    Hi all, I have decided to convert from fresh water to marine. I will be converting my 2,150 x 600 x 600 with internal bio filter from the middle of next month. I want to keep the internal bio as a pre filter and then have a 1,2m sump made up.

    I think i will start with a FO tank, but want to set up for a reef tank from the begining :)

    any comments and views welcome.

    A VERY WARM WELCOME to MASA, Savage! Great to have you on-board!

    Please read as much as you can about keeping marines. And ask as many questions as you can, to ensure that you become the absolute best reefkeeper/marine aquarist you can be!

    Please read the URL thread in my signature about starting a marine aquarium....

    Good luck mate! And enjoy this journey!
