    Hi People,
    I used to be a crazy kid lucky enough living close to the beach and starting collecting and keeping all sorts of corals & fish....
    Anyway to cut a long story short it's been about 10years and I want to get into it again, possibly doing a built in tank out of brick and concrete with access to natural light! i'm in the building trade so that side I should be fine on, but i'm sure a lot of you have some advice coz things I'm sure have changed over time?? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
    Sea ya soon
    B

    hey brent :)

    welcome to masa, its a great place to learn about marines. Things have changed a little in 10 years and you will do well to read up alot on the forums before you go ahead and spend any money.

    Mekaeel gave you a great thread to read through, get 18 beers for company and take some notes, it will take you a while to get through, it was a great thread, ok tank but not tank of the month :)

    I am sure you will have lots of questions, especially about natural lighting, and if you are looking to go that far, do you have a big tank in mind?


    welcome to masa, nice to have you here :)
