My first time posting on a forum, so here I go . . . Lol

My name is Ian Atkins, I'm 23 and been keeping freshwater aquariums since 2019, so still new! I started my first reef tank last year in April, it's a 10 gallon tank from Petco and now up to 2 saltwater tanks. I will post build threads soon!

Coming from the Freshwater side I've always been super nerdy about latin names, fish health and nutrition. I love planted tanks and cichlids (which don't mix well) lol

Saltwater is my new addiction and I'll make sure to keep my posts saltwater related! I hope to learn and grow with my hobby and share with you all how it goes.

First picture is of my new reef tank, second hand bought waterbox Marine 45, came with 2 clowns and a RBTA, the second picture is my first reef tank I setup last year. Look out for future threads!
