Welcome to TFK, baldiemac. Your user name makes me smile. Baldiemac, I wonder what it means, lol.
Tomsk is right, we love all pics, good or bad. I don't know anything about the aquaripure system??
What size of tank are you setting up and do you know yet what you are stocking with??

I am a slaphead!!!lol
I have a marine setup and have had it running for two years or so but struggle with nitrates so thought I would give it a go, I did have a major problem when a filter went along with the heater overnight came down to a half dead tank, lost my best fish, a flame angel, trigger fish, foxface and yellow tang, saved a wrasse, damsel and clown fish, the anenome survived as did all the corals but gutted losing the fish.
I have a lovely sailfin and a lipstick tang back in the tank now along with the other 3 so looking good again, oh i also have a snowflake moray eel which is full grown (hopefully)
how do we post a pic?

the tank is a juwel vision 260

Slaphead??? :lol:

You post a pic by selecting the little paperclip in the tool bar above this frame, then you select where you want to upload the pics from your computer.
Looking forward to seeing pics. Sorry about losing your fish, that sucks.
