    Hi guys
    What an awesome site.:thumbup:
    Ok,I am new here and I need all the help I can get.I always have had tropical fish and the time has come to upgrade,so to speak, to a marine tank.
    i am totally ignorant about anythign re setting up of a marine tank and I would not know where to start.So guys please go easy with the terminology as to me it would be greek.
    How do i go about setting up a tank.I would like to know more about the setting up and maintenance.
    I would appreciate any advice.

    Cheers

    Garrick

    eish eish eish.....hold on I need to sit down for a while as i am dizzy from all the terminology,pictures and discussions.
    Excuse my ignorance but what the hell is a skimmer and sump?I was looking at Noweed's set up and I thought eish eish eish........when will my tank look something like that.
    Ok chaps by now u guys know that I am a total palooka re marine fish keeping.Where can I get literature re setting up and keeping of marine fish in laymans terms.
    Is there anybody in Jhb,is it possible to meet you so you can show me exactly wht is needed to set up one and also explain as to why the different stuff is used.You can pm me your details so we can hook up please.

    cheers
