About Yourself:Not much to say about me besides I'm addicted to SW fish. Started after 10 years of freshwater and I'll never go back. Learned some things the hard way until I got smart and started listening to those that had far more experience than I.

Comments: I'm Portuguese and the Brazilian version of the Age of Aquariums was among the first sites where I initiated the hobby. Since then a long time has passed and nowadays I have this 1000 L reef tank. It's not easy to set up an aquarium in Portugal, the equipment is expensive and the livestock isn't beautiful, so I travel regularly to the coral propagation farms in Germany to acquire what I have today. I'd like to see my tank distinguished on the Age of Aquariums.
