I've had a few saltwater tanks. A 55 and 125 FOWLER. A couple attempts at a reef tank that I never saw through. Kept a few corals but nothing ever grew and I never got past the ugly phases. Certainly had the most fun with my 125 that housed two big Trigger fish. But I sold my set ups and moved on to other hobbies, duck hunting and building gaming PC's.

But I caught the reef bug again! I feel that I've learned alot over the years and here recently I've been learning a whole lot on YouTube following my favorite reefers.

My dream tank right now is a thriving mixed 20 gallon reef with a pair of designer clowns! This size tank matches my home space and will fit just about as much coral as I can imagine being responsible for at this point!

So here is where I am right now. Thanks for looking!

Welcome to R2R!

I see the evidence of the PC build hobby in your Apex mount/cabling. What did you carry over from duck hunting?

Do you house a "Reef Safe" Angelfish in your reef tank?
