    Hi All.

    After several years of keeping Malawis , I've recently been bitten by the "Reef Bug".I've taken over a tank from a friend that was very neglected. Its a 1m x 1m
    corner bow front that was not built to be a saltwater tank. Nevertheless I've given a shot. I set the tank up 2 months ago and have since added a chiller , an overflow box and a sump plus a few powerheads for movement. In addition to the rocks that came with the set up , I've added about 15kg of new live rock.

    Much of what i've learnt has been from MASA - so great thanks & respect to all you guys out there that share your knowledge and experience with us Newbies. i will post pics of my set up once I've figured out how to do that.

    Slims.
