I'm still in college going for a B.S. in Biology - Pre-Physical Therapy and Pre Med while working as a contract worker in a law firm, so money is a bit tight but this is my splurging hobby! A little background on me, I played competitive hockey ever since I could remember and suffered a TBI a few years ago while playing in a prospects league.Since then I have been dealing with the after effects of a TBI and have been constantly battling to try and get back to a normal life. Soon after the TBI is when I took up the hobby to pass my time and find something productive to do. For as long as I can remember we have always had at least one freshwater tank in my house ranging from at least a ten gallon to a 55 planted. So one day I decided to buy a 55g from Petco's $1 per gallon sale and my step dad convinced me to to make it into a salt water tank. So I did my research and found out the 55 wasn't a good choice for me because it wouldn't give me the depth I wanted. So after waiting around for a few months and going to several LFS's just to look I bought an IM Nuvo Fusion 10. My 10 gallon has been thriving with only a few hiccups here and there and I've been wanting to step up to a big boy tank. After doing some research and talking to some local reefers, I decided on the JBJ 30 just because I love the idea of the rimless and got a $300 bonus out of the blue (One of the local reefers owns his own aquarium maintenance business so he sold it to me for the wholesale price since I've been going to him for months, only paid $250 and he threw in four frags for my ten gallon!). I don't really know what I am planning to keep in the tank but probably just doing a mixed reef. Before I go all out and splurge on upgrades to the tank, I have to finish a custom stand I am building. I started the build about 6 months ago and life got in the way. Its about 9 feet long, and just about 3 feet wide and four feet tall. I built it with a 55 in mind but since I have decided to go another route I will be making a few modifications to it. I originally planned for it to house 2 55's on top, one reef and one planted, with a custom bearded dragon cage built into the bottom below the planted and a hidden section under the reef tank for a sump. But now I am re-planning and at a lack of money wall lol. So here I am. Just a college guy with a 10 gallon and an empty 30 gallon. Updates will come soon I promise!
