the list is pretty big and colourful cant wait to see what you choose what colours and fish and so on. Also setup would you want it planted or hardscape?

I'm living my life, but not necessarily in the right order :)

I'm looking to do something very different from what I've done for the last decade. I'm looking towards about 400 L. I don't want any big fish, I've done that for years.I'm looking for lots of movement and colour. Definitely lots of plants, although it will really depend on how well I can maintain them without getting too complicated and expensive.

The pH from my tap is around 7.5 I believe, I will have to check again. It's actually 6.0 in my big aquarium.

I quite like the Juwel aquariums, you can actually get them to put in a nice backdrop. Anyway, this is all something that will happen in the next year hopefully, it will definitely not be happening this side of Christmas, that is for sure.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

planted setup always caught my eyes ... the upkeep is too hard and time consuming. the Juwel setup looks amazing.

africans are out of the question?

I got my tank from ND Aquatics think they are good price & they can do backgrounds.

As far as fish, you NEED a load of Corys & Giant Danios. I've had both & they are both fantastic to watch.

Corys are great. I even like the albinos which are the cheapest. If you have a big slate cave they will all hang out like a big gang.
