Greetings!

Hi everyone. I'm so happy to be here. I'm not new to tanks, been keeping freshwater for about fifteen years, but my husband and I are very new to saltwater tanks. We just took the plunge! Very excited. Given that we live in the city and have a bunch of tanks already, we ended up getting a tiny little 8 gallon and now have had live rocks in it for just over a week, to help the tank cycle. Not planning on putting anything in there for about a month, and then starting very small (crab, shrimp). The live rocks came with two whopping clams that we're giving phytoplankon to, as well as a large tunicate that currently doesn't look super happy (sort of shrively). But it's feeding. So, we'll see.

I am the type of person who has fish nightmares, like going down in a basement and realizing that I have 100 tanks I didn't know about, and some have lost almost all their water, while others have fish that have grown too big and are flopping around, etc. So you can probably tell I will be a nervous wreck until our new little tank stabilizes.

Sorry about getting back late but it looks like JoeD and Joma have you taken care of.

Now that sounds like someone that is committed to their tanks and fish. I just looked at your "My Tanks" link. I must say that is an impressive list. So much so that I actually think you could handle 100 tanks!!

Welcome to AA!!!!
