Hello fellow reefers!,

I've been in the fish keeping hobby on and off for almost 15 years(fresh water only)... never thought i'd own a salt water tank because it just seemed too daunting.

Fast forward to the beginning of Covid and I found myself bored and looking for something new to build, a friend showed my fiancée his salt water tank and she was absolutely in love, they both convinced me to give salt water a shot , now I'm in the process of dismantling some of my fresh water tanks to make space for salt water :)

Also this forum is the greatest thing since sliced bread, I cannot tell you how many articles i've read getting ready to get started, and to solve weird issues with equipment/livestock

Livestock:
-Mocha storm clown
-Wyoming white clown
-Candy Hog(growing him out in this one first then moving him over)
-Cant remember the name of the starfish for the life of me, I was really skeptical at first about it destroying my corals but so far so good and it's been there since the beginning, I just have to hand feed it.
-As far as corals go I don't really have a preference I just buy things I like and can keep.

Equipment:
-Waterbox cube 20
-Ai Prime 16 HD
-Nero 3
-Aquatop titanium heater 100W( a bit more pricey than a regular submergible heater but I like the LED displays and I've been using them for almost 6 years now)
-My biceps to top off this tank every other day... I really need an auto top off.
