Ok, thank you all for your advice, at the moment, things are looking good. Current stock is in signature. Big issue is still the white residue on the outside of the glass, but doesn't look as bad as it does in the photos. Next job is to sort out the lighting, new lid should be here in a week or so.
The Barbs went back to the LFS, owner was very friendly in taking them back and exchanging them. Went to another store on the way home, some Marble Hatchets caught my eye, apparently they very rarely get them, I have absolutely fallen in love with them, will reserve them tomorrow :)
Here is a current photo:
