    Hi guys,

    trust all is well.

    would like to get your thoughts on the boyu TL550?

    is it a good starter marine tank and is all the equipment that is built in sufficient for a starter tank?

    thanks guys

    I have the TL 450(the smaller one) and is working great,but I am running a sump with it. in regards to the built in equipment I don't have much experience.
    There is a thread specifically for TL 450 and 550
    http://www.marineaquariumsa.com/boyu-tl450-and-tl550-advice.html
    you will learn allot more from others experience there, and then you can make an informed dissension.
    hope this information helps

    and welcome to MASA
    Great people and great experience here.

    I bought an established 550 a few months ago. It is the perfect starter. Good luck

    Hey there,

    Started using the TL550 a few months ago, also my first tank.

    Very easy to setup and maintain thus far.

    That reminds me, I need to start posting pics of the tank :m79:

    They are good starter tanks - depending on what you would like to keep and how much you are paying for it. NEW they a bit pricey, I think you can get a new/second hand nano with some good second hand equipment at the same price or for a little more, which will give you greater joy. You wont be as limited as to what you can keep.
    But by saying that :
    I had one for years and gave me a lot of joy. You will have to change a few things at the back in the filter compartments and by doing that, you can have a fantastic tank with easy care corals with a few nano compatible fish
