not fish in yet lad as had to stop filling due to the big lad mark a mate trimming the silicone from the dtress bars front and read while i was refitting the front door, didnt notice till i was gonna sort condensation glasses out so decide to stop fill till i go to maidenhead tomorrow for aquatic silicone to re seal it,as it is its 3/4 full it will be resealed across the stress bars before filling completely so hope fully the fish will be in it monday. plus no pics from me tonight as got invited out for tea to my sisters so never got chance to upload pics but they will defo be uploaded tomorrow,PS A BIG BIG THANKS LADS FOR ALL THE HELP FOR UNLOADING AND GETTING THIS MONSTER IN TO PLACE and hope to return the favour if you ever need it :thumbsup:
