Quote: You Have Got to Have Faith Like A Blind Man Standing in the Middle of the Road.
About Yourself: I am currently a parole officer for the State of Texas. I have been in the correctional system for about 2 years. Before that I worked as an Account Manager for Lone Star Pet Supply out of Schertz TX. As I achieved my BA in Criminal Justice I worked for Polly's Pet Shop in San Antonio and New Braunfels (one of the largest independently owned shops in Texas). I started working there at the age of 16 and part time as recent as 1 year ago. I have over 10 years experience in the pet industry on both sides (retail and distribution). That is definitely where I learned the bulk of the knowledge about all this.
Fish Kept: There are no fish in the biocube. In the 30L I have a good mix of Lake Malawi cichlids (young ones). In the 125 I have a good mix of Tanganyikan cichlids.
Corals/Plants: In the 8g biocube I have only corals. From leathers to mushrooms to frogspawns and hammer corals, as well as zoos, etc. Some are over 3 years old. They were transferred over from a 2.5g a couple years back.
Tank Size: 125 gallons
Advice: Stick with it, read books and magazine articles, as well as ask many questions at any of the local pet shops and stores. You can always learn a lot from experienced people in he business.

About Yourself: I always liked having fish since mom had an aqurium. Ive always had a fresh water tank, I went scuba diving on a reef once and realized I wanted a reef tank to experience watching a reef and to learn first hand as I have how fragile they are..
Fish Kept: Currently: Engineer goby 8" raised from baby. Sailfin Tang 6", Snow Flake Eel 14", Velvet Damsel, Lunar Wrasse 5", Black Clown Fish 1.5", Niger Trigger 3" Had plenty of other species..
Corals/Plants: Currently: Galaxia Lost: Too much to list.
Tank Size: 75 gallons
Advice: Do not hesitate to remove a failing piece of coral from a saltwater tank ASAP to prevent a war. I had my 75 Gallon reef tank up for over a year, I always played russian roulette with my coral when they died and did not remove them. I had a tank crash on me causing loss of all coral which I learned a valuable lession. I lost well over 3000 dollars worth of coral and fish. After having a fish only preditor tank for a year I have recently decieded to switch it back to a reef tank.
