Hi Guys

Well, I thought I may as well say hello. I've just managed to talk my number 1 financial controller into letting me purchase a "wee tank". I've got myself a 10g resun tank with the intention of starting a marine tank with LS and LR. I've had various fresh water tanks before but this is my first venture into saltwater.

I will need lot of help and having scanned the web this seems to be a friendly spot to start
I hope you will bear with the stupid questions !

Can't help with your SW stuff since I'm a freshwater gal. Just wanted to say hey and welcome to the forum.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Thanks for the comments guys,
I've just rinsed the tank out and filled it in it's final (hopefully) position. I'm just running freshwater through it to settle the stand and the floor before I even think of salty stuff but.... The boss thinks it looks good so it has passed the important test already!!

Hello David, and welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
