    I have always been interested in the sea and marine life. I was involved in sailing and scuba diving, but being a landlocked Gautenger, could only read, watch and occasionally get the oppertunity to participate.
    Now, at 62 I have decided to bring the sea to me in starting my 'marine aquarium', not a sea fish tank!
    I live in Pretoria East and bought the hardsware during May 2012.
    I unfortunately bought the 'wrong' books, which were technical and above my understanding.
    To make it easier, I went to DorryPets in Centurion and after seeing their setup, decided to throw my lot in with them.
    Very professional bunch of young guys who have guided me all the way and prevented me from paying 'school fees' by doing stupid things.
    I am just at the stage where I need to do water changes and need to setup the hardware for this. Looking for water drums to hold the RO and salt water.
    My setup is young and I have lots to learn, so I am pleased to become part of your community.
