Hi Guys,

I am a newbie to aquariums and stuff, and have been reading a lot on these forums.

I am keen to try my hand at a marine setup.

Will post a question in the beginners discussions section.

A very WARM WELCOME to MASA Dogstar! Thanks for joining MASA! I am very glad to have you on-board!

Yes please - ask as many questions as you need to, to ensure that you end up being a very successful reefer!

Perhaps you could answer some questions?
1) do you have a tank already? if not, what size tank are you looking at getting?
2) what were you planning on keeping?
3) did you read up on the following, if not - please do so:
= filtration: ie. DSB, live rock, skimmer, phosphate reactor, sump, etc...
= water chemistry: nutrients, ammonia, nitrites, nitrates, bacteria (aerobic and an-aerobic), phosphates
= nuisance macro algae
= live stock compatibility - what fish to keep with what fish, what corals to keep with what fish, and what corals to keep with what corals
= lighting requirements of: fish, corals, anemone's
= water flow requirements of: fish, corals, anemone's
ETC... (by no means concisive - but a good starting point)....

Good luck on your journey! IT is yours and hope you get to make a success of it!
