    I’m new here, new to saltwater reef tanks, new to the aquarium hobby. I’ve always wanted a reef tank, I’ve watched tons of YouTube videos, read articles, forums etc. but with so much to learn I’ve always put it off. My wife was finally like, just start. You can learn as you go, but you’ve wanted one for so long so just do it. So, I’m starting. Well, I started. I decided to start with a L.E.D. Biocube 32. It’s currently cycling. Plans are 2 clowns, 1 black, 1 occelarus. CUC... Lots of coral. I live in Tampa, FL so there’s a few really nice lfs around here! Anyway, hello.

    I have! It’s an amazing place! I plan to use Coral Corral and World Wide Coral in Orlando as my go to places. Though I’ve never been to WWC, just seen them on YouTube.

    Since I’m just getting started I’m getting my Waters from a lfs in Brandon. Not a bad little place either.

    Well Mullen has a pretty good past. We’ll see what he can do now. Pruitt... Wait.... oh yeah, the Vols did FINALLY hire someone didn’t they! lol Time will tell in both. Main difference is While Florida just hopes for improvement, and steadily getting back to greatness, Tennessee wants to win the National Title now! We’ll see how much time they allow him to build the team. I think Pruitt needs 3-4 years before he starts being seriously judged.
