Hello reefkeepers one and all. I'm new to reefkeeping myself. Some long-ago experience with freshwater aquariums is about all I can claim. Work kept me on the move, so an aquarium of any type was infeasible over the last three decades. At present, I'm researching a new build, haven't settled on anything, and have questions about everything. The only settled question is location. As my profile shows, I live in Kansas, which is about as far away from the marine environment as one can get in the U.S. (at least in the last 85 million years, when we were part of the ocean). I haunt the 4-5 LFS occasionally, adding to my catalog of questions and ideas. R2R has been a blessing, since no one seems to write books on the subject. Look forward to learning from the hive (or is it "school" here?) and to eventually sharing my mistakes, woes, and eventual success. Thank you for adding me to the community.
Welcome! Glad you joined.

I miss books, but this is a helpful online article since online is the "new book"

Excellent suggestion! I’d not seen that reference yet. Thank you very much.
