Mandarin dragonettes are the devils

Admit it! Everyone in this world loves beautiful things. Including myself. That explain everything. Almost everything under water is magnificent. Another theory is that things in the ocean which we don't normally see on LAND is kind of mysterious to us and if we can keep these things in our life right in front of us that makes us satisfied. At least that's how I feel.

I like people come around have a look at my tank. People who see a saltwater tank is like: "is it possible? I thought we can only see this on tv?" I even have people asked me about the coral which is swaying in the current: "are they real?" and you can see those unbelievably big eyes they show. This happened many times.

Oh, and it looks good in the house too.

It was last year when i went to the bahamas and went scuba diving and saw all those gorgeous fish and I soon converted my freshy tank to my saltwater.

My boyfriend took me to the LFS because he is a reefer and wanted to share his pleasure with me. At first I was not so impressed. He offered to get me a Nano so I started looking at the fish differently. I was trying to find the right fit... Which ones did I like? Which ones would live together well? Which ones would survive in such a small tank? etc...

Soon I got hooked by the variety of fish and coral available!! There are so many species! So many beautiful mysteries! So much to learn and consider...

That was only two months ago. I stated with a Nano (24 gal). I now have that and two new 55 gallon tanks plumbed together on a central sump with a third 55 wainting in the wings... Les'see... that means I'm already adding 16.25 gallons a week.... I better slow down! At this rate my whole apartment will be underwater in less than a year! Ha ha!

Well, almost 20 yrs. ago I had a 55 Gal. SW FO tank that I really enjoyed. Had it for about 6 yrs. Then, just recently, I wanted a nano tank to fit between 2 chairs in my living room. Bought an Eclipse System 12 Bowfront that I really like. The reason I bought it???? When those **** GEICO and DRUG commercials come on I just have to hit the mute button, turn my head and RELAX. I miss most of my favorite shows becuase I forget about the T.V.!!!! I guess thats another bonus of enjoying a salwater tank.

I popped 3 balloons at the county fair about 15 years ago. Then found this really neat 2.5 gallon swirly tank that became my "Neon Tetra Tank". Then the 10. I kept the 10 gallon for about 5-6 years and then moved and never set it up. (So I threw it all away). Then I met my wife and she had a TERRIBLE 10 gallon tank. I quickly showed her my mad fw tanking skills and so she married me! lol After that we got our 20 gallon and it stayed fw for about a year. Then we moved to VB and after visiting the most AWESOME LFS I have ever been to i bought a bag of salt! Thats when I setup the 20 gallon as a SW tank instead of a FW tank...

Now I just keep pumping $$ into the 20 gallon.. I can see this leading to a 55 quickly... lol
