    Hi everyone just want to say hi:thumbup: been a member for a while but never introduce myself will be sending some pics of my setup soon:)busy with a slow 200L build..I have 100L currently running for 6 months now with 2 yellow tail damsels a large maroon clown..Blue leg hermit dancing shrimp sailfin blennie and 2 medium turbo snail's some live rock and fine live sand,everything is going well for me so far and all my fish looks happy as my damsels laid eggs a few time's,no loss so far only a goby that died due to stress had a devil in my tank. ..jip and those little guys can be active!...I've been in the tropical most of my life and was a little sceptical about marine,so I brought a low budget running setup from a guy that had a lot of knowledge about marine cemetery, he gave my confidence and with lost of browning I now have a better understanding about this hobby.

    Thanks guys:m01:jip speed kills still have a lot to learn!eventually it becomes instinctive. .you have to respect these animal's they didn't ask to live in captivity so the best you can do is making sure you do the right thing in giving them a good life and enjoy the beauty of God's creation.

    It's coming on

    In a few months my 200l will be reddy busy curing my dead live rock and saving up for a nice diy cabinet and aragonite.

    If aragonite is too expensive then why not go for playsand, much cheaper alternative.

    Nice tank you got there.
