    Hi my name is Ashwin and i am an reefaholic
    my wife is threatening to leave me if i continue with reefaholicism:slayer:

    seriously just want to introduce myself and looking forward to healthy relationship with all the members. i live in Durban South Africa and have a 600l FOWL which attained from a previous owner, unfortunately it came along with all his troubles as well, presently trying to convert to reef with endless hassels (will get there eventually)

    hey ashwin :)
    welcome to masa :)
    getting a second hand running system is often a difficult thing as you say it comes with sump loads of problems. why not share your system with us and lets see if we can make any sugestions to help you along the way? Its not often we see FOWLR on here and there are some great fish only systems so give us a pic and lets see what you have to work with :)

    welcome to masa and happy postings:)

    will upload some pics soon, trying to get the best shots.
    WHAT WILL CAUSE THE WATER NOT TO FOAM AS MUCH AS IT DID IN THE PAST (in the skimmer) Water quality???

    specific gravity: slightly above 1.024
    carbonate hardness : 10
    ph : +/_ 8.3

    should i test for anything else

    advised by dealer that only phosphate / nitrate / ph and carbonate hardness are most important

    checked out all tanks all really neat (embarresed to upload mine no way near these on here)
