Hi all. Returning to the hobby.

I've had aquariums most of my life. Got out of the hobby about 8 years ago when we sold our house.

I was browsing craigslist and found an Aqueon 90G, full setup with high-end components for a really nice price...the owner was selling their home. I talked it over with the wife and she liked the idea as much as I did.

Right now I've replaced the crushed coral and put in a DSB with Caribsea aragonite special reef sand. I have quite a bit of macro algae in the 40g sump. I traded the fish (Lionfish and dragon wrasse) to a quality LFS.

The setup was 5 months old when I bought it and had about 60# of dry reef rock. It has some coraline algae growth. I've had this setup for about a month now and added 10 turbo snails, 10 hermit crabs, 10 nassarius snails, 8 micro stars and 40# of live rock from 4 different sources.

Water params look good and the tank remains stable. The plan is full reef replication and possibly a few fish, depending on what the tank throws at me.

I find it interesting how you always seem to return to the things you love throughout your life. Some might call it karma.
