In reefing and life some people are good at many different things but not everyone is good at everything! What I may be good at doing may not be an area in which another hobbyist excels in and vise versa. So with that in mind I would like to hear from you by answering the following!

1. What are do you think you excel in when it comes to reefing? DON'T SAY GROWING ALGAE! :p

2. What area of reefing do you struggle with the most?

I excel at starting feeling into my tank, and getting lost looking at it.

I struggle, at patience and monitoring some values.

Over the years I've become very proficient at collecting aquatic animals and getting them home to my tank safe and sound.

I also think I'm pretty knowledgeable about led fixtures and there use over reef tanks.

I excel at Apex programming and automation as demonstrated in my series of Apex tutorials here on R2R:

But I struggle with identifying the cause of my recent tank crash which killed about 75% of my corals. All my parameters are within acceptable range and multiple ICP tests did not reveal anything out of the ordinary. The only thing I suspect is higher than normal PO4 and NO3, but they were not as high as those of many other successful reefers, so it’s still a mystery to me.

I excel in spending money I don’t have, I struggle by spending hours everyday on the for sale forum.

I am pretty good at setting up picos and creating my traveling tanks. I have some really cool outreach programs and love talking reefs. I am good with new reef keepers, at least I enjoy working with them.

Keeping a budget. Soemthing always comes up and I cannot resist. Also testing. Have not done in years. Just ordered new testing materials and this will be the first testing in probably 5+ years.
