Nearly go live for your new venture, you must be excited The tank is looking fab as usual, have you got round to using the new FM pellets yet? Cheers, Andy

Yeah, just having some fun with Swiss VAT and banks.... otherwise all set and ready for Monday.

Yep been running the pellets since early Jan, have topped up with them so still running a mix that is probably 60% Bio Aquatek pearls and 40% FM pellets. Nothing to say on how they run, pretty much as any other pellet I'd guess, float a bit, then slime up a bit, then clean off and run. Have to say that P04 is now at zero for the first time and N03 is almost nothing, not sure if that has been impacted by the new pellets or something else and i have really been increasing the feeding. Will top up with them soon, so will likely be running majority FM pretty soon.

Well good luck with the bank & fingers crossed for Monday

What will your FM range be now? I'm using FM balling & trace B's, UltraBio, UltraBak, UltaMinS and UltraOrganics....and UltraPhos....I'm coming to the end of the Bak so was thinking of switching to the pellets. Did you get the FM pellet reactor? Cheers, Andy

Still using a Deltec FR509 reactor for pellets, regarding FM potions I'm using Balling lite with the usual FM trace elements and that's it from FM, otherwise KZ sponge power, kallium, fluoride, poci glow and spur2

Very well indeed, first customer signed up ! 999 more to go.....

Looks promising though but I guess you'll need to ask me again in around another 2yrs to see if the biz plan was realistic or not

Next week, Germany, Spain and Sweden it's a shame you can't buy corals with air miles

I try but I miss flights as it is but that's another story....

It's been an ambition to do so and i will try harder to see some but never usually get beyond the public aquariums although this is already a rare treat. Thailand seems worth a visit for some reason
