    Hey Everyone,
    I have been out of the hobby for about 20 years and finally decided to get back at it again. I have had fish tanks growing, mostly freshwater until I was in college and then got a 55 gallon fish only saltwater. I had the tank for about 2 years until I graduated and as you can imagine I didn’t have much time after that. I love the site here that you have all created and even though you did not know it you have all taught me tons about how the hobby has changed and the options for setting up a mixed reef tank. I will start a thread soon for a new tank build I am working on using a IM 100 gallon ext (that is suppose to be delivered tomorrow, fingers crossed). I welcome all helpful tips and suggestions, I definitely have a big learning curve with getting started again.

    Welcome!!!
    It's good to have your feet salty again. A lot has changed and a lot remains the same. Do some research and I am looking forward to the build thread and the new tank photos.
    Share and like often!
