Hi from a newbie


I've been successfully running a tropical aquarium for over 6 years and have been wanting to set up a marine tank for about 2 years but wasn't sure if I was ready for such a leap.

Well, I've decided to go for it so I think I'm going to need help.

I'm taking my time. I've got a Trigon 350 with a sump. The sump needs finishing as it's basically just a tank at the moment.

Obviously the sump thing is new to me so I'm doing lots of research.

Wish me luck!
