About Yourself: I am currently a college student and own a lawn care business. I have been in the hobby now for probably 12 years. I started with a 10 gallon tank when I was younger; however I got rid of it shortly after. Then a few years later I bought a 55 gallon tank (presently converting it to saltwater) and in 2006, I bought the 125 gallon tank my freshmen year of college.
