    I believe he was born in Pizzoferrato, about 50 miles south from here. Never really been to that part of the region, probably because we are quite content with what is on our doorstep. Weather has remained quite mild so far, still enjoying walks on the beach in our shirtsleeves every morning and even the dusting of snow if a fortnight ago up the mountains has melted away. Given us a chance to go up there and enjoy some typical rustic fare (arrosticini) before the snow shuts the valley for winter.

    Hi Mick, are your fish at your retailer yet? What news?
    I actually have had a hole in the wall since the get-go. As my discus tank is where my bedside table used to be it means all the pipes go through the eall to tehe kitchen on the other side, where I have tha barrell, canister filter and air pump. This makes the bedside tank feasable as just a slight hiss from the limewood block I use instead of an airstone and a slight hum from the small wavemaker, both noises easily covered by the snoring of the great dane that sleeps under the tank. I hava a few 3 way taps that make it easy to empty the tank (water goes to the veggies), syphon it and refill. It still requires me to manually turn the taps and the pump on and off but I prefer to empty the tank and put the water back in rather than have a continuous drip change. I hope that if and when we return to the UK I'll be able to build one or two monster tanks (approx 9'x2'x2' + sumps so some sort of better automation will be required so I am looking for options

    To me Paul that sounds perfect,

    We dont have the space you have in Italy so our dogs are smaller but I bet our mini Yorkshire Terrier who weighs about 4.5 lbs (and sleeps in a basket beside our bed) would out snore even your Great Dane hehehe
    I have some of my noisy equipment out of the room and in my shed as well which helps great.

    What a great idea with watering your vegie garden. I might try something like that for the summer, in Ireland there is no shortage of water in the winter but we do occasional need a little more in the summer and all the nutrients would be brill !!

    Monster tanks rule ! I would love one some day !!!!
