Well ladies my cousin Stuart and I had a drive this afternoon and arrived at the big Bird , Aquatics , Repile and others complex nr Sevenoaks.
first started out trying to find some nuggets for Toky-Ohki as she is on a new high roughage and high fibre diet to help with her soft poop problems , got two bags of nuggets and saw three of the cutest Chocolate dutch bunnies that were not far short of being kits , one in particular was doing the binkies everywhere .
Eventualy after loading the trolley with various bunny and mouse related items plus stuff some bits Stuart needed for his own critters , we made our way to the Aquatics building , and not long after arriving I had my eye on a unit and tank of the Juwel
variety , it is a very similar colour to the unit I have under my 4 ft coldwater tank and had the exact same handles as the ones I added onto my coldwater unit not long after I bought that one , basically it was the handles that sold it to me.
It is a bigger tank than the base it rests on but saying that there is a lot of storage space underneath that I am well happy about , it is a lot higher than my coldwater setup , the tank is nice and big but the main thing is I still have floorspace around low down.
Stuart and I put the base together late this evening rather like an IKEA flat pack construction that was pretty easy to do , the tank was then placed on top and the internal filter constructed , after stuart left A.K.A reznik , I started putting the Aquarium compost in and patting out the tography of the environment within.
I have to wash the grit first before putting it in and thats going to be a hard job , the Aquarium and stand came as a package with the whole caboodle and for only £199 I thought that was a good deal , but what with Stu's bits my Bloodworm x2 , Eheim Aquaball 2210 , Gravel , Aquarium compost, Bunny and Rabbit stuff I ended up laying waste to over £350 squid.

the moths in my pocket are being burnt alive .
I have got some pics of the Setup as it is not with just the Aquarium soil inside , I will have to post them up tommoraz or whenever I get the chance.
