Good Day Everyone,

So after many long night reading on forums and watching videos on youtube amd seeing so many tanks and ideas and possibilities with a marine setup, I decided to make the move from Fresh Water to Salt water.

I managed to get a decent deal on a IM Nuvo 30 with the AIO, and since the tank, i managed to find a ghost protein skimmer at a LFS, unfortunately in South Africa the marine side of fish keeping is very small and products arent as varied as many other countries.

The tank has been wet since July 12th which is when i added Carib Sea aragonite and a few pieces of Marco rock. The ghist skimmer has been set in the one compartment of the over flow and the other side has a normal over fkow filer box with carbon matrix and denitrate which flows over some live rock to the return pump.

Lighting is a basic Zetlight which i will upgrade in the near future, flow is done vy a mantis tourbon 2 which i think on its lowest setting is kicking the sand around.

The tank has been cycling wirh Seachem stability so constantly testing to check ammo and nitrate levels, getting eager to add the firsr 2 clownfish. The Bioload on the tank should be low as i am going to focus more on making it a niche little reef tank.
