About Yourself: ive always enjoyed fish i had a 10gal freshwater tank for about a year, found out my grandparents had a 20 gal long tank sitting around so i took that and had both tanks going for another 2 years. finally got some money and baught my 55gal. started it with freshwater trying differnet types of fish for about a year. finally made the leap into saltwater, havent looked back since. been enjoying the experiance for a little over 2 years now. had alot of money problems and havent had the chance to get the tank stocked the way i really want to yet but crossing my fingers i hope to get it going the next few months. also looking to upgrade a little to a 60 gal display tank, really wana get more into this hobby, i still feel theres ALOT to learn.
