    Hi Guys,

    Once again I am starting a tank, been a couple of years and wow, things have changed.
    Bought a Red Sea MAX 130D, really impressed with the build quality, thought that I go this route this time.
    Just started filling the tank and salt, next step live rock... and small pieces available in the roodepoort area?
    Hope to chat with you all :yeahdude:

    Thanks for the welcomes guys
    Ross's tanks have been amazing - the new one is a absolute beaut! (I may have to
    beg Ross to get some grags off him when the tank is ready)
    Umm... how can you say that to someone with a reef... there is def no dark side ;)
    Going to find rock this weekend (well that's the plan).
    Sand Bed - Check
    RO Water - Check
    Salt - Check
    SG - Umm... maybe check tomorrow

    ThaneF - to post pictures, you scroll all the way down to the bottom - to the "Quick reply" window.... in the centre below the "Quick Reply" window, you get a URL link "Upload Image"....

    You will then get a popup to browse your local HDD to search for the photo....

    Just ensure that the photo/s have been resized to 800x600 and a maximum file size of 225KB....

    Got live rock on the weekend (thanks for driving Ross)- around 10kg's.
    Been playing around with the rock and this is what I came out with, this is the second design already so it may change again and again and again. Let me know what you guys think :whistling:
