    Good day to all,

    I have had Tanks for most of my teenage/Adult live, But got bored of simple freshwater tanks. So decided to go the Marine route.

    My tank has now been running for about 3 weeks,(will post some pics). I must say that there is alot more attention needed to get going.

    I had some advantages over brand new setup, as I got hold of some already cycled water, this made life alot easier, started up, left for 1 week, checked, and the salinity was 100%.

    I do have alot of questions, but will ask them as the need arrives.

    Hello and welcome Johan

    That is not the only thing to check for, to see if you got a stable tank. Loads more to learn that what you know from the freshwater systems. Enjoy the learning curve.
