    Greetings All

    My name is Riaz I am new to this site, I am in the process of starting a Marine Tank, I have been keping tropical fish for the past 20years and have now decided to try a Marine setup. I own a Petshop in my area we specialize in tropical and cold water fish but recently I have had quite a few customers asking about Marine tanks.
    :thumbup:
    I have decided to go with a Aqua H20 Amazon tank 1,2m with the sump set up. Will let you guys know how it is going.

    Thanks

    A very WARM WELCOME to MASA Riaz!

    Please have a read through our other "New Members" setups in the "New Members" forum.

    There's a LOT of questions answered there already.

    Please let us know what you are planning to keep?
    Things to think about and to ask questions about:
    - lighting
    - water flow
    - filtration (ie. skimmer, DSB, reactors, chemical/biological filtration, etc)
    - live rock
    - substrate
    - NSW/Synthetic sea salt
    - denitrification cycle (tank cycling)
    - life stock compatibility
    - starter/advanced life stock
    etc....
