    lol where to start where to start?

    A few years ago I kept 2 fish tanks, both tropical freshwater tanks. Then I moved out and had to get rid of everything. Can any one say eedjit? Yeah, that's how I feel.

    So now my boyfriend and I have decide we're going to start fish keeping again. We'll start off with Tropical Freshwater tanks again, but ultimately we'd love to have a marine tank. Thing is, I'm so scared I kill the fish on their first day.

    That's why I'm here... firstly I'm a forum ***** and simply LOVE chatting on forums and secondly I'll be asking you loads of questions.

    It's great to see that SA has a proper fish keeping forum! There's another one here somewhere, but I couldn't find the threads so I just left and came right back here.

    Oh, I know this is probably pure evol on this forum, but we have 2 cats aswell. So any cat proofing tips you could provide would be mucho appreciated.

    OK, that's the last long post you'll see from me for a while! My fingers need to sleepy time now.

    PS. love the smileys :thumbup:

    Thanks for the warm welcome guys 'n gals

    @ Atilla thanks... I'm completely the opposite in real life. I'm quite alive around people I'm comfortable with, but tend to shy away from strangers. Seems it's easier for me to type what's on my mind than it is to speak what's on my mind.

    @ Jaak, well the other one is definitely local, but then I couldn't find the forum, so you're probably right lol :D

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

    Have a look through the other member's tank setups under the forum "Member's setups and tanks"....
    Try and identify what you would like to achieve - and then start asking a lot of questions about it.

    The biggest thing in marines, is to have a LOT of patience. Together with our guidance here on MASA, you should be able to start your very first marine tank.

    Best would be to start only once you have acquired enough knowledge.

    Also - before you purchase ANYTHING, please come and ask our opinion - we made a lot of mistakes already in our past..... no need for you to make the same mistakes...

    Good luck in your journey into marines!

    Also - please read the URL link in my signature (the one that says "Brilliant link to thread about starting a marine aquarium").....

    masahello

    You made MASA to your first choice, I didnĀ“t. MASA was my second choice.
    The result is, we are both here and you took the short cut.
