Hello All, I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Stephen, I'm from Upstate NY, and I am a fish geek. I'm new to your site, but by no means new to forums, or the hobby. Im a 28 year veteran to the fishkeeping hobby, having worked my way up from a 10 gallon tank as a child. Ive suffered through the phases of MTS, and have now reduced the number of tanks back down to 3. I currently house a 55 gallon Tanganyikan Cichlid community, a 10 gallon grow-uot tank for a breeding pair of Julidochromis, and My pride and joy, a 55 gallon marine reef. Though I've had years in the FW
aspects of the hobby, I am relatively new to the Reefkeeping/Saltwater side of the fun. My 55 gallon softies dominated reef is about 15 months old and has been fairly sucessful. I owe that to the 12 months of research I did before I even mixed the saltwater. Besides the Fishkeeping, I'm a 38 year old Police,Fire, & EMS Dispatcher with a love for photography, the outdoors, and all things natural.
