Hello all my name is Stefan . I met my wife back in September 2002. As an Airman First Class I was broke most of the time. Some of our most memorable dates were to local fish stores in Belleville IL.

Fast forward to October 2014 Heather gave me my Christmas present 75g tank. The instructions were to have fish in by Christmas. I told her I would change my 55g freshwater to the salt and the 75 would be my new freshwater. She told me nope the 75 is going to be your salt water tank and you need to have fish in by Christmas.

Nice tank and thank you for your service stefan.
Welcome to my dream. I was only able to serve because of the people and generations before me. It was a pleasure to serve.

2015 was a good year. Christmas I found a the fluval reef light first gen on clearance at petco. Started adding some coral.

you can see all I added . This was my first dabble in corals . I lost a lot and hadn't heard of reef2Reef yet. Probably would have saved me a ton of money and live stock. Oh well lessons learned the hard way . Also found out some lfs our out just for the sale. But the tank was coming together.

yep you see it right. I had a sailfin and hopping tang in a 75. Please send me to jail. ;Woot

Lfs said they would do fine in 75:eek:
Still have the sail fin and the foxface. I know they need a bigger tank.
