a little info about me...
Short intro - married, mom of 3, student, former navy wife, now a proud national guardsmens wife. I love nature & animals.
I recently joined this site, tho I have come across it several times before when looking for advice, I decided to join because my life long dream & one I spent verbally planning with my husband the last 6 years just became a reality! I am a proud owner of a reef tank...err well it will be, right now it's just live rock and a small cleaning crew. I have kept fish all my life, thanks in part to my grandma "You want a tiger? No, honey how about a lovely goldfish aren't fish neat!?" I have also kept newts & turtles in the past, my husband (gasp) never had fish as a child and never wanted any, he thought they were dumb! So he went out to sea for a workup and came home to a fish tank (you can't keep life from me haha) where I found him stareing at them day after day...we currently have a 29 gallon freshwater that has been up about 2 years that I put up for our son, I also keep a 20 gallon at my mom's for him with guppies, & of course now we have a 80 gallon saltwater.
I have enjoyed reading & talking with some of you & hope to learn alot, as well as help anyone if I can, it is comforting to know there is someone who will help me if I need it. Even tho I researched before hand, we all know reading and doing are totally different things! Everything is so expensive I must admitt I am worried about breaking my equipment.
I'll try to figure out how to upload pictures so I can show the progress to those interested!
Thanks to everyone who read this!
