So it begins!!!! I was at the LFS with my wife. We were picking up a 7 gallon cube for my daughter’s birthday. I wanted to get her something better for her Betta. She is in college and I thought it would be nice for her new apartment. All of the sudden, my wonderful wife turns to me and says “why don’t you get a tank for yourself?” Needless to say, I was floored! I started talking about the plants I could get and some freshwater fish. Without missing a beat she says “Don’t you want a reef tank? That would be really awesome.” I have been out of the hobby for 30 years. I had a 70 gallon when I was in college. My Career got started and I had to move 1000 miles away. Needless to say, I sold the tank. With he career and beginning a new family, time was limited. I am just getting back into it. This time I plan to document as much as I can. The last time I was into reef keeping, I read many books. The internet wasn’t really a thing LOL. I have been researching everyday here and I have learned so much more than I thought I would. My best way to explain it..... THINGS HAVE CHANGED Of course the tank had to be ordered. This was 4 weeks ago. It should be here next Friday. This is what I have been working on for the past few weeks!! Hope you all enjoy!! I built the stand from scratch after contacting the manufacture for exact specs. It’s a Deep Blue 60 gallon reef ready cube.
