i was really into freshwater as a teenager. got up to 8 or so tanks all biotopes plus one saltwater tank. actually worked for a few years in a small fish store whilst in college. experimented with sumps and all kind of things including a diy
chiller (email me for instructions). made one more move and said thats enough. sold everything at the flea market. you should of seen the guy who bought it all
i thought he was going to wet his pants he got so excited (another junkie). havent had a tank since.
was going to buy one and do saltwater right. always wanted a reef tank after seeing the new installation at the zoo 15 years ago or so. had wave machines, you should have seen my experiments in designing one of those
. so my next door neighbor gets paralyzed in may after a motorcycle accident and the lfs
has a raffle at one of the fund raisers and guess what? here i am.
