Stick with the hobby and you will be rewarded with great success.
Water changes are great. Do them often. Bi-Weekly is great!
About Yourself: I started this tank when I was 18 and I really got into the hobby. Doing most things DIY because I am young and I do not have a lot of money. Sand is second hand and I have no reflectors. The Halide is from eBay and it is ghetto.
It is a DIY masterpiece. I will continue on my love for this hobby forever.
