    Hi to all fellow aquarists. We moved to PMB 8 months ago, was hard at first - didn't know anyone who has the same passion as me until I met Andrew from Ecoaquatics and the people of Azure aquatics. My 6 foot tank cracked, so I bought a 50gal tank to set up a nano reef. I'm still new in the hobby - chasing pods for the last 18 months. I got a reeftek TS2 skimmer, kalkwasser, refugium and a metal halide for my nano. Flow is taken care of by two 3200l seio pumps. Looking to ad another refugium to increase water volume just that bit more. A 300-500l chiller takes care of the high temperatures. Cheers for now!

    I don't know how to post my pics, we moved recently and I don't have internet on my pc yet - using my phone as a modem for the moment. Got some great pics on my phone though!

    Welcome Tobes, I really hope that you will find this forum very helpful and very educational, BUT beware once you get you internet connection you WILL be losing sleep, because you will spend a lot of time here.

    Am I right or wrong you forum "fanatics" out there.

    Enjoy
