A Beautiful place!
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 :)

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.

thanks for welcome.is a domino reef safe ?
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
