    hi everyone

    i just started a new marine tank,its running now for 3 weeks can't wait.
    my husband on the other hand ask me every day if he can move something from the small tank to the bigger one, he is the one who will ask all the questions.

    how old must the tank really be before you can put anything in it?

    Welcome! How about some pics of the tank and a description of the hardware and filtration?

    The tank should be around at least 4weeks old but this can vary as it depends on when the tank has cycled. Ammonia and nitrites should be at 0 and nitrates should be >15, at 0 ideally..

    Welcome to MASA.

    Give it a month time to cycle then you can start adding.

    Bud not to many fish or coral at a time.
    Your system needs to be able to handle the load before you add more.

    But first tell us more about your system and give us some pics.
    Pleeeeeeaaaazzzzzzzz:thumbup:

    hi everyone

    thanks for the welcome

    Been busy,its not me its my husband that can't wait to load the tank with everything,
    he thinks is nice.

    I'm trying my best to stop him, give me time i will tell you what if got and how long its been running :)

    It's not that long now but i will take foto's of everything and post it, there is at the moment 14kg live rock in the tank.

    A big problem in my smaller (much smaller tank) think my fish has white spot so i am trying to sort that out. All the stuff that people tell you to do is so confusing that i really don't want take the advice.:)

    thank you
