    As the title states, I am new (and my name is Nora). I have a love for the ocean and all of it's inhabitants, and I have two small dogs, a paludarium, a betta fish tank, a terrarium with hermit crabs, and a twenty gallon tall nano reef tank. My nano reef is over a year and a half old! My tank is kind of budget... and no protein skimmer... or crazy lighting... or sump/filtration... but it seems to be pretty mature and happy now! *knocks on wood* Can't wait to share and learn more about this AWESOME hobby!!!

    Thank you so much! It has been a struggle in the past. it is my very first tank and it started off kinda badly ;Dead had a mass invert die off and lost a couple of fish in the first few months. But, I think that now that I have a refractometer, knowledge, matured a tiny bit... etc. it is now stabilizing!

    I can see that both of us love yellow watchman gobies! Mine enjoys slapping his pistol shrimp when he gets annoyed. I get the impression that the shrimp is like a really clingy boyfriend. :p
