So it begains!

My 65 gallon aquarium for my first SW tank finally got here! It's taken a year to finally get this blasted thing here in one piece. The real kicker... it gets here two weeks before i go on vacation, and i know better than to play with it before i leave. My wife (who was ok with the idea to start with) thinks i'm crazy because i can't walk by it without stopping and staring at it anytime i walk by. In her mind it's just a lit glass box... in my mind... it's MY lit glass box!

The bad part is that suddenly after 6 to 8 months of researching, i'm suddenly like "duh, what do i do again?" Guess it's a good thing I really am trying to take it slow on this one huh?

I agree. Don't feel bad, I've been doing it for a few years and sometimes still find myself saying, "Duh, what now".
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
