    hey marc:) welcome to MASA.

    great to have new people here and even better when they come as a pair:) (spawning yet???) hehhe dont answer i'm just teasing!

    what sort of tank do you have? and how long has it been going? we love helping people through the downs and enjoying the ups with them, so share a little with us and lets see if we cant get it even better:)

    Welcome to MASA, enjoy it here with us. Glad your girl is involved as she will soon learn that you need quality stuff to keep marines successful and quality stuff is pricy - now you don't need to hide the slips or lie that you got that live rock from a friend :lol:
    ...another saying: Honey, that fish was a bargain, just couldn't let it slip... do you know what a new one costs? :p

    AND then she will soon learn that you are wanting to spend more money on the tank than on her and you will suddenly have problems ...... like many of us out there!!!:no:...!

    Just teasing:thumbup:..Welcome and hope you enjoy the ride!!!
