    Hello all,

    As you can all see, another newbie has joined :biggrin:

    I was referred here by my brother-in-law (shiks) who will be helping me set up a marine tank in about 2 months time (thanks dude!!!). The tank is a Boyu TL550 and currently not in the same province as I, hence me being tankless, lol!

    Currently reading up in the last two days as much as I can so that my first tank will not be a complete disaster! It is an information overload but I'm getting to grips with the accronyms, tank cycles and all that good stuff ;)

    And I know from some past reading on this forum that everyone here loves pictures so here is one of my bike (yes I know this is not a bike forum but hopefully it will hold it's own until I get my tank up and running):

    Welcome to the Forum, if you sell your bike and the car next to your bike, you might start off with a nice 3 foot tank with all the bells and whistles, and a small sump :p

    You know, I actually understood most of what you said :p Thanks dude!
    Need to google "CARRIBSEA fine live arogonite" though, lol!

    @xtreme; sean_koekemoer and viper357: Thanks for the warm welcome :)
    lol sean, don't think that the thought didn't cross my mind, plans of selling first borns, appendages and organs also briefly entertained the thought of getting a bigger tank!

    :lol: Just learn from the start to throw any receipts away, teach yourself that from the start, then you'll never have to explain slips with high prices printed on them, in the pocket/washing machine etc

    *gigglesnort* Distruction of incriminating evidence!
    Thanks, I will definitely keep that in mind especially when I tell the hubby that he can't buy something! :biggrin:

    Thanks, Jaak!

    Welcome to MASA, glad you joined. If Shiks is funny with you, just let me know, I'll sort him out :) - he's scared of me :p
    I got something else for you to read, check out the link in my signature - some good info on how to start a marine tank ;)
