    Hi Folks, just a quick intro msg. I have returned to SA after a few years abroad and now that I am a little more settled I want to get a tank up and running again after a few years absence from the hobby. This looks like a great place to get inspiration and nice to see the marine keeping in SA has grown strong.

    Cheers,
    Kelvin

    Hi Kelvin, welcome to MASA. You can read the link below on how to start a marine tank - maybe it will be a good refresher for you ;)
    What are you planning? Any ideas on what size tank you want?

    I am prob gonna go with the classic 4' reef tank, enjoy leather corals and stoney polyps with only a couple of fish for activity. I am a refugium fan and quite keen to set up a "miracle mud" type lower tank, something I started to set up a while back but never got up and running becuase of too much moving with my job.
    Thanks for the friendly welcome, wow you guys are on the ball :thumbup:

    Ya well, the Garden Route is a little out of the way so far as this hobby is concerned. I havn't investigated supliers yet and was pleased to see the forum has some pretty solid sponsors. Was one of the first things I look at when I joined. Will prob ship 90% of hardware and "software" in.
