    Good day guys

    I'm new to the hobby. Only finished my tank cycle about a month ago and looking around to stock my tank as I go along.

    Its a 200l tank with live sand in the main tank, biorock that has been seeded with coraline, 4 HO t5 lights. 2 are actinic lights, a wavemaker and a 60l sump. Did a diy protein skimmer in the sump that's working pretty good till the finances come in for a decent skimmer. So far I have some peppermint shrimp, a few blue legged hermits, a couple of snails and 2 blue damsels.

    Is there anyone here in the Jhb area that is selling small coral frags, like polyps or zoas or xenia?
    I am also thinking about starting a refugium in my sump filter. Can anyone Please help me out with some Caulerpa or Chaeto Algae? I only need a very small quantity.

    I would really appreciate any help guys!!! :please:

    Where in jnb are you located? Also to keep cheato you will need to have a light in your sump. And some movement to make it"roll"
