Great story. Well, everything but the separation part. What a great way to spend time with you son.

That's a great story. My son showed no interest in the reef tank growing up, but when he moved out to his own house, first thing he did was setup a nano. So I guess it did make an impact. He has studied up and now knows as much as the old man.

A trip to Egypt and the wonderful Red Sea planted the seed.

Then a year later when our first son was born I bought a tank for him and I now have a complete obsession with reefs and am loving every second.

My new tank is under way and looking good for stock very soon.

How it all started.

I can sum up my addition in just one phrase...
It's all my wife's fault.

The Fact...

The love of ocean and the fact that I can have the ocean in my own home (sorta) its just a amazing hobby and the fact that my wife loves it to makes me so happy that i can still have my fishy friends in my life

My dad has always had tanks set up in the house about 5 of them all FW. Some with plants some without. We had community fish and chiclids. When I was about 16 he gave me one of his 55's which was a community tank with plants I was to keep that going and I did for about a year and a half. I had bought more plants and fish than I could fit in. Once I learned everything I thought I could, I went to my LFS traded everything I had in the tank for everything to start a reef I paid nothing so that tells you what I had in the tank. Now I own a beautiful Reef Tank and a nano reef. Could ask for a better hobby.

Always enjoyed fw tanks, but wanted to get into sw eventually when i ot enough $$ . Its quite an investment, but it provides so much fun and entertainment. Its something you can always add to, work on, upgrade, and enjoy! Love it!

I went scuba diving in the caribbean and after seeing all the royal grammas and niger triggerfish in the wild, I wanted my own little piece of the ocean. Of course, I don't have any corals yet, but I'm perfectly happy with my little fowlr setup.

I don't find the tv to be very calming. Especially during political seasons. I can loose myself in the reef and feel nice and calm for a while. I work in emergency management, so becoming calm is a part of my job description...
As a kid, I grew up with a lot of pain from a condition I have. Pediatric wards all had freshwater tanks, I found I could get lost in them and forget about how much I hurt. I do that to this day.
