Hey everyone!

I have been keeping a saltwater tank for a little under 2 years now. First fish and then started into corals ~9 months ago. Addicted now haha. Currently have a mix of SPS (acros, monti caps, digis) and LPS as well. Lots of great info on this site that I've used during this awesome learning and growing time with my tank. Wanted to say thanks for all the useful information I've received from you guys and also to officially introduce myself.
