Well let me get right to it lol! I have always been in love with the hobby and have kept (very lazily) a few smaller reef tank 55 Gal and below in my time lol. I recently honorably separated from the Marine Corps and came back home to my wife and daughter after being stationed in Japan and my AMAZINGLY AWESOME wife surprised me with a MASSIVE peninsula style Waterbox 7226!!! I am here to learn, get, and give support as much as possible. This is extremely exciting and I would love to share my experience, receive advice, and grow with you all! Thank you!

Most importantly, thank you for your service. Secondly, welcome to R2R and your new reefing family. Please start a build thread so we peninsula lovers can follow along on your progress.

Welcome! First, give a kiss to your wife from all of us(in a non-creepy way please) lol! That's an awesome welcome home gift. Second, being a father too, give your daughter a hug, she's adorable.

Remember to take it slow and resist the urge to do too much too quick. There are several great reef shops in Atlanta. Pure Reef was always my favorite on the north side.

Oh, and start a build thread!
