    Hi,

    Looking at starting my first Marine Aquarium early next year. So busy looking at different tanks and what I want to have in my tank at the moment. I have kept tropical fresh water fish from an early age (got started on the hobby with dad).

    My current apartment is not the biggest place so the size of the tank is going to have to be limited. So at the moment I am looking at getting the The Aquaria AMW102 Nano. Would this be a wise choice?

    I'm also more interested in having invertebrates and coral. So at this point just looking to include 2 clown fish, a cleaner shrimp, anemone, hermit crab, fan worm.

    Any advice would be very welcome :)

    I've been hearing good things about the Aquaria Tanks...the small 37L...The big one is still not available, to the best of my knowledge...I do stand corrected...Lighting, Filtration etc all sounds excellent on the New 102L so IMHO it will be a excellent Tank...here is the Link...

    The Aquaria AMW102 Nano - Page 2 - Marine Aquariums of South Africa

    You'r Inmates for you'r Tank sounds fine...EXCEPT the ANEMONE...please do some homework first...they should not be introduced to the System till it's at least 9months..Please read on them as their requirements differ from Species to Species...

    Thanks for the advice and link :) I will skip the anemone then.

    The list is basically things I want to see in my tank. Going to read up on all of their needs before making any purchases.

    About time someone takes over. Getting tired of repeating the same stuff. Sounding like a scratched 7 single. And for the youngsters that do not know what a 7 single is, ask Belinda, she'll Google it for you...lol
