    Hi Folks,

    I joined this group a month ago, but have not, up to now, had time to introduce myself. I am a South African expat living in Abu Dhabi in the UAE. I have kept tropical freshwater for over twenty years, but finally made the switch to marine. It sure is a different world, but I am loving it.

    I have a Juwel Rio 180 with internal filter and skimmer. I started the tank about two months ago and have taken it very slowly, as advised by my research. I presently have about 14kg of live rock, which is thriving so far. Lots of small annenomes and some corral that I have no idea about. I also have a Black Dominoe, a blue Damsel and last week I added two Green Chromis. That will be all for now, as I am going on holiday to Cape Town for three weeks. When I get back, I will be looking for advice on what else to put in.

    Chris

    Welcome! Word of advice, you cannot simply introduce yourself and tell us you have a tank running and not post pics of it... :tt2:
