    Hi.

    My name is Hein and i live in East Londen. I have recently decided that it is time for a new hobby and decided on a Marine tank. I surely hope it is worth the effort and money.
    I look forward in sharing my experiances with you all.

    Have a super weekend.:thumbup:

    Hi Hein welcome to Masa. This is one of the few hobbies you are going to enjoy if not the best there is as it has plenty of rewards. Just remember to take things slow and dont rush anything as in this hobby only bad things happen quickly. Remember to ask as many questions as possable and there is no such thing as a stupid question here on the forum, there are many people on here that will always be willing to help. So please go ahead and tell us abit about the system you have or would like to keep, so that we can see if we can start off by helping you get started in the right dirrection. Please also remember to never buy on impulse and take the advice given by most LFS's(local fish shop's) with a pinch of salt and ask the guys here on the forum before you go and buy it or do some resurch on the net first. Once again welcome to the dark side and know you are going to enjoy this journey;)

    Welcome to MASA Hein, hope you enjoy your stay with us and learn a lot about this wonderful hobby.
    Please read the links in my signature for some great beginner info on how to start/setup your first marine tank ;)
    Be patient and take it slow - look through the classifieds for some bargains.

    Some (not all) petstores might sell you wrong or outdated stuff, so ask here first OK?

    Keep us updated :wave2:
