    A VERY WARM WELCOME to MASA, ReefMaster_SA! Great to have you on-board! Awesome that Junz have introduced you to MASA!

    Geez - so sorry what has happened to Junz.... I hope that you can at least learn from him.

    Please tell us more on the tank sizes, filtration system/s, lighting/water flow, etc. that you have planned?

    Please post us some pics of what you have already?

    hey reefmaster, welcome to the best marine forum on the net :)

    great to hear that you are starting out, even better to hear that you are taking the plunge by building your own tank.

    lots of guys on here have buildt their own and you'll get all the support you need. Just ask the questions as you think of them and if ytou are not certain of something, ask it again. Undertsanding all there is to building a tank is vital if you want to have a viable well made system, so make sure that you know whats going on.

    plan your sump and stand carefully, it will save you endless troubles later on

    happy posting and have fun on MASA :)

    cool fella, almost there with most of the basics:) Ive only ever heard good things about the ts1, have you looked online for second hand options, you can often get really good buys that way.

    have a good look through our classifieds or on SARK, but failing that definatley contact the sponsors they are far better than a LFS and will give you propper service:)
