Hi all

Ive gone and bought a new house this week. Basically it's why I havn't been about too much as we had a fair few things to do to our current place and travelling about to see houses always takes a lot of time, especially with the wee one.

Anyway, got ourselves a 3 bedroom, detached bungalow which comes with over 100 square meters of private walled gardens,a big garage and a big workshop (ceph room) to play in!!! Got a site picked out in the lounge already for a nice big tank!

So, I am going to have a fairly hectic couple of months and will be offline a lot. However, I leave you in the more than capable hands of Nancy for ceph care and all my other Mod & SC pals.

I can still be contacted but just wont have the same amount of time to get through all threads.

I'll be back soon. and once i get my system up and running it'll be time for some cephalopod keeping again...

Cheers
Colin

Indeedy, bestest of luck.

I've just cleared the garage out in order to go full-on ceph-keeping at home. Am doing so in order to be in complete control of everything that's going on (which is not the case at present - too many dirty hands, casual observers, tamperers and problems with flow).

:welcome: We have 2 suppliers, if you check the recent posts, Octopets and Fish Supply but I believe their babies are not ready to be shipped yet. Please read up under our ceph care forum! Do you have a tank yet?

And welcome and enjoy!!!

Colin,

I've seen a lot of reef people online who plumb PVC through the floor for a common water system with giant 75 gallon refugiums and sumps in their basement. Have you thought about doing something like this in the new house for a big cuttle tank?
