    welcometomasa. Shop around, itll be better for you in the long run and ask loads of questions. not familiar with the bloemfontein area but we have a few reefers out there and they'll be along soon:) check out our for sale pages as well, you could pick up a few bargains:)

    Welcome to the forum dude:)

    you say you started a system and want info on how to get started, so a little confused here:)

    what sort of tank do you have, what sort of equipment etc, or are you starting up and hunting bargains?

    Hi Rennanchen and welcome to the best hobby in the world! There are a few reefers from Bloem and kimberley on Masa. One being Hennie(Reefmaniac), I don't think he will mind me mentioning him, which is one of the most knowledgable people in the country if not the world with a few articles of his being on international sites! Why not join us at the Central region club meeting in Bloem on the last weekend of this month? This, is where you will be getting loads of usefull info on reefing in your region and will save you big time in the long run!:thumbup:

    Renannchen - I would definitely investigate one of the following skimmers:
    Either ReefTek TS1 (rated 350 litres) or TS2 (rater 750 litres). Alternatively, the ReefOctopus range (DNW-110)....

    Good luck!
