What led me into a reef aquarium is the thought of having a piece of the ocean in your house. They look awesome, and it is very full of life.

Well....when I got married my wife had a 20 gal FW. I had noooo interest at all in the tank. It was ugly, lol...fake plants, rainbow gravel...looked like a cheezy kids tank. anyway, I told her when she moved in she could bring it over, but she was going to clean it and take care of it. I heard her mention that it would be cool to have a SW reef tank on the bar in the kitchen one day. Well, her birthday was 6 months later, and I surprised her by buying her a new tank set up. Well, being a part of the acclimation process, and all the complex matter5s of setting it up got me really interested. I mean everything was alive....even the rock. How awesome is that? And all the selection....wow. Anyway, she killed of her FW on accident by doing too much of a WC and from then on, the tanks were mine...the FW bewcame SW, and now I have another countertop SW as well....and, God help me, I'm looking at getting another one. LOl, I am hooked. The funny thing is...I am a big tightwad. But, when it comes to my fish.....sky's the limit, baby! Thank God for this amazing hobby...I wouldn't trade it for the world

A friend had one and i all ways thought it was cool i had a FW tank seemed way to hard for me.So he up graded to a 150 and gave me his 55 and i was hooked. It was a fowlr with some trigers and a lion fish had it for 2 2 1/2 years.Then i up graded to a 125g reef had it for just over a year and i like it way better then my old tank.

First post here. I had a 75g reef tank and a 110g FO for 3 years in 2000 but my road travels didn't allow me to give them the attention they required. I got the bug again in December and broke down and bought a new tank now that I'm not traveling as much.

I missed it while I was out of it but what got me started was the draw to Caribbean waters. I am a huge Cozumel fan and from all of my snorkeling there and other locations over the years made me want a small part of the ocean in my home.

My new tank has been up since December 27th, 2008. I look forward to reading the forum and getting a lot of information and meeting new reefers!
