Getting back into to SW after a long break. . .


I had a 30 gallon FOWLR for a couple years after college and had to give it up when I moved. I've wanted to get back into salt water ever since, and my wife got me a tiny little 5 gal hex set up for my birthday recently. Now, I understand that 5 gals is tiny, and I think I've done OK limiting myself. Here's what I've got:
10 lbs live sand
7 lbs live rock
3 red hermit crabs
1 chocolate chip star
1 red and white goby
will be adding a pistol shrimp to hang out with the goby soon.

I had a little concern over the star just after acclimating it, and the readers here at AA were very helpful! I imagine I will be posting here regularly as I work to keep my tiny little tank stable and the critters inhabiting it happy and healthy.

I put a couple pics of my old set up in my profile, as well as a few of the new one, enjoy!
