    hi guys!
    i'm a friend of geoffreys, stay in the same commune and
    help out with his tank whenever i can.
    i must say this business of tanks has really gripped me!

    at the moment i'm just looking to start off with a nice nano tank.
    about 150l??
    alas, as i am a student money is alway tight.
    so a nice second hand tank will do me fine!

    looking forward to getting started!

    Welcome Furbz, your tank is going to be the least expensive item what do you intend keeping etc?

    for the moment. just a simple tank. live rock, a few fish, shrimp etc.
    i'm fully aware of the expenses, bin watching geoff start up his tank. and it
    looks like an amazing hobby that i'd like to get into!

    well, i have much of the basic stuff for starting.
    geoff has a hanging skimmer good for i think 250l
    so thats plenty for what i'm looking for. bin looking around the forums for a
    nice 150l tank.

    actually tossing between a big tank compared to a smaller one?
    so either a +-150l or 250l tank.

    we have a sump sitting here, so i'm sorted with that to.
    sand, salt, LR i will sort out once i've found a tank...

    Welcome Bart.

    I reckon contact Matt, I heard there is an upgrade happening and he has one of those Nano.

    Remember questions, question, best way to learn this intensely addictive hobby
