    hello armand, welcome to masa great to have you join:)

    what sort of setup do you have or what sort of tank do you have in mind? If you can give us some dimensions and what sort of tank mates you want to look after we can give you all the help you need :) there are siome great threads in the new memebers sections and they will help you alot through the early questions so be sure to have a look through them.

    do you have any specific questions with regards to sump side and what needs to happen there, or is it the whole sump deseign you are not sure of?

    welcome and happy postings :)

    Hi Armand, welcome to MASA. If you wanna learn, read the link in my signature for awesome info on setting up a marine tank ;)
    Enjoy the hobby and remember, patience is important and bad things happen quickly :(
    Ask here before you buy as some petshops will sell you outdated and wrong stuff just to make a few bucks. Check out our sponsors in the well...um... sponsors forum :)

    Welcome to MASA, follow the guys with higher post counts - they are the boys who have been around long enough to have made almost every mistake imaginable and can advise you how to and how not to do it before you spend a lot of money on junk...There is a lot of info to gather prior to even looking at adding water to your glass box, even I have hit my head hard because I DIDN"T LISTEN...

    Don't be foolish, take the time as guided by the people who know their stuff and don't be fooled into thinking you are going to have a brillian't tank setup in no time at all...

    Time is your best friends, God created the heaven and land in 7 days, it doesn't tell you how long it took him to do the ocean because that went on for many years;)

    Ye. Often LFS just wants to make money by selling you chemicals etc... its best to research the product on the net 1st and ask the MASA guys :razz:

    A VERY WARM WELCOME to MASA, Armand! Great to have you on-board!

    Please have a look through the "Member's Setups" threads, and try and identify a goal tank that you would like to achieve.

    We here on MASA will try and assist you, and guide you, that you can indeed (hopefully) make the correct decisions, and be successful in your journey.

    Please don't be afraid to ask any questions. And also - PLEASE come here and ask BEFORE you spend a cent at a LFS....

    Good luck mate.
