Everythings bigger in Texas
Hi, I'm Elise, from Ft. Worth, Texas.
We have recently remodeled our house (a big remodel). My husband wanted a built-in big screen Plasma, and I wanted a built-in big saltwater tank. I think I got the better deal. I had a custom wall of cabinets made for the tank and tv. That was a big project since I didn't know what I needed or how to do it. After alot of time arguing with our cabinet maker to build what I thought I needed, and alot of time worrying, it all came out great. I now know I should have put in more electrical outlets, I thought 6 would be good, but I can deal with that. The guys that set up my system told me the outcome was wonderful.
Oh, about my tank.
It's 4'w x2'd x30"h, 140 gallons, I wanted it big, but hope I didn't bite off more than I can chew for a beginner. It's been up and running for 2 months and everything is great (so far). I have added (not all at once)snails, hermit crabs, sandsifting starfish, pepperment shimp, some small coral, and 5 chromis fish. I'm having it servest every 2 weeks untill I know how to do it myself. I want to take it slow and hopefully avoid some of the big problems. That's where ya'll come in! I'll need all the help, and advice I can get for a beginner. Thanks
