Hi Everyone,

I'm honoured to have been asked to host this Guest Forum.

For those who don't know me, here's a little background: I'm a keen hobbyist marine aquarist and DIY enthusiast. I have no commercial affiliations, and pride myself on being impartial and unbiast.

I have been keeping tropical fish for the past 40-odd years, and a marine reef tank for the past 10 years. During this time I have learnt a great deal, and have paid a lot of school fees :whistling:. I'm by no means an expert, however, and look forward to learning just as much on this forum as I will be teaching others about this great hobby of ours (did I say "hobby" - I mean lifestyle...).

I do have a very demanding daytime job, and will mostly not be able to answers posts during working hours (except now while I'm on holiday :) ). I will try to check in every evening, though, and will do my best to answer all posts (even if it's just an honest "I don't know...").

So, fire away :wave2::1::yeahdude::thumbup:

Welcome Hennie, it's an honour to have you as a special guest.

Sorry, I was busy typing up an introduction and lost my connection and I see you've beaten me to it :)

You've pretty much said what I wanted to say and just wanted to add that you were one of my mentors when I started out in this hobby. I have learned much from you and your ability to communicate things in lay mans terms that even I could understand :)

Welcome to the team :thumbup:

Hi Hennie

Congrats and I believe well deserved. I've heard they gonna call for a public holiday and a official handing over ceremony , where you will be given the "Freedom to The City of Bloemfontein" key. I hope they give you a seat, no make that a double compartment on the Official " Sous Trein "

Good for you and The Free State - Province!!!!!!! sorry cheetahs.

My apologies to Wee-Man, Sihaya, Seashell and all otheraliens that arenot fortunate enough to be educated in the language Afrikaans . If you relly want to know what " Sous Trein " is just ask and we will explain.

Sanders

If it can be done...

Hennie, now see what you've gone and gotten yourself into man?!
:w00t:

Good, sobering direction, is always in short supply.

Good on you, to start sorting out that deficit!

Congratulations Hennie....Love reading your posts ,Poignant, salient, and i gathered early on, unbiased. Sometimes difficult when you have an opinion. Well done.

(did I say "hobby" - I mean lifestyle...).
They say diet is a lifestyle. They (clever people) also say that every 3 months homo sapiens by nature need to throw a party, have a gathering, let his/her hair down and let off some steam. We have a gathering every evening after work and sometimes during work, and sometimes during class, or when we should be studying. Thats not a hobby.......you see, you just make so much sense:)
and will do my best to answer all posts (even if it's just an honest "I don't know...").
