    Hi Everyone*

    I am new to the marine aquariums, so any help and advise will be appreciated.

    I've had fresh water tanks since i was 5 years old but since i started diving the fresh water tanks became "boring" to the Marine. I dont have anything agents fresh water tanks but there is so much more color to the marine tanks.

    I am really excited to try the marine tank, and again any advise and help will be appreciated.

    First off i will need a tank and pumps ect. that fit my budget - Any suggestions where i can find a 95 liter tank?

    And then what fish do you suggest i start with? I will need a Goby and shirmp?

    Any suggestions where to start looking for a tank please and thank you!

    I am located in Centurion but if there is equipment in Johannesburg or Pretoria i will drive there.

    For around 95 liters it might be worth your while to look for a second hand red sea max 130, as they are nice all in one systems, and second hand not too expensive.

    I think I saw red sea max 130 on OLX for sale, have a look there.

    Welcome @Merushka. If I can give you advice, read and learn before you just start buying fish and inverts. What you would need to start with is know about and understand the tank cycle when starting up, water parameters (if you don't know that already). You are going to need test kits to check parameters.
    Read up on the fish and inverts you want to get, see what they need in terms of parameters, feeding, tank sizes etc before you buy them, make sure you can provide for them.

    Ask a lot of questions, this is a never ending learning school.

    Have fun and enjoy:1:

    Either a red sea 130 or a boyu tl 450 or 550 would be good start up options to get your sea legs.

    I would suggest besides reading you also talk to reefers, meet some in your area cos you can learn alot that way.
