Thank you. It's been a lot of experimentation to get to this point (money too but you know that).

What barbarians are you people to be smoking tortoises and the like? What do you do with the shell; even chickens wont eat that?

Apparently
If coronavirus has one silver lining it should be the return of the bow and curtsy. A handshake can be an awkward thing – a clumsy, clammy grapple. But a woman breathes something of herself into her curtsy.

She can make the gesture demure or haughty, coy or brazen… She can swish her skirts alluringly or bob coldly.

Beautiful fish tank.... Nice one. I used to keep tropical fish, a tank about that size. Id imagine marine fish are more high maintenance with balance of the water and cleaning. Very nice though.

It’s a wonderful looking tank, I won’t let my husband see it, he keeps going on about having fish again, we had them pre-Canada (nothing like yours dbd, ours were very ordinary, but still needed quite a bit of attention) but he kept going away and there would constantly be one dead...it was most distressing, and he blamed me, he didn’t say much, but I quietly felt it . I like fish. The aquarium in Quebec City is fantastic.

I've had several tropical tanks in my life but never fancied the step up in work/cost of a marine tank. Yours looks lovely though, dbd.

Thanks all. It is very minor league but is improving month on month, it's been running for about a year having replaced a larger but less technically sophisticated tank. I don't consider the workload significant, I suppose two hours a week total. Cost though, yes.
