some people say it's a hobby. But for me it's an addiction! I just love the way everything comes together and looks!

I have always been fascinated with marine life but didn't think about aquarium until I snorkel a coral reef and seagrass beds. Then I just had to have one so I bought a books and stuff and now finally I have set up a 55 gallon

For me it's the challenge when you think you've got everything right another door opens😀

I'm 60 years old; always wished I had the skills to maintain a saltwater aquarium, believing it to be a major daily task.

After our third move in 18 months, our aquarium guy (he helped us move our tropical) told us that we would have no trouble maintaining a SW tank; after all, we'd been keeping a healthy tropical for about three years...

Took the plunge this past February 1 and we're already expanding!

We have a Nano Cube 29g still in its initial cycle; the bug has bitten me real hard now. I scored a deal on a 75g w/sump, stand, plumbing, pretty much everything to begin the cycle. This is gonna be a long-term project, but I'm looking forward to every moment!

Current plan is Caribbean...

Always loved saltwater fish and just recently took the plunge. Figured I might as well go ahead and go full throttle with some easy corals. Setting up the tank soon!

Because the ocean is the most mysterious and intriguing place. And who wouldn't want a piece of that in their house? I have always been fascinated watching great barrier reef and ocean documentaries growing up and just all the undiscovered life out there that we couldn't even imagine would exist on this planet. To me it is one of the most fascinating hobbies and I enjoy everything about it.

The sheer beauty of the reef and all the animals around it is just so fascinating. And the calming affect that it has on you. When I sit in front of my tank a peacefulness just washes over me. All of the stresses of the day just wash away. And you can learn so much just by observing.
