5.0 out of 5 stars A great aquarium for the novice or pro., 1 May 2013
I can highly recommend this type of aquarium supplied by All Pond Solutions. The aquarium arrives on a pallet well wrapped. Just remember to check the tank for any damage before you sign for it off the courier. The under tank storage took me about 40 minutes to put together. Just take your time when constructing it. It's advisable to have someone give you a hand when building it. Although the storage cupboard doors didn't come with any handles it didn't matter as I added my own to match my room decor. You just have to drill a couple of pilot holes for the screws.

The hood assembly was reasonably easy to put together with the filter/pump assembly. Again, take you time and follow the instructions. What wasn't included in the instructions is that the pump comes with a short, clear silicon tubing with a black stopper. This goes on pipe inlet positioned on the left hand side of the pump housing. It's an optional 'Venturi' so you can have air bubbles shooting out the left side of the pump.

Heater was good quality and straight forward to add in the tank. A little sticker thermometer is also provided.

The Filters come with all the items you will need. The only minor niggle is that the mesh bags have slightly too much Carbon (Charcoal) and Ceramic rings which makes it fiddly closing the Filter casing (I just opened them and removed a small amount). For info I put the ceramic rings in the left compartment and the activated carbon in the right Compartment. I then covered both the filters boxes with the supplied Bio Balls.

In the base of the aquarium I used 16 Kg of 'Pettex Roman Gravel Speckled Sand' (make sure you wash it several times so it doesn't cloud your aquarium water) topped with 5 Kg of small Gravel, 2 Kg of pebbles ('Kelkay Green Angel Whirlpool') , couple of pieces of 'Mopani Bogwood' and an tree trunk ornament. The tank was then filled with water after adding a few plants. Once filled, I added 50ml of 'Tetra Aqua Safe Water Conditioner', then 25ml of 'API Quick Start Fish Tank Aquarium Water Conditioner Bacteria'. Although the last chemical isn't essential, it's speeds up the conditioning of the water so you can add some fish sooner rather than later. The tank was then left to settle for 3 days. I added a few 'Neon Tetra' today with a few 'Bronze Corydoras'. I'll then leave them to settle for a week before adding a few more :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Cross Trainer, 29 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really easy to build. I had one query regarding a 'metal washer' as I couldn't see where it went on the diagram. All it took was a quick email to JTX Fitness and the company got back to me that day saying it was just a spare. Looks good, works great. Just remember to keep an eye on tightening the nuts and bolts occasionally. For the price I think you'll struggle to get better especially with the service warranty and helpfulness which is offered. :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking bit of kit, 16 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Don't tend to do many reviews on Amazon but this item is one exception to the rule. This Leaf Blower is a fantastic piece of kit for the price. Once it's assembled it looks a lot more expensive as the build quality was better than expected. As other reviewers have said it's pretty powerful and easily deals with wet leaves. Neighbour's spotted it and now everyone wants to play with it or own one. The only down side is the cable could do with being 3-4 metres longer but this is just a minor niggle as extension cables/reels are cheap enough to buy. Even if it only last a few year it's still money well spent. It shreds leaves great for using in compost which is another added bonus. I might even buy another one and put it away for a backup. :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great wallet!, 27 Feb 2012
Easily holds 16 Credit cards, Driving licence, railcard, cash etc. Might result in a fat wallet but easily slips into a jeans pocket. It's excellent quality and even if only lasts a few year I'd gladly buy another :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars Wrong size frame originally, 27 May 2011
Unfortunately the bike was originally titled '21 inch frame' so it was sent back and so was its replacement. Looks like Amazon have updated the description to accurately reflect the true frame size. Apart from that don't be put off. It's a good product at a cracking price so you won't be disappointed. OK the handle bars may be small when you consider the twist gear but, apart from that it's a good product. When it arrives check the treads on the tyres to make sure they are fitted to the wheels in the correct running direction as shown on the wall of the tyre. Just a 5 minute job to turn the tyre round.
