    Right then, it seems I'll have to describe my tank being a new member and all so I'll give it my best shot



    It is a 580 litre and my first marine tank.
    I've got many fish from gobies to clowns to tangs to a foxface to a box fish.
    My corals are also numerous including hard and soft corals like frog spawn, plate and star polyps.
    It has a glass sump with one piece of live rock, a skimmer and filter pads on top of this white filter cylindrical things and bio balls.
    Hoping to get either a Np pellet reactor or orca marine cubes depending.


    I may seem young but I thought the best time to start is young and I do love marine fish keeping as you learn something new everyday :)


    I look forward to being apart of MASA

    Hi and welcome to MASA hope you enjoy your stay here with us. in regarding to the 1 piece of LR, is this in your sump? if so it would be better to add more unless you have a DSB underneath the LR. also try not to use bioballs as they do tend to cause nitrate spikes in the system. and of course some PICS please:thumbup:
