    Hi everyone,

    Name is Riaan, I am 35 years old and hail from Alberton, Gauteng.

    I am tankless at the moment (have been for many years), but a colleague of mine (who is a member of this forum) has gotten that old bug to awaken, which is now nibbling at the back of my consciousness.

    I used to keep tropical freshwater aquariums back when I was a teenager/student, however funds were always an issue, and so my tanks always were a bit of a Heath Robinson affair as I made DIY plans and whatnot. :whistling:

    Now, I'm older and, ahem, gainfully employed, and so I can do things without worrying about funds (too much - yeah I know I'm going to wish I took the blue pill) :lol:

    Been reading a lot on here and learning a lot! Thanks to everyone!

    Regards,
    Riaan

    Thanks, guys!

    Nick, I see you're in my neck of the woods. Whereabouts do you stay? I'm in Verwoerdpark.

    I always had the bog standard 3ft pet shop setups in the past, and always wanted something bigger, purely for aesthetics.

    Looking for something that is at least 1.2m long and 50cm high, bigger if preferable (from what I've read on here, it seems space is always at a premium with marine tanks, so I'd like to go as big as I can afford)

    I'm looking forward to this! :)
