After many years out of fishkeeping (always freshwater), my 17 year old stated she wanted a tank. Browsing through local ads I found a 55 gal freshwater set up for sale. After a few days the joy of the hobby resurfaced. Local ads again, this time for six tanks including a 125 gallon. After setting most up for various freshwater tanks, I noticed that many of the accessories with the 125 were for a marine tank. I had zero experience, but knew a solid reef tank was incomparable to any freshwater setup (in my opinion). But, isn't it hard? Expensive? Time to start researching.

After much research. I am now the proud owner of a 125 gallon, fairly new, reef tank. My current setup includes dry rock, live sand, 2 clowns, 1 sailfin tang, 4 green chromis and a CUC. We have passed the ugly phase and have some soft coral frags starting to grow.

While I have just recently joined, like many others this forum has been a trove of wisdom for me. Thanks for helping educate me. I am sure the future will hold many other questions for you.

Welcome! Glad you joined. What a great story and exciting you are on your way! This is such a great family hobby. I'm always so pleased when my 13 year old gives up computer/video time to do fish family time.

Have you considered starting your build thread? I found its a great place to document my tank's evolution for myself. I started tank first then joined, so I'm still finding myself going back collecting pictures & updating historically as well as current state. Once you create your first post in your thread and link it to your account, they will give you build badge (look left, under my ID)

This is a good reference book type online article I still review:
