No one ever looks at the build threads it seems lol
I look at them all the time! It’s actually one of the first things I checked out on here. Should probably go back and comment on all the things I took advice from. Lol.

Hello, all!

I’m Leslie, from south Georgia, in the US. Been watching the forum and reading a lot since “diving” into salt, and finally found the time to make an account.

I’ve always been a freshwater girl and have been keeping aquariums and ponds for twenty years. (My dad got my first tank for me when I was ten and I’ve been in love with the hobby ever since.) I currently have three freshwater systems and a pond.

I started my first salt tank back in January (got an Evo 13.5 half price), and that very quickly snowballed into purchasing a tank from someone who wanted to get out of the hobby. Bought everything he had, from the lights and livestock down to the chaeto dying in his sump. :O

So now I’ve got the Evo set up as my zoa tank, and I’m working on “rehabbing” all of the corals he had while adding in a few pieces of my own. Tank is a Red Sea Reefer 625XXL. Move was a JOB. Battled ammonia, nitrite, nitrate and then phosphate spikes! Numbers just started to level out last month. Bacterial die-off is no joke!

Glad to be joining the community finally (I’ve found so much helpful information here already), and looking forward to the next 20+ years including saltwater systems.
