    Hi to all from another newbie.

    I am very excitedly waiting for the delivery of my new 5 foot tank this week. As I have had a number of years experience with tropical freshwater setups, both mix population and biotope tanks, I have decided that its time to go for the ultimate tank setup and do a marine reef tank.

    I am going to rely quite heavily on the good people on forums such as this, as it is all new to me, and I recognise that with such a delicate system as a reef, that helpful experience can go a long way.

    I have been reading a few books on the matter, as well as scouring the internet for information, so I am probably armed with just enough info right now to be completely dangerous to anything alive in a marine tank :m13: .

    My first real question off the bat would be, where on the Eastrand (I am in Benoni), do I find reputable reef suppliers? In the past I have used the bigger places (with varying success), and I would really like to avoid problem places right upfront.

    So thats it for now. I am sure Ill become much more annoying later.

    Cheers to all.
