    Hey Guys,

    Im absolutely new to the world of Saltwater tanks, ive never personally owned a Freshwater tank, however my brother owns a tank and we had it set in my lounge for the 8 months whilst he lived with me. fresh water tank with lobsters turtles, and a range of other species. i gained a little experience of the care during the time

    Now im hooked, soo... i want to setup my own and opt for the saltwater bit of things

    I need advice on a decent setup, nothing extremely major and tooooo costly although i know the buck dont matter once you really lay eyes on them :biggrin:

    Ill be needing all the expertise and assistance and will like help everystep of the way


    Whatever you may suggest will be much appreciated :)


    Thx

    Zee

    Welcome bud.....

    Best advice I can give you is read @Tobes link on his signature.... Then read it again, then start researching.... Many of us started head over heels, wasted a lot of money, then took some advice..... :thumbup:

    cool,welcome to have you onboard. Take a look at some members setups and alot of photos and decide what you want to stock,how much space you have and at some sort of budget. Then start looking at either for new equipment or on the for sale forum. you can get decent second hand equipment. But it is important to take time and read and not buy on impulse. That way you will save alot of money and alot of lives(fish and corals) . Its fun and exciting to setup a new aquarium but can really test your patience and thats the one thing you gonna need. Just do alot of research. Have fun and ask as many questions as you possible could. Welcome to have you onboard.
