    Hi Fellow Victims

    I have to admit the bug has bitten.

    I have taken ownership of a friends tank, Juwel 180lt

    Got my tank running for a week and im glued to the tank more than the TV:thumbup:

    Manged to get hooked up from Wazeers (east rand - boksburg fleamarket)


    my set up is as follows

    180lt tank
    C1000 Filter Canister
    sr300 Pro skimmer
    internal filter with Juwel tank aswell
    standard lights from the Tank stand 1 white 1 blue
    small vib pump
    + 7 supplements ,Prime and stability

    8kg of LR
    with some sandstone picked up from KZN beaches


    had my water tested and all proved ok (so pretty chuffed after my 1st week)

    Welcome to MASA. Please read the link in my signature on starting a marine tank before stocking your tank, so that you can get an idea of the nitrogen cycle, filtration, etc - great info there.

    Thanks for the welcome

    I intend to takes thing slowly - no rush from me

    and intend to soak up as much info as possible prior to introducing any life to my tank apart from LR.

    Thanks for all the help and guidance guys
