Hi my name is Lex, used to have a 65 gallon reef tank in 2002 but had to give it up after my cpr skimmer malfunctioned and unloaded half my tank on to my floor. After 19 years of adult life and a wife, I am ready for round 2 in this hobby. Recently went through some unfortunate events with the significant other which led to more freedom and money and a new apartment that actually allows fish tanks. Even got my new landlord to start building a reef tank of his own. When one door closes another door opens! I'm glad to be back and hope to get my build thread going soon! I have a UNS 90L I recently converted to a reef tank constantly updating and a waterbox 3620 I'm making in to a peninsula reef tank, in hindsight I wish I got the 4820 but I'm sure more changes to come. thank you r2r I'm glad to have finally joined r2r after always browsing the boards and dreaming of having another reef tank.
