    First of all, masahello ...

    Second, we are :teacher: ...

    Third, :mbounce: WE WANT PICS!!! (yes, even of an empty tank) :biggrin:

    Then, what do you plan on keeping? FOWLR (Fish Only With Live Rock)
    Softies and fish
    SPS

    We'll take it from there... :thumbup:

    cool

    Thx for the welcome I will go take pics now and post them .. as for what I want ..

    That is where you come in lets say I want to start slow .. few fish some rocks and so on .. not to intence but would like to expand.

    I have been to a ot of your newbies links ..

    I will start of by getting advice in the filtration system to get that in place and then move on

    I know this is going to be a real costly experiance so let start slow and win the worldcup in the end.

    Will post pics soon

    Welcome. A pic of the tank as it is will be great but include pics of the filter, top, side and behind so we can see whats happening and advise accordingly

    Also look at the members setups and choose one you like most or a few you like most then look at what is in there and then you will know what to get,more or less regarding your lights,filtration etc etc. As they said above that with pics we will be able to help a lot more. Oh,and very welcome.
