    Hi Guys,

    New to the forum and just starting my research on marine tanks so will most probably have lots of questions but I'm going to spend a lot of time reading the stickys in the beginner section first however my goal for my first tank was something like a minimum 4ft 250-300lt fish only tank, I'm not really keen on the live corals as yet and would like to get rolling with the basics and build up from there as I go.

    I currently have 3 freshwater tanks that I'm maintaining as well so I need something with an easy maintenance plan. I cant be too in depth with the tank because of work, family and other responsiblities however that does not mean I dont want to spend any time on the tank. I do understand the needs for regular water changes, filter maintenance etc. and I always love to keep that crystal clear look.

    Thanks in advance:thumbup:

    Salaam Zubaid, welcoem to the forum.
    word of advice, when buying equipment like lighting and skimmer and so on, do not buy equipment thats just good enough for afish only tank, if you are able to, rather spend extra and get equipment thats good enough for a reef so when you eventually want to add coral and so on, you dont need to buy again.

    Enjoy

    Ws to Nur, hamzah and NADEEM and thanks to all the others for the welcome.

    NADEEM, I think I've been bitten by the bug already cos I started doing some research and came across this article at about.com which is 15 easy to keep corals, would like some opinions of the corals that I have seen here:
    15 Easy Saltwater Aquarium Reef Corals - Easy Marine Aquarium Reef Corals - Easy Saltwater Aquarium Reef Corals For Beginners

    Its only the polyps that I am not interested in at present because they mentioned they are aggressive, invasive and have that neuro toxin that can affect humans but I guess they must have their place and time in certain setups but others did seem very interesting and colourful.
