    Hi all. My name is Schaun and I'm from Pretoria. Eye specialist of profession but selling cars at this moment.
    Was introduced to freshwater at 16 and loved it since.
    Was introduced to reef keeping by Ferdie, previous owner of Dorry pets.
    My tank is about 7 Months old, and o boy it has been one big problem after the other.
    Thanks to people like Lanzo From Dorry Pets , Adriaan From Idol Marin and this sight i have pulled trough.
    Would love to tell you all about it and post some pictures.
    Thanks for a grate sight and all for sharing there knowledge. I also believe that knowledge should be shared freely.

    Hello Schaun! A VERY WARM WELCOME to MASA! Great to have you on-board!

    It is really a pity that you have not been able to join MASA, BEFORE you started your marine tank.
    UNFORTUNATELY, we have found that there are many unscrupulous fish store/pet stores out there, that either does not have the knowledge, or, does not care - to sell the correct equipment, and correct life stock, to people who want to start up marines!

    Please post all the questions / issues you have here, and we will try our utmost BEST to assist in getting everything resolved. It will just take TIME.

    Please take note: IT TAKES A HUGE AMOUNT OF PATIENCE to keep marines successfully!

    Also - PLEASE READ AS MUCH AS YOU CAN. Also - PLEASE ASK AS MANY QUESTIONS AS YOU CAN!

    Good luck with your journey into marines! May you have a successful trip, together with us here on MASA!

    hello schaun, welcome to MASA.

    sorry i was a little confused by your post, perhaps you will correct me. But i understood you were an eye specialist? is that right? cant be....and eye specialist would know that the best way to communicate with us is with pics and i cant see any pics of your tank yet, so get posting them will ya! :)

    great to hear that you have the support of two sponsors already, both companies have great reefers behind them and you are in good hands there. But its a good idea to check with the collective minds of MASA too, so post your tank build and let us help you along, its a lonely road leading to algae and hassels without masa to guide you along :)

    welcome and happy posting :)
