    Hello,

    My name is Paul. I have never had a tank before. I moved into a new house two years ago. At the entrance and stairs there is a big triangle that I think would make a graet place for a marine tank. Problem is I don't know where to start or who to ask for help. Obviosly I need the tank first but who makes custom tanks in the Pretoria region.

    I would appreciate some help or advise from anyone.

    Thank you in advance

    Paul

    Hello Dikbek / Paul
    And welcome.

    There are a few tank builders that is also sponsors to this forum. Try Pet Stop - Pretoria, Idol Marine - Midrand and can even try Dorry Pets - also Pretoria.

    But first read a lot, get all the facts right. You need to know the basics of what you want. Sump, type of lights, tank size, etc.

    Welcome to this wonderful hobby

    We have no financial gain to help you and give advice, unlike some petshops - just be carefull, they might sell you something you don't need. First ask us and talk to our sponsors, they know the game and most give great advice.

    Please read the link in my signature for excellent advice. Keep us updated :wave2:

    A very WARM WELCOME to MASA, Paul! Great to have you on-board! Please read as much as you can on keeping marines. Also - have a look through our other member's tank-threads.

    Try and identify a tank that you would like to emulate. And then we will assist you in obtaining your goal.

    Good luck with your journey into keeping marines! It's a fantastic hobby. And very addictive!

    Please just beware that the learning curve is extremely steep, and that you require a HUGE amount of PATIENCE!

    Enjoy!
