    Hey another KZN member! Welcome to MASA :wave2:

    Please post some pictures of your tank and sump etc - we love pics! Although your tank is settled in nicely after 7 months, please give us your water parameters, that way we will see if you're ready for corals ;)
    Enjoy your stay :)

    And yes - as Tobes said - your water parameters are very important.... and even MOVE importantly - does your water parameters stay constant?

    Welcome Vicky.

    7 months is fine, as long as your water parameters are in order and you have sufficient lighting then you can definitely start adding some corals.

    What are you doing on Sunday? Why not pop along to Sheffield beach with the family, we having a MASA get together on the beach with a few of the members and their family's.

    Scubaninja will post the link to the thread all about it.

    Hi Vicky. Yes it is reefsafe. I would not add a Domino Damsel to a tank though. They are extremely terretorial and aggressive to other tank mates.

    Hmmm:) well they are very territorial and do not really mix well with other fish due to this. So we generally avoid them and rather go for prettier fish:) i've been harassed while diving by a baby when i was resting on its rock:) So its hectcly territorial. I would say pick something else. What do you have in your tank currently? to make sure your other stuff is reef safe

    And not to mention that they will nip at your hand whenever you are working in the tank which equates to alot of water splashes :p
