    I know the feeling. She Who Casts No Shadow asked me yesterday why I was talking in a whisper in the house. I told her that I didn't want Mark Zuckerberg listening to my every word. She laughed, I laughed, Alexa laughed, Siri laughed......

    Do you have any timescales for the new tank, or are you just in the exploration stage?

    Im just exploring options at the moment.

    You know this is my first big tank, but I’ve learned and I simply love it.

    I have a lot of time on my hands between flights, and need something to keep me occupied.

    ‘If’ I do it, it will probably be around 5000 litres total volume

    But I haven’t decided for sure, just getting quotes and looking into it.

    If you get your big tank you could open to the public "shauns sealife centre" lol

    If i do it the display would be around 3000 litres and Im guessing the sump would be the length of the base cabinet so another few 1000, although this could also go outside.

    I will have to decide once I get a quote.

    Its one of those things that will look magnificent, because I have the finance to fill it up, but do I really want the upheaval, maybe Im getting old and set in my ways. But then again it would be exciting!

    You could have the sump/water go outside and utilize it to make a display like at the Bellagio in Las Vegas

    I'm just thinkng 'out of the box' !

    What do you use to clean your front glass with? just a flipper magnet? or do you get your arms wet?

    I have a Flipper Max and change the blade around every 4 months and it works perfectly. I don’t however leave it in the tank as I think it spoils the look but that’s just me, so I get my fingers wet when removing it

    I also have a long scraper for the back wall and scrape it every few weeks to keep it reasonably clean. If you do it regularly it’s easier than when it’s built up.

    I also use the Flipper Max. They are expensive to buy, but worth it. I leave mine in the tank, usually parked up in a top corner, as I clean the glass every day.

    Thanks gents, Nobby you saved me asking on your thread lol. I already have the flipper max pro and the normal flipper max ready to be deployed, you both have immaculate glass hence the question :)

    Have you ever seen robosnail? I had one on my previous tank, a bit of a gimmick tbh it did an ok job but only on the soft stuff and not all the way to the bottom of the glass, but the biggest issue with it was, it was massive. There's been another called Moai but looks like that's never going to see the light of day, its been in development for ever

    The 'robotic' ones look sort of ok, but I understand they can't go round corners, so pretty useless really. Sometimes the ole elbow grease is the best method :)

    I’ve seen all of the robot versions and they have issues.

    I clean my glass every 2 days normally and it only takes a few minutes

    Oh and whats a Flipper Max Pro, and yes I have already googled it!! Lol. I assume you mean the large one which I already have?
