About Yourself: I started this tank when I was 18 and I really got into the hobby. Doing most things DIY because I am young and I do not have a lot of money.

Corals/Plants: I love millipora and montiporas, hammers, and touch corals, mushrooms, GSP.
Tank Size: 55 gallons
Advice: Reading is most important. Stick with the hobby and you will be rewarded with great success. Water changes are great. Do them often. Bi-Weekly is great!
