    Welcome to MASA Johan!

    What size tank? What equipment have you gotten so far? What do you plan to keep?

    Length: 1.2m H 80cm B 60cm
    The most important to me would be "Reef" corals, and some Percula clowns.
    No equipment so far!!!

    Welcome to the forum.

    Have you got the tank already? Do you have a sump?

    Hi Johan, welcome to MASA. I'm also in Witbank, so help is not too far away :)
    For starters, read the link in my signature for great info on how to start your first marine tank. Feel free to ask and please do before buying anything from a petshop, talk to me, I'll point you to the right people - the people I'm dealing with ;)
    Advice on the tank size. Rather make it wider and lower cause you'll need thicker glass and stronger lights for a tank 800mm deep, not even to talk about the difficulty reaching the bottom when doing something.
    I've got a 1200L x 700H x 600W, I wish I could go 800 wide, but my stand was from my previous setup and I used it again.

    OK, enough for now - first read the link then you'll know what most guys are talking about ;)

    Sure thing, just give me time to fetch my new tank, hopefully this weekend, then we can make a plan and I'll show you my setup.
    I might even have some secondhand stuff that you can buy, like a sump :p

    Good advice from Tobes, if space allows, go as wide as possible!
