    Hi Guys and Gals,

    Just wanted to introduce myself. I've been spending quite a bit of time on the forums in the past couple of weeks and I must congratulate you all in making a very knowledgable and friendly site.

    Then as to tanking, I use to a keep fresh water system for a couple of years and thus know a little about keeping fish. I then went onto converting to a marine tank and ran it for about 8 months. I'm surpised it ran that long, as I received misguided information from a person I trusted and the LFS. Unfortunately this site was not active when I kept fish.

    Obviously this ended in a blunder and a lot of ill feelings, but as anyone here can tell you, once the bug has bit, it's hard to let go and looking at the forums awoke all too familiar feelings.

    In a month's time my family and I will be moving house, a bigger one than currently, so there will be space for a tank again.

    So, this is me saying "Hi there" and I'll probably be posting very soon as to what I have in mind for a setup.

    A VERY WARM WELCOME to MASA, JohnDoe! Great to have you on-board! Fantastic that you found us at least, this time - BEFORE YOU STARTED!

    Please have a look through MASA. Read as many threads as you possibly can.... Ask many questions. I am QUITE sure that you would be surprised with the info you can learn here.

    Good luck with your new journey. Keep up updated, please with what you decided. Also - perhaps try and "Design" your new tank, before you actually lay out a cent.

    Download "Google SketchUp". Have a play with it. It can be extremely handy in designing tanks....
