    :welcometomasa1:mayoginn.

    Yes we love pic's, so you will need to upload asap.;)

    I make use of heater, but you will need to keep an eye on your tank. As it is only 50l it can be a bit unstable and will drop temp quite quickly.

    hello again Mayoginn :)

    50l isnt the biggest of tanks, but its only 10l smaller than mine :) they are challenging but fun, you just have to do religious water changes, I do 10% weekly. With small vollume tanks things change very fast, so you have to be on the ball :)

    how about some pics, I'd love to see what you have done with the aquascaping :)

    Hi mayo, please dont use sms speak as some of the older readers cant understand it. Fleas sound like pods which are good, worm sounds like a tube worm or a fan worm, flowers maybe zoanthids, not to good with filters, as i stay far away from them

    Sorry about the short form words, i use operamini browser so thumbs start to pain after some time and i get lazy. Thanks for the welcom rid. To think i was going to keep a fresh water fish, and just out of it i decided to go salt, if i only spent more attention during physical science. I find this hobby realy interesting. Can one of the moderators post my pics, ill mail them if an address is given to me please. How do i know if its safe to put a shrimp in? Had tank for more than 2.5 months almost 3. This might be stupid but i noticed each block above a name has a creature like plakton and bristle worm, what does that mean.

    Hi Mayoginn welcome to MASA, the block is just a fun ranking based on post count, although some of them are more serious ie the Guru's, Mods etc
