Back in the fold

Hello all, 

I'm finally returning to the world of reefing after a half decade long hiatus, after my last tank was given away by a vengeful ex, I’ve finally gotten to the point of being where I can restart.

so after getting a shopping list together and purchasing it all I’m now waiting on delivery, can’t wait to get a build thread up and running!

anyway, off to trawl the forum some more, take care all

Cheers all,

Well, it will be something based on the Fluval Evo 13.5, the only bit in my list I can't source in the UK without paying a fortune is an intank media basket

I can't say that, but it would be pretty cool!

Sadly the little old Evo will have to do

Oh another Brit. Where are you based? Have you tried some UK based forums classifieds?

Welcome from an Evo owner.  I know the Intank media basket is expensive and only available from Charterhouse Aquatics in the UK, but I find it really useful.  I tried making my own but it was a disaster.

I'm from Eastbourne, down on the south coast, and I keep checking with Charterhouse, and it's not and won't be in stock anytime soon, I just have problems spending around half the tank cost on a media basket hahahaha

Sweet. I was born just along from you in Worthing. Live in Leeds now. I've seen a couple of media baskets sell on ultimatereef for 40-45. Have a look about, Ebay and Gumtree are worth a check as well.

I was born in Hastings, raised in Bognor Regis, and have moved to Ebo 4 years ago, living the dream 😄

Crikey, I only bought mine 3 weeks ago after them being out of stock for ages.  Keep checking their website as before they came into stock for me I was told 6 weeks but they were in stock in half the time.

Cheers for the tip! To be honest, after spending over a monkey on the kit list I should probably hold off, swmbo has already raised an eyebrow 😉

I know the feeling, I bought an AI Prime, jumpguard, ATO as well as the media basket. My husband was not impressed!
