    Hi
    Kindly assist.I have stated about 2 weeks ago when joining MASA that I am a novice when it comes to marine aquaruims.

    You all advised that I should read, read, read re......and do research. Well I now have a much better understanding of this very interesting hobby. Now for the question......Where can I buy a complete marine tank? Yes I now know more lol one with a sump, skimmer wavemaker return pump heater lights and the whole lot????

    I do not want to buy a tank with live corals and fish as I want to start everything right from thr start. (I think I must buy new) No I dont want a nano or read see one. I want a 250 litres display tank. No use telling me to build one myself. i have ten thumbs.

    Can anyone please help?????

    you can pick up bargains in the for sale section, but if you want a new tank, get one of the sponsors to build you a custom tank, that would be best in my opinion

    Go to the sponsors forum and talk to the sponsor closest to you :) - some guys have complete setups for sale.

    Or if you want brand new you could look at the Red Sea Max250, costs quite a bit though.

    Vleis my advice would be to look for a good second hand tank that comes with everything. A lot of people spend loads on a new setup, tire of it quickly and then sell it off at half the price. Obviously be sure to investigate everything thoroughly so you know what you're getting.
