Yeah I'm stoked! I know it's going to be a sexy piece of kit! And plenty of storage for frags after the frag night too

Hopefully I can keep it looking nice and organised!
Pretty much all the same stuff Once I sell the cube though I'm going to get a Vectra M1 for a new return and a Gyre XF150 and that'll be my upgrades for the minute and down the track I'll get a 3ft lighting unit to add but for the moment I'm sticking with the 2ft I'm using

It's really fantastic to have a reef at home again too!! I most certainly couldn't have done it without your help though! Dave's been pretty helpful too I guess lol
The successes I hope to achieve in future with the tank will be greatly attributed to you two!!

I guess I'll just have to turn it into a flubber tank then

I'll use the cash to buy anything new that Dave gets in for you then

I just thought I'd post a little update to say I'm enjoying my holiday in Phu Quoc, Vietnam I'm curious to see what the tank looks like after two weeks with my lovely other half feeding and caring for it I know it's in safe hands as she's terrified of anything going wrong on her watch poor girl!

We're staying at a place called Freedomland and it's a homestay that's really back to nature! Wifi is only in the common area and no AC anywhere! It's a bit hot and sweaty this time of year but it's been unreal being here! The food is absolutely fantastic!! I cannot explain how good it has been, every meal is amazing! The place itself is lovely too! Enjoy some pics








Just your casual breakfast too!

It is a scientific fact that wrangers are sensitive to heat Flo, the DNA isn't all there or is a bit crooked or something

You do know why they have razor wire hanging over the top of Freedomland don't you Dom ?



It's to deter the rabid monkeys from dropping down on stupid unsuspecting tourists mate - bet they didn't mention that in the bloody travel brochure.....

Apparently the color red really sets them off.........

Some more food while we were away, pick your own seafood and it was amazing!!




I now know how you prepare giant clams to eat as well...


Another breakfast, all fresh and cooked to order by the wonderful chefs! Vietnamese coffee is my new favourite thing too!! Just glorious!!


I have to say that Freedomland, Phu Quoc is one of the best and most memorable holidays I've been on! The staff were absolutely wonderful and like a family after just a few days. If anyone is off to Vietnam and looking for something a little different, I could not recommend going to Freedomland more!!
The front deck of out little bungalow:




Outdoor shower looking into the jungle was sensational!

Of course I'm back in Singapore now which is why I'm back on the online world too haha been a bloody good weekend so far! More food than you can poke a stick at as well I also went to my favourite place! The S.E.A Sinapore aquarium but that's coming in another update
Here's last nights artery clogging, fat producing, heavy and rich as anything, Swedish Raclete dinner!! It's just melted cheese with everything and good wine!
Cheese platter to start:


Wall to wall cheese and the little kitchen




Then the main event! A biga*s wedge of cheese to melt and smother everything else in




Needless to say I nearly exploded but it was outstanding and would recommend it to anyone!
