    Hi,

    My Name is Sascha. German living in the Dominican. We are actual starting to Build our House here in the D.R. ! The Tank will have a Size of 6 mtr. (Length) x 1,10 mtr (hight) x 1,20 mtr (wide) ! Big is Beautiful. :thumbup: The good point is that I can use the Water, Livesand and Livestone from the Ocean here. Not sure jet if I we will take it from the atlantic or from the caribean side. Still a Long way to go.

    20 years ago i was in this Hobby with some 10 small Tanks Sweetwater.

    Welcome to MASA! (You know SA = South Africa and not South America right?)

    Not quite the same size but don't forget our other "Rob", Bob's Reef 2 - Marine Aquariums South Africa and in general the other stuff in the "Supersized" section.

    Wow, awesome build Sascha!

    How far is your house from the shore? Your house looks like it's on a hill as well... can you pump directly or are you going to cart around containers to fill up that 10% waterchange? :lol:
