    HI All

    After much deliberation about 4 months ago I took the plunge and purchased a RSM 130D, and happy days!!! I don't think I would have done this without reading all the posts in the last 2 years on masa, so great job everyone.:thumbup:

    Yep, you're right, will take some pics and post in next few days - I also realised from my join date that it actually took me 4 years!!!!.

    Yep, research, and I had a 1.8m Jebo Cichlid tank that kept me active, with a small approx 30 litre nano marine tank "attempt", that went quite well, but then started with renovations to house, etc, etc so was a bit side tracked. Now I'm in there's no turning back!!!

    By the way, I've posted a new thread under general looking for assistance on selecting a RO filter unit - is this the correct place?

    So here are some pics of my RSM 130 D - not in ideal state - I did some landscaping the weekend, which looked okay, but resulted in my anemone being starved of light and flow - I tried to move but no success, so last night I hacked away and re-arranged the rock he was fixed to to improve the situation .

    Is this the right way to post pics?
