    What advice would you give new reefers?

    Read more and get advise from the forum and makes more reefer friends. Plan your overflow sump properly. Choose your equipment wisely within your budget and slightly oversize because likely in the future will upgrade to a bigger tank.. haha.. last but not least is definitely patience and the lesser you put your hand in the tank the faster it grow which i am still learning..

    (Personal questions)

    1. What made you start reefing?

    After following my friends to Coral Farm to shop for his fish, i get to see lots of beautiful marine animals upclose and that is when i decided to start reefing.

    2. What is the most important equipment in your tank right now?

    My return pump. If return pump fails, the display tank will not cool down as my return pump is link to my chiller.

    3. What do you like most about SGREEFERS?

    Very neat and informative forum.

    4. What's your favourite fish in the tank?

    Mystery wrasse

    5. What's your favourite coral in the tank?

    A.Millepora

    6. Who is the reefer other than yourself that made your reef happen / Who is the reefing kaki who has helped you most

    Want to thanks my reefing kaki Keaton for helping me to check and adjust my parameters during my 2weeks plus business trip when during that period of time i still adjusting my dosing pump for the self mix kh solution.
