    hi!

    welcome to MASA!

    instead of linking to images, you can use the upload image or quick upload to add images.

    Let us know more about your tank, experience etc

    AHA...Just cant add pics

    Hello Again

    I see that I can add text , just not links to Pics or upload Pics.

    It has been 5 months since I began reefing and wow, what a learning curve.

    My wife is convinced that I am addicted as I spend all my free time in front of my tank...Is this normal??;)

    Anyway, My system is a 1.2m Jebo, drilled with overflow box, custom stand & sump.

    I am a bit of a DIY nut, so I have made up the following so far:

    1) Custom Panning dual Powerhead System (2 x 220v PHs & Microwave synchronous motor)..Gives a real slow to & fro wave motion, much slower than a wave box, for only a few rands!

    2) DIY ATO with dual safety limit switches from RODI via Kalk Stirrer

    3) DIY Automatic continuous water change system with remote Mixing Bin, heater & mixer, as well as DIY overflow siphon pipe from Sump.

    4) DIY LED Moon Strip - Made from "Modified" 220v LED Downlighter...Now 1.2 m long strip- Gives a nice shimmer, even with 6 x T5 tubes.

    5) I had 2 x DIY Reactors for Carbon & Rowaphos, but taken them out and now simply running bags in sump return...Seems to work just fine.

    I look forward to sharing this awesome hobby with you all, and will try to post pics later when the site lets me:)

    Cheers
