    this site is real cool, but i'm wondering, is there a place where i can get info for beginning an aquarium that is already compiled. as apposed to sifting through tons of threads to get the knowledge i am after? perhaps MASA should make an articles section with articles containing info that is constantly added to. newbees could download these articles, study them and then ask questions. maybe in pdf format...

    The best I would say is to go through the beginners thread, but as you said it's allot of stuff. Eiher you can go on google and type in beginning a marine aquarium. There you'll get most of the facts and names so when you come back to the beginners forum you'll know for what to search if you want to find out more about something.

    hi finch and welcome to MASA, great to have you join.

    your idea is a good one and the links viper has given you above from the masa wiki are all good reads, and i think that was the original idea behind the wiki section, so that people could easily access info.

    i am sure viper will take this up with the other admins as they are constantly upgrading and developing masa.

    however reading through threads, seeing the questions and the answers of a number of people to the same question, often from different angles is very valluable and you would do well to read through some of the threads in the beginners sectiosn.

    do you have a tank, or wish to start one? is there anything specific that we can help you with at the mo?

    welcome and happy posting:)

    I'd recommend you invest in some good books. Then if that info isn't clear, you can always search this site and the web for explanations :)

    The crew on this forum are very helpful, and no question goes unanswered.


    Good luck.

    welcome finch.

    i suggested a similar idea (downloadable e-book) a while ago but I think agreement was reached (more ore less.....sometimes on MASA we agree to d isagree ;)) that the wiki is enough and that we should all start contributing
