    Hi you all.

    At the moment I have a 400l Planted tank (which I would like to keep as I just love some of my fishies in there:tt2:)

    I always wanted a marine tank but every one said you must first start with tropical to get into the whole maintance thing ect ect... so now I think Im ready.:)

    Where do I start??

    Ive got NO CLUE what to do and where to start.

    So please help and nudge me into the right direction.

    The tank size Im thinking of will be 1.4 x 0.5 x 0.7 high any suggestions on best size will also be great.

    I know its gonna be a slow process as I have lots to learn and I want to do thing right from the start.

    Thanks in advance.

    hi and welcome
    i would go with a tank 1.4 x 700 x 500, much better for scaping, and lighting.

    what are you thinking of keeping to start, fish, then move to corals etc?

    either way a protein skimmer should be your first buy
