Here is my progress on our 75 gallon reef tank. This is our first tank and I started in October of 2017. I have had a large handful of issues but it was a learning curve but I am enjoying this hobby

Welcome to our 90 gallon reef. Took this picture last night. I have managed to not kill anything nor buy anything while I stared medical leave in May. I am 9 weeks post rotator cuff repair (real close to a complete tear). My hubby has been a huge help. Oddly, I have not done a water change from Dec 31, 2019, just top off with RODI water in the sump. I dont chase numbers and I do not dose. Guess I have the 40 gallon sump dialed in.

Lost a Skunk cleaner shrimp Tuesday morning. I had this one about 3 years. I went and bought two more little ones, not knowing the price has jumped to $40 each! I get it with COVID, I bought two at $15 each when I started reefing almost 3 yrs ago.

Holy shnikes! That’s crazy Worst part something drives up prices and when that reason is gone never see much price dropping
I was shocked when the total price was $83 after taxes for two very small shrimp. I know hermit crabs have went from $1 to almost $2 each and I am about supporting local family business but I will have to shop around.
 

Is there anything that grosses you out about saltwater aquariums?
