    Good morning all,

    We deceide to take the plunge into the marine world after an friend didnt want his setuo anymore and offerd it to us for free.

    Its a very basic setup, abuot 1000 litres (still have to calculate this accurately) with some live rock and a few fish. The only species I have been able to identify accuratekyt so far is the three Sergeant Majors.

    I do have a lot of questions as my experience is mainly in Malawi setups, so please bear with my ignorance/stupid questions as I go along.

    A lot of patience might be required

    Nic

    Welcome to the amazing world of Marine @nicoos. The key to success is patience. Have fun, and Im sure even the most experienced reefers still ask questions. There is no such thing as stupid question.

    Cheri

    Ons het jou boodskap gekry maar kan nog nie pm stuur nie.

    Ons het baie vra, maar sal daarby uitkom. Ons is in jhb op die oomlik opsoek na vis en goed.

    Wat dink jy is n redelike prys vir clown fish?

    Ek sal later die week fotos van my tenk oplaai.

    Some updated pics.

    My tank developed a small leak, so I have to drain it in the next few days. I will use this time to re-landscape as well...
