My name is Kyle and I am from South Dakota as you can probably tell by my screen name. I'm a noobie to the forum as well as Salt Water Aquariums. I have had many fresh water aquariums in the past with great success but now i'm looking for something different. My mom is from the Phillippines and she is getting up there in age...can't take the long flights anymore. She misses the ocean and especially the tropical fish. My 2 boys are also obessed with Nemo. I'm going back to school to be a wildlife biologist and need a new hobby so this seemed to fit perfectly. Currently i'm in the process of gathering all the supplies and hardware I am going to need to start a 55g fowlr
. I'm taking a few months here to read books and forums so I at least have some general knowledge before I start. Plus I am going to be moving and going on vacation and do not want to start before that and not be able to give the tank and it's inhabitants the proper amount of care and attention. My target start day is somewhere in the middle of June so I have time yet. I will post again tomorrow and hopefully all of you seasoned vets can give me a good idea of where I am and what I still need to purchase. Have a great day and I hope to meet many you over this journey. I'm pumped and it should be fun and educational!
