    Thank for the welcome.

    I am looking for smallish tank, something like a 120 liter.

    I was looking at maybe getting a Boyo TL 550, as I can get one with 4x24w Odessea lights for a very good price.

    But the main thing for me is to get something that I can keep a couple of Black And White Clown fishies and that is real easy to maintain and will not eat a hole in my savings account.

    But from what I understand from speaking to some guys they say it is a problem with the Boyo tanks to keep it running smooth.

    Went to Dorry Pets and had a look at their custom cube tank, so I might look at that, but I will have to save up a bit for that.

    HI Raboebi

    The Dorry Pets Custom Cube Tank is very nice, I will recommended it for the price and what you get, you also get a sump which gives you more water capacity, and allows for a small DSB for even more filtration.

    but like all thing in this hobby, you need to budget for it.

    my 2cents :whistling:

    Yip, Dorry got a starter nano system, a little bit bigger than a TL550 with the advantage that it can take standard T5 tubes. It does seem expensive if you only look at the price, but it got everything included, even ATU and RO chamber. So yes, I see you are in Centurion, do yourself a favour and do shop around FIRST before you take out your wallet.

    Other shops I frequent is Idol Marine and Pet Stop (I just wish I could go to Pet stop more often but it is out of my way)

    Anyway, welcome.

    Welcome.

    Agreed with guys above, go and have a look at some show tanks close to you, perhaps Idol or Dorry. Cant go wrong with them.
