy a new GPG ha ha).
    Cheers,
    Grover

    HaydnRex got a reaction from 5h4d0w in Reef tank upgrade   
    So over the last few weeks I have been setting up the new tank and today is the day, transferring all the live stock and the last of the hardware from the 120 into the 400.
    Question, should I transfer the fish or coral first?

    Take 2 on Goldfish Catching...
    If you grew up with Road Runner cartoons, then you'll know that Wile E. Coyote had a great supplier - ACME Corporation!
    I too, have a great supplier - eBay !
     
    After the slightly abject failure with the  Protable Folded Fishing Net Small Fish Shrimp Minnow Crab Baits Cast Mesh Net
    My next Wile E. Coyote purchase is...  12 Holes Square Foldable Fisho larger with...ing Trap Cast Net Nylon Stainless Closed Shrimp Net
    Wonder Net

     
    I read the blurb, and how could I not be swayed by such magnificent persuasive literacy and features ??
    Features:
    Square design with twelve enters. With six solid steel bars, make the net stay strong. Zipper design makes it be more easier to take out what you caught. Can be folded,convenient to carry and easy to use.  Wow! 12 "enters", oh - the net "stay strong", and a zipper !
     
    And wait, there's more... !

    For a simple person like me, yes! yes! I need release from complex installation problems, please.

    Thanks for the suggestion on the peninsula tank. Had a look at the red sea peninsula tank, stunning, but a bit above my price range.....But, searching for peninsula tank instead of room divider tank diy gives much more results. Very confident I will now find enough info to plan and build this tank. Thank you
  24. Thanks

    You might have more luck searching "peninsula tank" I know red sea has brought out a peninsula tank range.
    It's really not that different from a regular tank except the plumbing is on the end instead of the back.

    Certainly is possible, if you use established media it's not uncommon to have a very short cycle or no cycle at all.
