    Hi to the MASA team, community and sponsors that make the sharing of knowledge on this site a pleasure. I have popped my opinion on a few topics from time to time and hope my comments have been taken with consideration.
    Most do not know me.
    I hope to learn from the interaction and readings of the threads and will pass on any knowledge i have for those prepared to listen.
    OK so what do i know. Not quiet sure enough myself. About 40 years in the fish keeping hobby with the last 15 reef keeping.
    Aquatronica aquarium control is my forte. So for those that want advice on problems, information, press my bell and help i will.
    BTW i hope to get a GHL system soon to compare.

    Hmm the eye sight is is a little hazy these days. The memory is still there. I can still remember going to school with Jack Dickson at Glenwood before he took up the cane and became head master. In those days i used to jump on my BSA bicycle and ride across the railway lines that were been built close to where they were building the congela power station to the docs and collect tubefex worms for my fish caught from the umbilo river and congela park. Many years later they built a free way blocking the path so one could not do that anymore.
    However i put my longevity down to the many years of running away from the park keeper at congela park with packets of plants and fish for the containers i scrounged.:biggrin:

    Hi Nemo's Janitor! Thanks for making your presence on MASA known to the world ;)

    Awesome to have you aboard man! And great that you can share you knowledge with us.

    Could you please be so kind as to post some pics of the various setups you might have? Including some hardware/engine room pics?

    Many thanks! Cheers mate!
    And Sean - unfortunately sometimes I too have to work my @rs3 off for the money that I earn ;)

    hey nemos:)

    ive noticed a few of your posts on masa a couple of times, so surprised you only introducing yourself now:) Its always nice to have new members who arent total noobs, so your input is very welcome.

    well done on escaping with all those blood worms, i still have mental flash backs of being chased by homeless folk in herschel park cpt when i was catching koi carp on a pin for sunday sport. i grew up, jumped the fence and found the lovelly ladies of herchell high school far better:)

    whats your main interest in marines (if you have one) is there a specific discipline that you enjoy, ie sps, mixed reef, predator?

    ps, they say joes mountain is buildt on a reef, any golden anthias in your tank?
