Hey everyone,

I'm brand new here. I finally moved into my own apartment and now I can finally have an aquarium(s) in my new place (I was not able to in me previous living situation). I had tanks when I lived with my parents so I'm not 100% new at this but it has been a little while. No idea if my first tank should be freshwater or salt water. I'm also interested in possibly doing a ManGrove aquarium...is there a forum/thread about that? Any beginner threads please let me know. I have this tank in storage for a few years. no idea how many gallons it is. Anyone have a good educated guess how bit it is?

Also and Phish fans on here?

Thanks guys!

Welcome to Reef2Reef!!! Here is a link to an aquarium size calculator:


Additionally, if you use the R2R search feature (upper right hand corner) you will be able to find plenty of information on mangrove tanks (and a lot of other great info depending on the search term you use):


Good luck with your new adventure! :)

Welcome! If I had to guess (which I don't because you can use the calculator to get the correct number) I'd go with 55 or 60 gallons. Fresh or salt is all preference, but a lot of us have both. Mangrove are fun, but they have their own challenges. If you decide to do a saltwater tank or mangrove tank (or both!) make sure you do a build thread!
