    Hello Everyone,
    I am a new member here and would just like to briefly introduce myself.
    I live in Cape Town. I have a tank with a couple of baby bala sharks, baby Oscars & Plecos.
    Looking forward to be part of the MASA community!

    Hi Heinrich,

    Welcome to Masa!

    Interesting fish you've got there. Why not post some pic's? These are freshwater species though, right?

    Do you intend on starting a marine tank as well?

    Happy reefing!

    Cheers,
    Carla

    Hi Carla,

    Thank you for the warm welcome.

    I will post some pics soon, and yes these are fresh water fish.

    Yes, I do intend to start a marine tank in the near future, the thinking was to start off with a fresh water tank….to get into the owning a “home aquarium”.

    Hi,

    If you plan to start a marine tank, I can only suggest you start reading. Loads of info on this site, and when you cannot find the answers in the threads, feel free to ask!

    Plenty of knowledgeable ppl floating around here, willing to share their experiences.

    Hope to find you hooked on marines in the very near future!

    Cheers!
