    Hi everyone , so I have been running freshwater for over 6 years ,
    Friend of mine from George is to blame that i will be attempting a marine .
    I will get a secondhand tank from Cape town next week , includes lights , filter , powerheads, heater . Would love running a sump but seems their is not enough space below . I learned a lot from the people around here and now i just cannot wait . Planning a DIY HOB refugium (filter) with a wall mounted light .

    Welcome! You might want to look into a skimmer. It'll greatly increase your chances of success over a filter.
