    Hi there
    I am new to marine fish keeping and could use ALL the help and advice I can get! I currently run a 4 ft chiclid tank but reading all the comments I could see that marine keeping is a totally different ball game.
    I bought a 4 foot tank 2nd hand. The tank was in operation when I bought it but it had a small leak on the plumbing so I decided to decommission it and make make sure everything is 100% before I start her up.
    I have changed the cabinet and made the sump bigger, bigger sump is better right?
    Hardware wise it has a Reef Octopus skimmer, kalk wasser, auto top up, chiller, heater and 6 X T5 lights.
    I want to run a Reef and reef fish aquarium.
    That's me for now.
    Thanks

    Thank you so much for the warm welcome!! I have always had a fascination with marine life but an initial start up is expensive and wasn't in my reach. Luckily my dream came true and I am now on my way!!
    My long term goals are to save enough money to buy out Ushaka Marine World and stay in it!lol:m13:
