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.

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
