Hi gang been registered a little while without posting until today asking for advice on a sick fish so better give a little info about me.. I got back into fish keeping maybe about 3months ago previously my passion was/is plecs/catfish.. Now I'm married snd the Mrs liked the look of pretty fish i thought i can have both hehe..  previously i had zebras royal mango ples to name a few ( can't believe a zebra plec is now over 100 ) so whilst getting some fish she likes ive been getting a couple of plecs.. current tank is 120l but just got a 522foot 450litre although it may actually hold more.. just starting to get all the gear together for this beast of a tank ! Main focus is a large centre piece of bogwood if anyone knows where i can get a piece let me know..

Tc & Happy fish keeping !

Welcome, Norie!  :wave: Glad that your partner is sharing the fishkeeping hobby. I'm very envious of a 5-foot tank!

Hi Norie and welcome to the forum. I would love to have room for a tank that big. It should be fun stocking it.

Hello and welcome :wave:

Great to hear that you've got back into fish keeping, and that your other half is joining in.  :)

Large pieces of wood - try Gumtree and ebay.
If you can't find anything you like there, contact Aquarium Gardens and ask them the size of their largest pieces. I'm not 100% sure about bogwood, but I saw some huge pieces of driftwood there last week. They may also be able to get hold of what you want from their suppliers.

I hope that you plan to provide us with lots of pics of your tank as you are setting it up, we love pics.  ;D
