    Hey fellow reefers, its really been a long time since I have been active on this forum. Infact since moving to Australia 2 years ago I actually forgot that I was a member on this forum so please forgive me. I thought that since I have been inactive for so long I should introduce myself again. Anyway I moved to Australia 2 years ago. After seeing what is available here I decided to start up my marine tanks again. I currently have a 1,2mx400w x700h tank, and in it i have 4x blue/green chromis; 1 pair of marroon clownfish ; 3x azure damsels; 1x coris wrasse(juvi); 1x sailfin tang; 1x hippo tang; 1x foxface; 3x lyretail anthias; 1x valentini puffer; 1x purple tip anemone; Corals: daisy coral; finger leather; green hammer; green star pollops; starfoot; toadstool leather; xnenia tree, maize coral; various mushroom pollops and 2 types of sea sponges. The quality of liverock; corals, fish and inverts is like nothing I`ve ever seen and the pricing is very affordable. Anyway enough about that, I look forward to being active in this forum and sharing what I have learnt from this side and also learning from you guys because if there is one thing I know, this hobby is always evolving and we learn something new everyday.

    Welcome back!
    Where in Australia are you based? Have you had a chance to see the reefs there?

    Im based in perth, western australia. No I have not due to work commitments but there are reefs all over here. I met a guy that has a licence and actually collects for the marine aquarium industry and he is always inviting me to tag along but i would first need to do a diving course and get certified. Something for my bucket list for 2015

    Was back in oz last year the corals and quality of fish in Australia is absolutely amazing and heavily regulated!! I'm not sure about the laws in oz but don't think its legal to export!! Traders could learn a lot from the industry there where miles behind in sa in that respect!
