About Yourself: I am in the military and got into the hobby for my kids and it kinda just blew up from there and now I have a 120 gal., a 55 gal., and a 45 gal. and just got rid of 2 20 gal., and 2 10 gal., due to having to many tanks. I'm slowly working on a planted tank and a Malawi Rift lake tank. I have done all sorts of setups from Small community tanks to saltwater to highly aggressive tanks. I have been doing the hobby for going on four years. It's more of a passion to me than a hobby and will always do it for the rest of my life and eventually want to have a Pond with koi and about three giant tanks in my house.
