Quote: " I Love My Small Salt Water Paradise"
About Yourself: I am a 45 year old man that operated a machine in a paper company for years. I became disable after having a horrific accident at work. After being without a job and staying at home lonely cause my wife went to work and my children went to school I had to keep my mind ocupied. A friend of mine took me to his house to show me his tank and it was so gorgeous that I became interested in this type of hobby. Besides having a truck that I take all over the state for carshows.
Fish Kept: I have several kinds of fishes and invertebrates in my tank like ocellaris clown fishes, yellow tang, naso tang, blue damsel, firefish, clark clownfish pacific blue tang, stipped black and grey angel fish, chocolate chip sea star, snails, crab, blue small lobster and shrimps.
Corals/Plants Kept: Some of the corals that I have are xenia, trachyphyllia, leather toadstool coral, blue yellow and candycane sponges, etc...
Tank Size: 90
Advice: My advice to somebody that is new to this hobby is to do some research first of all. Make sure that you know what you are doing because this is an expensive hobby and not only that it requires a lot of maintenance and time. I have really learned a lot by researching and because my brother is a marine biologist in Puerto Rico.
