Ja-nee - 'n baie warm welkom hier op MASA! Ongelukkig moet almal maar "ingels" gebruik. Ek dink dat 'n hele paar lede darem al GOED geleer engels tik het met hierdie forum!
Just to translate: A very warm welcome to MASA! There are quite a few membes on MASA who have learnt how to type in English, due to MASA. Unfortunately, being an international forum with a lot of international members, English is the "tool of the trade"
Good luck and enjoy our company.
A warm welkom! Ek hoop jy geniet dit hier by ons!!
Hi, got only a tropical setup and want to convert to marine, but got no idea how to start and all the costs. NEED A BIT OF HELP.
Well, the first tip of advice I can give you is research!
What I did when I joined this forum was to read some of the threads of members that started up new systems. This was great as you learn from their mistakes.
You can read my thread for a start: Lets do this! - Marine Aquariums of South Africa
Most importantly, you need to decide what marine species you would like to keep and plan and build your system according to the specific needs.
q1, what is the size of the tropical tank. With Marines, the bigger the better (up to a point obviously)
q2, can the bottom or backside be drilled for overflow pipe.
q3, is there space under tank or in cabinet for a sump
q4, in the canopy, is there space for better and more light units than those used by freshwater tanks
First answer these questions. If all OK on these, yes it should be worthwhile to convert this tank to a marine tank. Else it might be easier to sell this setup and get a marine tank. Check the classifieds, Tanks and equipment are normally available at a more affordable price.
In the meantime, read other threads, especially all those in the beginners forum. And learn...
