Hi All
I live in Durban and am a total beginner to reef keeping.
Are there any monthly meetings that I could attend to meet everyone?
Many thanks

WELCOME to MASA Mark. I am in Cape Town, so unfortunately I cannot help you directly. We will have to wait for Mekaeel, Alan, Viper (Dean) to come over to this thread and answer your question.

While you are waiting, please go and have browse at the links in Hennie's (Reef Maniac) forum/thread:
Handy links - Marine Aquariums of South Africa

Please ask as many questions as you can, and learn a LOT before you start buying marine stuff..

Do you have a tank already? Or not? If so, could you please post some pictures of everything in, on and around your tank (including technical specifications, hard-ware, etc)..

Here's how to post pictures:

Welcome Mr Sparrow,
Feel free to ask any questions - no matter how daft you might think they are - do you know what you want to achieve yet? if not have a look round the members tank spec section and see if anything grabs your attention.

Thanks

Hey Guys, thanks for all the welcome postings!
I don't have a tank at the moment, so have no idea where to start and was hoping to learn as much as possible before purchasing, I am in no rush!
My other hobbies include freediving and fishing, and these have sparked an interest in keeping a tank!
I am looking forward to meeting everyone!
Cheers Mark

Hi Hi captain, welcome to MASA - You better sell your ship now, this site and your new tank will keep you too busy to go hunt for treasures.
