Whoops...I've done it...!
...I just bought a 4 foot tank (350 litre), cabinet, and four 9L bags of ADA Amazonia from my LFS. They matched the amazing online deal I found. I'm stunned, but delighted.
It's being delivered at the end of next week so I'll have to relocate my current tank to the spare room this weekend to make way for it! How exciting. I feel a journal coming on.
Now I've made that decision I can concentrate on my flora and fauna stocking list. to add to my cories, otos and cherry barbs.

LOL, I don't think there was any "Whoops" about this.......
Congrats on the new set-up
I've looking forward reading and seeing pics of this new set-up as it comes togetherIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

Woohoo! I look forward to the journal and expect LOTS of pictures!People say if you can't say something nice then don't say anything at all... Then they wonder why am I so quiet.
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.

Cheers, yes. I'm excited (and feel I may have spent money I don't have)!
My steps planned so far:
1. Move current tank to spare room (that'll probably take me all day!)
2. Set up new tank with substrate and one additional piece of bogwood (yet to purchase).
3. Cycle tank and allow substrate to leech ammonia until it stops.
4. Transfer stock, current bogwood, plants, and external filter to new tank.
5. Clean old tank until it is immaculate - then sell it! (at least that's the plan)
It'll be at least ten days until I start a journal...but my trusty compact will be at the ready to document the process.
