    Hi Guys and Gals

    Been on MASA for a While but haven't been talking allot. I have been running freshwater aquariums for a while and now my boet is moving and he is giving me all of his salt water stuff. He is going to help me setup the tank but i will of course need extra help when he is not around. K the tank is 2.44m L * 60cm W * 60cm H. I dont know what lighting or filter he has at the moment but he is running a similar size tank at the moment. I will post as many pics as possible.

    Regards
    Steve

    You must give your boet a big hug, for helping you and donating equipment.
    You will kick him later for introducing you to a really fascinating, time consuming, expensive but worthwhile hobby.

    There are so much too learn, compared to freshwater. Actually what you know about fishkeeping you can throw that away. The rules are different but, wow, it is fun.

    I bought the tank myself, was going to use it for fresh water but my bout then said he will give me his salt water equipment.
    I haven't decided yet. Still going to see what is missing from the equipment and then i will plan what i would like. gonna take it slow with the tank.
