    HEEELLlllooooOOooo

    I started out with fresh water fish for about 7years and decided to try marine.
    The tank has been cycling for about 8 weeks with live rock so for the last weeks i have been looking at my rocks and wiping the glass off patiently (and yes every1 thought i was loosing my noodles:lol: )...
    Its now about 2 months... bought some fish and everything is going "OK, i guess"...lol
    I have to admit that its a bit of a pain in the a$$ to maintain a marine tank.

    well don't know much about marine ,but yep...at least the live stock is still alive :yeahdude:
    About my tank
    - 1200x 600x 600
    - 4X T5 lights (2- blue and 2 white)
    - 300W heater
    - about 20kg of live rock i guess...
    - got a biocolour blenny, tomato clown, damsel and a chrome.
    - and of course a protein skimmer, sump and a stinky power head.

    that's that...

    Welcome...marines is so much better and more interesting than tropical bathwater. Don't get lazy, in order to have a good living system, you have to work at it. Good luck. Remember to post pics and updates.
    Read alot and ask alot :thumbup:
