    Hi Guys
    We are new to this awesome hobby. We got a Boyu TL-550. It is now full of sea water and been running for 12 hours. Water starting to look a bit clearer now. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

    We really look forward to being in this group.
    Regards
    Racerchic

    Howsit and Welcome to MASA.

    Tell us a little more about what you would like to keep etc.

    How much Live Rock have you got in the system?
    What pumps are you using?
    What skimmer are you using in the tank?
    Have you taken the filter floss out?
    What substrate are you using?

    My suggestions to what alot of people change in these tanks is the following.

    Remove filterfloss - Traps Detritus and other things - Replace it with small pieces of live rock
    Make sure you have a decent skimmer. Boyu WG-308 or 310. They work wonders.

    Okay thats about it :) Hope this helps.

    Time for some Pics!!!

    Hello and Welcome.


    Please read a lot and learn. It is only for your own advantage and the life of your inmates.

    Please tell the family NOT to give you ANY lifestock as presents this Christmas. Does not matter how nice they look. They will be dead by New Year.

    Hardware, no problem and accept the gifts. :thumbup:
