    Hi guys

    Iv only recently joined Masa, but I have already picked up a few things.
    I'm FINALLY in the process of setting up my first marine tank.

    Starting out with just a standard 3ft with a 2ft sump,
    I will be using a reef octopus reactor with bio pellets, with some live rock in the sump and just a Jebo skimmer for now. .
    Dual odysea T5 lighting (might be getting the quad instead but since its a shallow tank it should be fine for now and I don't plan to keep the 'harder' corals anyway.)
    Aragonite as the substrate to help keep the calcium where it should be:).

    I'll start uploading pics up as soon as I get the tank:thumbup:

    Welcome :) If you ever decide to keep SPS later on, then the lighting can always be adjusted! Always best to take it slow though

    Thanks guys. Do you think just a dual T5 lighting unit will be okay for now to keep most corals excluding SPS?
