    So here i go.....

    Got my tank +/- 500l with corner overflow and a +/- 300l sump.

    Busy getting all the equipment needed for the setup.

    Will post pictures of the progress of the setup.

    But any suggestions on what to do first or get first will be great help.

    Want to do this the right way.

    Thanks for a great forum guys....the advice here makes getting into the hobbie a lot less scary!!!

    :thumbup: Welcome to the hobby.

    Use good quality RO water when you mix your salt.

    Also do a freshwater test on the tank to make sure it or any of the pipework doesn't leak. Trying to fix a leak with a tank full of saltwater is not fun and expensive.
