I have been lurking around here for about a month now. Reading posts and getting the lingo down. Thought it was about time to introduce myself.
I got bit by the aquarium bug about 5 weeks ago, when I was helping my 10 year old son set up a 10g freshwater tank as a replacement for the the two Afircan frogs that the four year old threw out of the window. (It was not a pretty scene....prying the 10 yr old hands from around the others neck.....but I digress.)
After researching the aquarium a little, I found that I was probably more interesed in it than my son.
I have thought about a saltwater aquarium in the past, but it always seemed to get pushed back. (Saltwater because...I am an avid offshore and inshore fisherman....Sorry PITA)
I am a structural engineer by trade and tend to research everything a little before jumping in....so here I am standing on the brink of doing something either really stupid or absolutely amazing. (I prefer the latter.)
Our closest LFS
is in Columbia, SC. (Fishy Business) They have a very good reputation and the only thing left for me to do is to take them a sample of my water.......well water. We live about 55 miles from Fishy Business, and I intend to make up my on water if at possible. (Would love advice from those who have well water on this subject.)
I am looking at a tank right now that is 150 gal
. The craigslist advertisment is below. I would love to have some feedback from those who have gone the route of buying a somewhat established tank, and adding to it.

If this is the wrong place to post this let me know, or the admin could just move it down to one of the Saltwater Forums.
