About Yourself: I am a college student, I started off with a 20 gallon tank with live rock and a freshwater filter. I soon realized if I was gonna have any kind of life in my tank I would need to invest in better equipment; I upgraded to a 38 gallon tank and bought a crappy Nano Remora protein skimmer. After three years of learning and messing things up, I have a 75 gallon tank with a sump tank, and some pretty awesome corals.
