    Hi all

    I have been browsing Marine Aquariums South Africa since July this year, so i thought - i should pop a nooby thread in, as this is why we are all here. For info etc...

    This website has helped me a lot and i must give thanks to all the admin, moderators and the registered users for taking their time and putting together great threads.

    :m106:

    This is my Nano tank from July to November :)

    Hi
    Its a magic wave 102L. I will definitely upgrade in about two years. This is my learning curve :)
    Tank is L60cm, W40cm n H52cm.
    Skimmer im not sure, its in the back n comes with the tank.
    Lighting is t5 tubes.

    Everything is growing, will look better in a while :thumbup:

    The supplier is on this forum. His name is Lawrence from aquariasa n I highly recommend him. He went beyond out of his way for me.

    I would not keep tangs in anything under 250 litres and even then they need to be small, when they grow they need to be transferred to a bigger tank.

    So 2 tangs in a 102 litre...

    I did not know that about tangs :(
    Yeah the yellow tang is getting big, I was thinking about him the other day.
    You have asserted me then. I will see if I can trade him.
    Thanks :)

    you going for a Finding Nemo tank :) something like i wanted,
    but those Dory's are abit on the difficult side,
    the tangs will need to move, i have had this realization now aswell, its horrible, i LOVE my yellow tang,

    but your tank can look awsome with some Cardinals, and gobys!

    love the clowns!

    Great looking tanks dude!!

    There are some truly outstanding gobies out there. Maybe get a possum wrasse, cling fish...the possibilities are endless with nano's.
