  1. Hi everyone

    My name is Lockie aka Jimbozed
    3 years ago roughly, i lost all my fishroom stock to an unfortunate mishap.
    I was Gutted. The room has been running since with only a couple of tenants, a giant gourami and a turtle

    Today i picked up a couple of steatocranus casuarius and started again.
    by weeks end i will have some A.Calvus , Multies and L397 plecs.

    Im up and away again.

    Hi to all my old friends and to everyone else.

  2. Hi Everyone,

    Its been a long time since i was active here, but ive still continued in the hobby.

    Although other interests and life happens.

    My fishroom is still operating, Although an accident relating to human error means i lost all my fish including my Burundi colony and wild caught moba

    about 12 months ago.

    I still have a couple of fish but the tank system still chugs on.

    My room.

    I was doing a cleanup a few months back and thought id give a cheer for my grundfos circulation pump.

    I put a power meter just on the fish room back on 01/07/2008, it had only 50 kwh on the dials.

    Note the dates on the fishroom door

    Thats over 7 years.

    Aside from power outages and some tank maintainance, it has Run NON-STOP.

    It has never missed a beat, never been serviced ,never been looked at in all that time.

    And still running strong.

    What great investment that was.

    Cheers
