    I wish to purchase a starter tank of 150 liters approx.ive never had marine fish..r they very difficult to keep and maintain??

    also ive heard u need to use reverse osmosis water..i have a filtration system attached to my tap at home etc..does that help

    as I only want to start with a small rock and an annenome and maybe few clown fish etc and perhaps a shrimp or 2...

    what do I look for in a 2nd hand tank and is it really a mission to keep once fully going and set up???

    ive seen the series FISH TANK KINGS and they make it look so easy with timers etc and self sustaining tanks

    thanks
    guys

    Welcome to MASA!
    The important part is to set up the system according to your lifestyle. If you travel a lot, Automate it. If you prefer hands on, Then do not automate :)

    But surely the biggest challenge is to be patient. Many a hobbyist quit because of lack of patience....
    And lastly, always ask questions. That is what this forum is for. :)
