    Hi guys and girls!

    I finally joined you guys after seeing how much information there is on this site, especially on the TL-550 as this is what I have.

    But first let me tell you guys a bit more about myself. I have been living in the WC my hole life. So a few years ago I started fish keeping, and then the bug bit me. So i started getting bigger tanks, etc, etc. so then i decided to go the planted way of keeping FW. And that is what i've been doing this last few years, only planted tanks. So once i joined forums and started using the net I discovered marine tanks, also i'm a casual at a petshop so there I also got exposure to marines.

    So now finally I'm going to start the marine tank, which like I said will be a Boyu TL-550. And soon i will start building everything that is needed to get the tank going. still need to get the stand built aswell as do my LED conversion.

    Well thats me in a nutshell,
    Cheers and a Happy New Year!

    Welcome. The TL-550's are quite popular so good choice there. :)

    How about showing us some pics of your planted tanks in the meantime?

    welcome mate, great to have you join:) planted tanks can be awesum but youll find marines as much a challenge and even more rewarding. looking forward to seeing your tank and hearing a little more about your plans :)

    oooooh SOOOOO much potential....first take out the plants, drain the bath water, change the substrate to aragonite, get some better lights, put in RO and some salt and convert to marine....so much better :)
