    The are many 'How To' guides spread across the net, with some better than others. I recently came across this one on the reef2reef.com blog and thought it was a pretty good read. It's pretty extensive but definitely provides a very good introduction to our hobby.

    I will 'Sticky' it for a while as I suspect this will be a very useful article for all newbies.

    Thanks for the article link! I'm new to all this and looking at getting into the hobby. I've kept tropical fish before but totally know this is a whole new ball game.

    Can anyone tell me if Matt Green is still apart of this forum? He's an old mate. If your out there Matt, hit me up. Looking for some advice.

    Cheers
