That is super exciting! I can imagine how much fun that's going to be; it seems like you have it all planned out!

Now while you are waiting you just need to listen to some music from the last time you went, that will bring back even more memories. For me all it takes is one song to bring back tons of fun times.

It's such a rush when you slide into the water and look down and you're surrounded by yellow tangs , triggerfish, wrasses ,idols etc Nothing like it in the world , you kinda just lose track of time and space as you glide over the reefs and watch the goings on.
Seeing the reefs as they really are in the wild is why I started my tank in the first place , granted you really can't duplicate what you really see out there but it sure keeps you occupied and entertained until your next great adventure.
The last few years I've been just as interested in the tiny little fish and crustaceans as the bigger guys swimming about . Its an amazing world down there, I wish every reefer has the opportunity to see it someday for themselves.

It definitely sounds amazing Dary. My husband and I both took diving lessons Years ago and he was certified In the Florida keys but I wasn't. I snorkeled above while he was taking his final test. I couldn't get past the mask clearing under water. I wanted to so badly though.

I wish I had you as a student. I taught several tricks that helped people get past the mask clearing. Bottom line, you need to be comfortable in the water. Dary, enjoy yourself as always.

Thanks Greg. My teacher didn't seem interested in helping me.

Dary's tank!

That's a shame. Diving, or snorkeling for those of us into reefing is a important part of understanding what we are attempting to recreate in our living rooms. Find a better instructor. Get very comfortable with your face in the water. You can do it.

I have had a huge mustache my whole life, so I had to get use to a half flooded mask all the time. I finally got a full face mask and with some practice that works ok.

Sorry to jump your thread Dary!

I'm right there with you Greg , I think I've had my mustache since I was six ,. A liberal amount of silicone grease strategically placed seems to have eliminated the water in the mask for me ,... Click image for larger version
