    That is an exceptional broad question @droopy :)

    I think what you first need to decide is what exactly your expectations are. What size did you have in mind? Are you a true aquarist or more of a hobbyist?

    Also have a look at the beginners fora: Beginner Discussions - Marine Aquariums South Africa

    And the Local Fish Shop index to find a shop near you :)

    This tank has already been sold unfortunately.

    What I can recommend however is to get something closer to 200L, these nano systems can be a bit more of a headache to maintain as they are far more susceptible to rapid changing conditions. eg air, hear or spikes on nasty's in the water.

    Maybe go have a look + chat at idol marine in Midrand, they are a great source of information and should still have smallish tanks on the floor :)

    Hello and Welcome Droopy

    Seeing that you are in Centurion, I suggest you visit Dorry Pets.

    another sponsor is Pet Stop SA, in Pretoria Moot area.

    If I may add, take things slowly, don't be in too much of a rush. Chat to lfs as much as possible, read through the forums on this site, guys here are generally helpful. And when you decide to buy and set up again take it slowly. Patience I think is key in this hobby and it will pay off. I have had my tank for a year and am still no where near what I would love to have. And I am no expert. Welcome and enjoy.
