  1. Working on the Reef Tank

    Okay, Kinda got one already. Some of this is the same as my intro, but I will continue to update this as we get it going.

    Hi all I am doing research for my first saltwater reef aquarium. I have had fresh water aquariums in the past. 1 community tank (55 gal.). One African Cichlid tank (29 gal (? we bought it used)). And a planted aquarium (10 gal.). I am currently doing research for when we move to a new house (Lord willing) for coral in my tank.
