    Welcome!

    Don't be tempted to get a too large tank to start off with.

    work on around a 300 litre tank, it'll be forgiving enough during your learning process.

    Sorry dont mean to hijack this tread, but also looking for the following.Tank must be 1200(L) x 45(W) x 50(H) already drilled for marine. And also looking for a dsb sized 36(W) x 53(L), and a sump the same size...want to fit it into a 4ft cubboard i currently have. Any sponsors welcome to quote as well. Obviously i will need all plumbing too

    @Zandy, try get a tank with at least a 60(w) you'll have a lot more depth to play with corals and your base rock design.

    Cant go wider @Wes cause the cabinet can support only up to 45(w) or else i will have half the tank hanging over
