Everything. Literally everything :)
The people, the coral, the fish, the equipment, you, the vendors. It's all amazing and i'm glad to be apart of it.

Pretty new on this forum and I already got scammed. How do I report it? The guy was on last night browsing this site like nothing. And I'm out 87 dollars and a 3 head indo gold torch frag. Might not be the place to post but like I said im new here and I'm pretty upset. The guys screen name is Reef Creeper. I have all the posts and screenshots. His name and address. Can anyone here help? Or do I just take it as a lesson learned and move on?

I choose other. People fish and coral. The equipment gets me in trouble with my wife. She likes the coral fish and the people. I can't get her to understand I need more equipment to make everything happy.

That's why this hobby is so addicted. The fish, the corals, the equipments, the forum, the great atmosphere that we can feel not even knowing each other personally. This is Awesome. Love you all. :)

So I love this hobby for many reasons, but one I think that is normally overlooked by me.... is the challenge. Seriously, if this was easy I would get bored. I love that my effort, my right or wrong moves determine the outcome. It is rewarding when things go right and to watch growth.

I think that’s probably why so many people love sticks. The challenge, the reward, the fact that you can do what 90% in this hobby can’t.

We all look at our tanks and see the things we want to move around or add to our tanks.We also dream of having the newest equipment. But what I love the most is when I see someone who has no interest in the hobby just stands and stares at my tank. Then turns and say “Wow, is this real? Is all this alive? How do you do it?” (I think to myself, Hooked another one welcome to the hobby let me show you!)

I have a friend who loves my tank and asks me questions constantly. Even buys me stuff for it, but I cant seem to reel him in on starting up his own lol
