    A Beautiful place!
    Welcome to MASA Johan, glad you decided to join before buying anything - this just saved you a lot of bucks.
    Please read the link below, there are some very valuable info for you to start your first marine tank.
    Also, don't just trust any petshop - they'll sell you outdated stuff and might give you wrong info just to get your cash. Ask us here first, our advice is free and we have a lot of experience here ;)
    Please have a look at our sponsors as well, they know their stuff and will gladly put you on the right track :)

    hello johan and welcome to masa, by far the best place to learn about marines :)

    great to hear that you want to convert from bathwater to pretty tanks, its really alot more fun this side:)oh and you can keep nemo's too! :)

    have you had much thought into what type of tank you would like to keep? a mixed reef with a few corals, some fish and a few inverts perhaps? Or is there a specific aspect of marines that really facinates you. Once you decide what type and size tank you would like (big is almost always better) bounce the ideas off us here first and we can point out anything in your planning you might have missed:)

    have a good read through the begginners sections (oh and be careful you read those links in tobes signature carefully, he often tests people on them.....) there is alot to start off with in there :)

    welcome and happy postings:)
