    Hi All ,
    My Name is Shaun Venter and am 43 years old,i live on the Bluff and have always had tanks>>well up until my daughter was born seven years ago and time became an issue.
    Have grown up diving for my own specis with the likes of Horst and Stephaan Dissman, Morris Mussle and Roy Jackson.
    I have even at one stage had my own shop that dealt solely with marines in Cape Town.
    Have caught a lot of specis from goldies to Formosa , beans , multis. bispinosus ,the odd golden head and even my fair share of gemmatum.
    I have just bought a tank from George Helakas which measures 1.930 x 650 x 800 and has the whole sump etc set up .So keen to get back into the game and am going to concentrate on getting my soft corals established and the tank sorted before I even think of adding some invert friendly fish.
    I look forward to reading and learning about all the advancements and experiences from the rest of the members.
    Been told by the wife that the tank will not be set up till all wiring and lighting is sorted hahahaha so yeah Me gots some work to do...
    I am also a cycad , orchid, cacti,snake and tarantula collector however have down scaled on these too as I want to get back in the water and have time to do what I love most......Collect Specis
    Hope to chat to you all in the future.
    God Bless
    Shaun
