    Hi all

    My four year old son and I have purchased a boyu TL-550 and it has been running a week now. So takeing it slow for now. Have had a tropical tank for two years until now. Tristan had to decide he wants nemo's, so walla we have a marine tank...

    Great to be here :slayer:

    A very WARM welcome to MASA, Pete and Tristan! Looking forward to share in this journey with you guys. Pete - how much have you read up on keeping marines, already?
    Please ask many questions - and I hope you don't mind me saying so - but PLEASE double check everything your LFS (Local Fish Shop / pet shop) says before making decisions or purchasing anything, with us here at MASA..... This is to ensure that you can have the BEST nano tank that you CAN have, and also give the fish/corals (and probably anemone's? - seeing that Tristan wants to keep "nemo's" - be careful before buying a nemmie.... We will assist you in the best way we can!

    Good luck, and enjoy your ride with your 1st marine tank!

    Welcome!
    this is the Forum to get all the help that you need.
    I see you are centurion, great stuff i love it when people in Pretoria start marines because it looks to me that most is in the cape or in durban.
    Enjoy dude!
