Advice: I read a book and decided to do Fish only because everything I read made coral and reef systems sound so hard and impossible - the fish only went so smooth I decided to turn it into a reef system - Im glad I did -Read but dont take it all to heart - you can ask 100 reef tank keepers the same question and get 90 different answers - You have to take it on your own and figure out what works best - there will be errors - but in the long run it will pay off - and you will fall in love with it.

Quote: Live today - worry about tomorrow - tomorrow
About Yourself: Needed a hobby to keep me out of trouble - this sure did the trick - Im now either working on the tank or sitting down to enjoy it - I havent had my TV on in months
