About Yourself: Got into the hobby from my place of work, we sell both freshwater and saltwater products. Have owned only small tanks this 30 gallon is my largest so far and a 65 is in the works. Once I went saltwater I lost all interest in my freshwater cichlids as it seems much more interesting and awarding to experience keeping a reef aquarium as in a sense it is your own small ecosystem.
