    Hi everyone

    I am from Gauteng (East Rand) and have been a marine enthusiast for a very long time. Have had several tanks and then just buy a bigger one incorporate the old stuff and 'Viola'.

    Is there somewhere a glossary of all these abbreviations you guys are using so that I am on the same page - it is confusing - some I have figured out for myself but others I am stoked.

    Welcome to Masa Animalia. If you currently have a setup please share some pictures with us and tell us more about the tank, lights, sump(if any), filtration, water parameters etc.

    Welcome animalia, so good to have new memebers:)

    glad to hear you are studying hard, i'm afriad there are lots of IT folk in reefing and they shorten everything into acronyms, they even swear at me and i agree simply cause I dont know what ubf means. (ask puppy he uses it all the time!)

    sounds like u have a good handle of keeping things which swim wet, now lets see what we can do to help you keeping salty things alive:)

    oh and that teasing info on a 1000l system def needs to be expanded on :)
