    Looking for either a complete system, either with live stock or without. Max budget about R4500, but not that keen on spending that. Depends what is on offer. Looking to buy ASAP so let me know, must be in Cape Town

    To be honest, for that amount of money you'll only be able to set up a nano tank (quite small). There are a lot of extra costs involved (that I didn't anticipate at first). Unfortunately this hobby is as expensive as it is cool! :)

    That said though i'd advise on looking into a second hand tank, theres some good deals to be had. If I were you i'd save up a bit more so you can get a larger tank.

    Just my 2c

    Welcome to MASA!
    take your time and setup.get the basics for now ie.tank stand sump,skimmer,LR and lighting.then slowly work your way upwards as finances allow.this is how i and many other reefers have started off.getting hands on corals wouldnt be that bad,as theres lotsa reefers constantly fragging and sharing :)O

    by the way,lotsa patience is required,been there and it can be frustrating,espescially when looking at other guys fully stocked up tanks and all the fancy equipment hooked up to it.you will find bargains along the line,as lotsa reefers selling this,that or the other ;)
