    Welcome to MASA. I am really not going to try and type your name. Must be the longest I've seen as a username.

    A very WARM WELCOME to MASA, Moegamat! (Sorry - your member-name is just too difficult for me to pronounce, what to say of type it)..... Great to have you on-board.

    Please post some pics of your tank and your equipment?

    Dumpbucket ats

    Water is either pumped or gravity fed into a vessel which tips over after its filled onto a ats screen which simulates the ocean lapping onto turf
