UK’s largest private aquarium

    Well done mate, I am a keen fish keeper in Gibraltar and looking forward in converting a garage into a fish room……some day, with different rift valley set ups of at least 4 X 2000L aquariums. I currently have 5 aquariums at home ranging from 200L to 1000L but only wish i could do something like you have. ENJOY :-D
