    Do we have anybody into Reef keeping here? I've been in the hobby now for 4+ years. Now I have a 30g finnex on my DIY stand. I've kept tank ranging from nanos to large 300g prop systems. I'll post up some pics.

    How beautiful! Are you planning on putting fish in the new tank with the coral?

    I've heard that salt water can be tricky, but I guess it just takes a lot of practice and research to get it right, just like anything else.

    I'm starting on a ten gallon right now. It will be the larger tank I will have had so far, besides my outside barrel pond. I'm trying to do everything right so my fish will be healthy and happy, but this waiting is killing me! I've managed to wait a whole week so far, but i still have a few more before I can add my fish!

    Gorgeous! I have 2 salts set up right now. I have a 29 with coral frags and seahorses. It''s only been set up since Sept so a lot of growing to do.

    I also have a 54 corner with different fish in it. I love the unique shapes and colors of the fish that you can have with with salts.

    I've only been in the hobby for a bit over a year. It's an ongoing learning experience that can sometimes have some costly results, but when it's going good it's GREAT!. I have a space in my family room that will fit an 8 foot long tank and when/if hubby ever goes back to work I want to get a reef tank in that space. If my poor freshwater angels knew what I was planning for that space they would not be happy fishies, LOL.
