Hello everyone, my name is Michelle and I would like to introduce myself.
I’m new to the hobby and to the forum. I’ve been in the saltwater hobby for about 6 months. Started out with a 3rd hand Red Sea 130D max. Was having issues with it , so my beautiful daughter decided to get me a Biocube 32 LED for Mother’s Day. Transfer everything except for a couple rocks and all of the sandbed.
now I have a nice clean tank that I’m trying to establish with some nice corals.
I have my clowns, Yellow watchman, pistol shrimp,snails, crabs, and my lil file fish.
I know this hobby can be expensive (any donations appreciated lol) but it can also be very rewarding. I think I’m going to keep it with all soft corals, LPS.
I have PTSD, severe anxiety, major depression, my tank seems to bring a lil joy and peace to my life.
I can’t wait to learn from you all.

Welcome!
Please take this hobby very slowly. Good things do not happen overnight. There will be bumps but with this group and patients and perseverance you will be successful!

Welcome again!

Welcome to the reef keeping hobby its a very satisfying hobby but also a challenging hobby. Just wait until you get that cube reef dialed in and have an amazing reef before you know it you will be looking for a 180 to upgrade to or have a couple different tanks lol. ( That happened to me and now i am in the middle of upgrading to a 6 ft long 125 and may even set up a couple more in the future lol )

I have PTSD, severe anxiety, major depression, my tank seems to bring a lil joy and peace to my life.
Same plus agoraphobia.
My husband started his 2nd tank about 9 months ago after being out of the hobby about 15 years.

I spend at least 60 minutes a day watching direct feeding, cleaning, or sometimes rebuilding Goby’s entrance (beastly turbo snails!). Some days I’ll be at the tank 2-3 hours.

I’m very invested in the livestock while my husband, Peter, is the science guy.

I have been finding myself more content these days. The tank has been a life changer. I leave the house on 1-2 Saturday’s a month now, (to go to reef store, of course!) and that makes my husband so happy that now he lets me pick corrals for “his” tank.

BTW, I just joined community too! Welcome!

Lol I’m not sure how to do that.
I was asking a mod if he could get your thread into the meet n greet forum is all @revhtree would be one that could assist with that possibly.
