    Hi all,

    Decided for some unknown reason to start a marine tank again. I kept one a few years back and took it down due to load shedding and financial issues. Things have returned to 'normal' now and it is time to take the plunge again. I think I may miss the smell of a skimmer in the morning.

    I have been keeping freshwater fish for the past few years and my interest has waned somewhat.
    My trips to the local pet store always end up with me staring into the marine displays and yesterday decided now is the time.

    My hopes are to start small and build it up after a while. Equipment, care and maintenance of tanks, I'm sure, have change in the past 4 years so expect a few questions and I look forward to the salty ride.
