    Thank you for a great local forum. It is amazing to see so many people who are this active on a South African forum.

    I used to be a fairly professional fish keeper many years ago and have recently reentered the hobby. I am running a 3ft aquarium with a Cascade 1000 external canister filter and one t5 for light. A second T5 or a custom built LED setup from Improved Living PE will follow soon.

    My goal is to have a great looking aquarium with low fish stock levels and a few easy to keep LPS corals and two or three beautiful BTAs.

    Living in PE makes obtaining good water simple so I do a 50% water change every week or two.

    I would love to find a few local enthusiasts to network with and if there is anybody in PE willing to sell a colourful BTA I would love to hear from you.

    Welcome to MASA!
    There are a few members on the forum who live in PE who might be able to help with a BTA.

    Thank you. I will spend some time looking up fellow PE people to see what I can find. My local shop advised me that importing a Rose BTA is not viable. The Rose BTA is currently top of my list. Here's hoping!

    You could ask one of our sponsors, a lot of them will ship to you.

    Also from PE but out of the hobby for a while now. Must admit, tempted to start again.
