Welcome almost-neighbor! You're in a FANTASTIC area for reefing. Tampa has so many great stores. Let me know if you have any questions - I'm not an expert but I know a little about the area and am happy to help!

Hello,

My name is Justin born and raised in the Tampa Bay, FL. I'm new to the reefing and saltwater world. As a kid I always wanted a saltwater tank but my parents would never let me have one. Fast forward 25 years and due to COVID I've been working from home since March 2020 and have just been reading and reading and reading (I also watched some YouTube videos as well) and I've finally pulled the trigger. My first aquarium is a WaterBox 20g AIO. I've just finished the aquascape and I have almost all of my supplies to get this tank running. Just need to finish building my stand.

I really appreciate all of the knowledge here on this site and the amazing builds many of you have done! I'm sure I will have many questions once I really get going.
