    Hey Guys

    Been going through the threads for a few weeks now, massive amount of useful information on here. Have been on here all day and I am amazed at how knowledgeable and passionate you guys are about your systems. Clearly I still have alot to learn.

    I own a pet store and amongst other things have a few display marine aquariums, due to lack of space, nothing to big.

    Thanks for all the help so far..........

    Hello again Pope, great to see you here and nposting :)

    Now how about telling us about that little system you have for dispaly purposes only? What size system is it and what do you use to run it? You could even start a thread in members systems and lets see what we can do to improve your knowledge base:)

    a real hearty welcome to MASA the more you read the more likely you are to come across the comming problems we have, and that way be able to advise people on how to deal with them properly with a degree of confidence in your voice. If you are asked anything you are not sure about in store, just post the question and we can see what we can do to help :)

    hey crispin....

    A guy actually phoned me yesterday and aked me to go check out his tank. I will go through there later and do all the nessassary water tests and take a couple pictures of the system for you guys. Then we can discuss what needs to happen with it.

    I also saw in my mail that some guy asked which pet shop I am from, don't stress, I read the rules! I know I'm not allowed do do any 'commercial' posting!
