    If this is covered please forgive me. Woke up with a bright light in my head:)

    I have been keeping marines for years but am a complete newbie when it comes to all the new equipment available to help with keeping a tank in top condition.

    How about a sticky with what equipment to add to your system. Some things like skimmers I know about but others not so sure. There must be "have to have" and "cool to have" .

    Meaning ;
    Skimmer. Most people will agree this is a have to have. As far as i know it removes small particles from the water.
    calcium reactor, really needed or just make it easier to keep calcium at proper level?
    Kalkwasser Have no clue what it does or if it is needed or just helps
    Electronic testers, etc. Stuff you can leave on so that you can check all is ok without having to worry about getting out the test kit for this or that.

    There is a lot of other equipment that I am not sure of where to find it or what it does and I am sure a lot of other people, "ecspeccialy" (dit is n groot woord:whistling:) those who are new to the hobby.

    If this has been done please point me in the right direction.

    Cheers
    Geoff

    Cool, this sounds like a good one for newbies to come to terms with equipment for a tank.
