Hey everyone, I‘m Eric. 26 years old and living in Germany.

My girlfriend and I are completely new to the hobby. We were thinking and researching about reef tanks for quite a while, but when we saw a 250litres tank on eBay with sump, return pump and wavemaker for 30€, we just couldn‘t resist.
So there we are, after a weekend of building and waiting for the RO/DI water to form, I started our tank yesterday evening.

I really look forward to learning from you folks and excuse me if I ask a complete newb-question from time to time.

Cheers!
Eric
