I have a similar story, but larger appetite. Went full 300 gal out of the gates. started back about 18 months ago lol. Now I am a full addict again . Things are going great. Reach out to reef to reef with any questions, they’ve been great. I’m in mount Horeb, when your set up DM and I will set you up with some monti’s. Mine need some serious pruning. Good Luck!

That is pretty awesome! One of the things that have stuck with me are all of the highs and lows of this hobby. I'm not sure I am ready for this lifestyle again. By the end, all I had to do was clean the glass and change the water now and again. But the sleepless nights, sick fish, unexpected emergency purchases at the pet store because now I need another quarantine tank, etc. I learned a lot of lessons the hard way. I do believe that equipment and automation has come a long way, but patience isn't something that can be purchased or automated away. That was the most difficult lesson that I learned and it changed my life for the better. If I do make the leap, I'll hit you up when I feel I'm ready. Thanks!!!

What is your most favorite type of reef tank?
