    I started in the marine hobby in 2008 , with Fish only tanks and in Jan of 2013 started introducing corals .Never heard of MASA by then and what a struggle. After almost giving up, I found MASA, Moved to my own place and started with the new tank in Dec'13, build by the guys from Idol Marine.

    Tank : 1.2x0.6x0.45
    This is where it all began :

    Fish:
    Yellow Tang
    Regal Tang
    Kole Tang
    Flame Angel
    Manderin
    Yellow Wrasse
    Anthia

    When I started filling the tank with corals , I went on a zoas craze and the whole tank was filled with zoas from one coner to the other. Which after a few months I started selling and swopping for various other corals. So the craze went on from one coral to the other and still going on. LOL
    Current craze , Euphyllias.

    10 Months later and this is how the tank looks after plenty of ups and downs.
