Advice:Persistence is key.
I have had more people than I can count tell me Im too inexperienced or too young or that it is too hard and I couldnt keep sharks or have a 300 gallon tank.
Be true to yourself!
Throughout the whole time I stuck to what I wanted not what other people wanted.
Set high goals.
If you want a huge tank or cool fish you have to have high goals. As soon as you compromise your dreams is as soon as you are going to not have the dream tank you want.

About Yourself:I just got into the hobby about 2 1/2 years ago. My first tank was a 5 gallon eclipse tank with all kinds of freshwater fish like guppies, neon tetras, mollies, etc. I got into cichlids for a while and then onto saltwater fishes. I love the saltwater tanks but still enjoy the freshwater tanks as well.
Fish Kept:2 Amphiprion percula (Percula Clownfish), and 1 Chrysiptera cyanea (Blue Devil Damsel)
Quote:let the tank develop naturally with minimal interference

Now i live in Oregon,
I started my first saltwater tank in 2003. I have been in and out of the hobby a few times due to work-related issues, but my interest in marine aquariums has never waned. Today we are living in a different world with so many more technical enhancements, which is one of the things, along with those few years of trying and testing, that made it possible.
Fish Kept:10 blue damslzzz, 2 Naso tang , yellow tang, 2fireshrimps,2 cleaner shrimps, 1 sea orcher, ect. i'm more like a corals hobbiest, so all my $$$ i spend on them.
