So... funny you have all these questions.... I have SOME answers! I started a YouTube channel and now have almost 10 videos out, doing weekly uploads and I really have enjoyed it! Come by and check it out!

As for tank... I would HIGHLY recommend the 25 nuvo lagoon by @Innovative Marine ! Let me know what you think and maybe you will sub to the channel (ALMOST AT 200 subs?!?!?)



Other videos on my channel that could be helpful when diving into saltwater. Enjoy!

Welcome to Reef2Reef! I vote for the 13.5 but I’ll admit I’m a little bias. I do love the peninsula look, it leaves space to the upgrade equipment (you’ll want to do this eventually). You’ll also want to keep in mind that it’s a small water column so once you start adding live stock it’ll be a small challenge to keep your parameters in line early on, we had to test our parameters constantly and change water weekly until the tank was fully established. It was a fantastic way to learn the hobby! We’ve since upgrade but that tank holds a special place for me, it’s still used as our QT tank today. Happy to help with any questions you might have, DM me if you do. Welcome!

Hey! Thanks everyone for such a warm welcome :D

I appreciate your thoughts! I think I am leaning towards the IM since it's such a nice looking tank, even if I will have to buy a light for it right off the bat ^^

I plan to stock pretty light (I would love a pistol shrimp/goby pair with either a yasha or tangaroa goby) since I know the tank is not very big. Hoping to get my rocks today so I can start cycling them in a bucket!
 

Would you be shocked by today's reefing hobby if you had just returned after a long period of time?
