    Hi everybody,

    i live in mozambique (maputo) and i realy realy want a coral aquarium. I know its very delicate so i need a helping hand.
    Does anybody know a consultant/aquarium specialist here? Someone who can help me set everything up? And help in case of emergencies?

    Can i make my own aquarium (thick glass + silicone) or is it best to buy one?

    Thankssss

    Hi Katia, :welcometomasa2: to MASA.
    It can be delicate, but you can start by keeping things that are more hardy. It is possible to make your own aquarium, if you are practically minded. As a first timer, it would probably be better to buy one. Remember that it's easier to keep a larger aquarium stable than a smaller one, within reason of course.

    How is your water and electricity supply in Maputo?

    Hello and Welcome.

    Not sure on glass availability in Maputo, especially 10mm or thicker. Maybe better to "import" a full system from SA.

    Welcome Katia, if I were you, I would rather try collecting your own fish, as there is really some nice fish up in moz, you can get nearly all the fish that come in on a kenya shipment, maybe try Marco, the waterboy to post you skimmers and your hardware,

    Hi Katia! Welcome, you're now at the right place for excellent advice!

    Belinda is right!!!! Contact Idol Marine..... they have shipped massive tanks to Namibia and I'm sure Mozambique would pose no problem for them. Not only do they just build tanks, they offer excellent after sales service and could give you non stop support and advice!
