    Hiya,

    I live in little ol' Port Elizabeth.
    Am currently a noob-of-note, doing much reading on marine aquariums.
    My brother (MarcD50) has a stunning set-up so I understand the task at hand and that the term "Rome wasn't built in a day" is seriously applicable.

    Although I am going against advice in the sticky's I have been offered a complete inactive set of equipment (gave up on the hobby after 2 years) for nix, nudda and for free. So basically my start-up costs should be seriously low.

    From what I can figure this means that I am restrained on all basic decisions from the outset which I reckon is both a blessing and a curse.

    The display tank is 1.2 x 500 x 500.

    First task is to transport the system home.
    Second is to start cleaning all the pipes, pumps, fittings, tanks and filters etc.

    From there I will post some pics and list items I actually have that are working.

    Any advice is not only welcome but needed.
