    Hi

    I'm new here, I hail from the windy city.

    I've been lurking for the past year or so, but after seeing a friends lovely 1000l setup over the weekend I have decided to register.

    Hopefully with your help I'll piece together something that would someday resemble a marine tank :thumbup:

    For now I'm just happy to read up on articles and browse through the awesome pics on the here forum :blush:

    Cheers
    SP

    firstly, thanks all for the welcome

    thank you, yes, I've been reading up a lot, even helping a friend start a marine tank, but I've never had the guts to take the plunge myself.

    I told my wife its time we start our own one. :):)

    wow, thanks a lot for the warm welcome guys!

    I have my eye on a tank at the moment, I just need to check if it will be big enough in the long run.

    bigger is better but cost a lot more to setup , make sure the tank is drilled either with a inturnal overflow or exturnal overflow it make pumbing so much easyer when u are running a sump but there are small nano tanks witha allin one

    Its only a 1 meter, but its nice and deep.

    1000Lx600Hx450D

    On my budget(which is ******* :biggrin:) it seems big enough :blush::blush:


    I'm just going to need a little more light to get to the bottom of the tank.

    I was thinking a normal 3ft tank would be fine for the sump, would just have to modify it a little to add partitions.

    But as far as I know, it is possible to do it afterwards?
