Hello everyone,
My name is Chris and I live in Wisconsin currently. I have never had saltwater before and purchased a 150 display tank from a friend of a friend. I am super excited to really get into this! I have had my tank now for two and a half months and I am loving it! I have added another 20 gallon in the basement, as I had to treat my first four fish for velvet (lost one :() I watched a million videos and have been reading a lot online. I am looking forward to learning a lot from this and leaning on those who have gone through some adversity. Patience is my number one that I am trying to keep in mind as I continue on but I am really looking forward to having a beautiful reef tank (as I have seen some of yours! o_O)

Hi Chris and Welcome!

Sorry for your loss, but sounds like you learned from it and going strong again. That is a great attitude in this hobby. With your research and efforts, expect you'll have great successes.
