    Hello all,

    Andy here from Butler, MO. I have been in and out of the hobby for 15 years due to military life. I am retired, so now I have plenty of time for my aquarium.

    Current Aquarium (2015-Present) Basic kit that BRS had going in 2015.
    IM 20G NUVO Fusion: Ocellaris Clownfish and Neon Dottyback.
    Filtration: Custom Caddy with Purity Pack Filter Media.
    I did buy a ghost skimmer, but it was the wrong size. I didn't want to deal with it, so it has sat in the bottom of my stand for 2 years.

    New Project Reef Aquarium
    125G 5ft long aquarium. Absolutely nothing on it, or cut yet. Intentions are to cut for a sump.
    I did just buy the 16" Shadow Overflow.

    I am all ready for suggestions on what to get from this point if you wish to indulge me.

    I have had a 100G aquarium before, so I have some experience with a large tank.

    welcome. Hope you start a build thread. I just upgraded, or rather, added 125 tank. Have coral and fish in qt for it. This is a great place to share your journey.

    Welcome! Thank you for your service! We just retired out of the Navy as well. Just started my build thread and am in the process as well. Looking forward to your updates and posts. You'll find this particular forum very helpful and, most importantly, full of great folks with little or no ego, eager to help. Quite a refreshing change from the "other" forum.
