I'm no sure Carol , I had a quick Google and only see an outfitter in London and more tank pics ?
It's certainly quite a setup either way

If it is him he had a L shaped tank? Yes he had a place in London,and its a great  advertizement for the products. But .i dont think he sticks his head in his own sump sos to speak.
There was a chap from Singapore or maybe Hong Kong? Went by the name Vanquish , Lots of T5s  ,again if memory serves. He had a fantastic tank.

If your getting the impression I am not a member of Mr D&Ds fan club you will be correct.

Thanks:

Yes, that's him (and his mate is the other D).

That tank burst!  They lost almost everything.  Not sure what the situation is now.

Could this be the rebuild then , the article is only a couple of days old ?
It did say the tank has been stripped and rebuilt several times

When the world was young and just forming,I frequented a forum,where if legend is true ,it is not good for ones bank balance to cast aspersions in the direction of said gentlemans range of equipment. He has a reputation to be quick to seek reparation in the courts.

Plus after being a Deltec freek I discovered the stuff wasnt imo as good as its price tag would lead one to belive,plus again its no good speaking to them because at least one of them has a problem understanding simple logic...

I could go on, but I will leave it therehis ipad only has so much battery life  *D
