    Hi Everybody,

    I am a new to both this forum and Marines, Have done ALOT of online research and obiously came accross MASA as many search engine results bring up this forum, which is great btw.

    One thing is certain though, it seems to be a never ending story for the dedicated aquarist/ MA Addict.

    My tank has been running quite smoothly for about 2 months, with some major and minor hiccups of which I plan to tell you soon enough - photos included - patience.

    In the meantime, I need some help on the following.

    LOOKING for CHAETO.

    Please refer me to a LFS where i can buy some chaeto. Have been asking around without much luck.

    Am in PTA at the moment will be back in Constantia Kloof, Roodepoort tomorrow.

    Looking forward to being an active member of this forum.:)

    Cheers for Now...

    A VERY WARM WELCOME to MASA, Ghoempie! GREAT to have you on-board, man! AWESOME to have you join us!

    Please post ALL the statistics of your tank, many pictures, and also you water change and water testing regime?

    Also - CHAETOMORPHA is and should be GIVEN AWAY FREELY, not sold to you!

    Please be patient - there are MANY reefers in and around your area, that will WILLINGLY give you some chaeto, when they next time clean up their sumps ;)

    Ask Idol Marine, Bob (the reefbuilder), Lanzo from Dorry Pets, Moolis from Pet Stop.... I am QUITE sure that they will be willing to give you some for free!

    Please let us know if you come right, otherwise one of the members further away will be willing to post you some!

    Hey Ghompie, welcome firstly to MASA, by far the best marine forum you will ever join and secondly to teh addictive dark side of marine aquarium keeping.

    Great to hear that you are off on your feet, two months down the line and I am sure having a steep learning curve:) why not share some of ypour major and minor mishaps with us, its the best way you can learn.

    the forum is a wonderful resource of knowlegable guys and gals who will help all they can to get your system in its best shape:) So often new tanks are set up slightly incorrectly and so if you share with us a little we can help you alot :)

    PS i am sure someone will have some chaeto for you....do you have lights over your sump for it to grow under?

    Quite correct. It is an addiction with worse financial consequences than a nasty heroin habit
