About Yourself:Oreginally i'm from Ukrain, so tell you right away sorry for my spelling errors wich i have ALOT. SOrry.
Now i live in Oregon,
I started my first saltwater tank in 2003. I have been in and out of the hobby a few times due to work-related issues, but my interest in marine aquariums has never waned. Today we are living in a different world with so many more technical enhancements, which is one of the things, along with those few years of trying and testing, that made it possible.
Fish Kept:10 blue damslzzz, 2 Naso tang , yellow tang, 2fireshrimps,2 cleaner shrimps, 1 sea orcher, ect. i'm more like a corals hobbiest, so all my $$$ i spend on them.
Corals/Plants:total coral numbers are: hard corals 12 soft corals and leather corals, ect. are about 29.
Advice:if anything, read the advice of the top 10 rated tanks!!! and read as much material as you can - internet, books, word of mouth. and there's no such thing as overkill when it comes to maintaining your water quality!
Description:it's hard to take pics with no glare, even harder to take them when all the fish are out! (and even still only 1/2 the fish are pictured.) the tan k is 4ft front to back; it's real hard to capture that perspective from a dead-on front angle
About Yourself:STARTED WITH FRESH, LEARNED ABOUT WATER TRAITS THEN WENT TO SALTWATER GATHERING INFO FROM LOCAL HOBBIESTS AND THE 2 MARINE STORES IN TOWN. I USUALLY STOP IN AND IF I SEE SOMETHING THAT'S NEW TO ME I ASK ABOUT IT
Advice:Read, read, then read some more. Forums are awesome for opinions. Find someone with an awesome tank, and ask them questions, and do what their doing.
Find an LFS you trust, online stores just cant give you the same assistance, and dont buy products online just because their cheaper, then expect to get good help at an LFS.
