Seeing as he is way too modest to comment here I will give him a buzz tomorrow to let him know, typical Darren, mild mannered Genius.

It's NOT "Chee lick", NOT "Chee Chee Licks"!!! Cichlids is pronounced as "Sick Lids"!!!!!

Nice find Jim. I only got a copy of the mag a few days after you posted this.
I was waiting for them to send me a copy of the photo to post here, but the format split the photo in two (for 2 pages in the mag).

For those of you who have seen PFK i need to point out some of the text is wrong. In particular the prices quoted, and not just the euro to sterling.

Thank you very much for the comments people. Praise indeed.
Although some of the comments were a bit strong. I mean “Guru”..? Do i really look as old as a Guru ?.
Note to self, grow a beard. I’m already starting to show some grey hairs so the beard should be easy.
As for that sheag fella. He just loves the attention (im glad you didn't miss spell slag) :lol:

I did like this tank and more so enjoyed putting it together.
Myself and Peter Kirwin (zig) were waiting for a delivery of large and unique pieces of wood and came up with this design.
I think this is a great example of how a hardscape (wood \rock) can make an aquarium.

Thanks again for the comment.
Darren
