    Hi, i have been keeping fish for the last 40 years,freshwater, and bought two nano marine tanks about a year ago from people who lost interest.

    As with most things in life, I realised a long time ago that it is easier to learn from other people with experience so thats why i joined MASA.

    After a year of learning with the two small 90 liters nanos i would like to consolidate both into a large tank system, preferably a large tank of 600-1000 liters.

    I custom build my current 1000 l freshwater aquarium but would like to buy a complete out the box system with all sumps etc build into one unit.

    I will look into the various threads and forums here, but if anybody can advise me, it will be much appreciate-Louis

    Hello and welcome @Louisvdm
    Look around, we got sponsors who really can build nice systems. But remember a dedicated for you system build takes time, and that is money. So yeah, a system can become expensive quickly. Where a standard build is a lot cheaper.

    Anyway, Idol Marine do some very nice builds.
    Dorry Pets as well, although in Centurion, they did build a system the other day in Potchefstroom. And they do have a "standard" 1.2m system.

    enjoy the upgrade

    Hi Louis, welcome to MASA.

    Since you have some experience with your two 90L nano's, I would assume the only questions you should really be answering about upgrading, is:
    What space do I have available?
    What do I want to keep in my 1000L system?
    Am I prepared to take on the requirements of feeding / lighting depending on stocking?

    All the best! Read up, and ask Q's as you go...:)
