Hi everyone!

I'm from Edgewater, Fl, new to the site, and pretty new to saltwater setups, especially larger ones. I have a 29g biocube reef and in the process of setting up a 125g reef. I found the biocube really easy since it's all self contained, since I use live rock/sand in it I just left the bioballs out of the filter when I started it up. I'm not finding the 125 to be as easy as I anticipated it was going to be tho! lol
I'm here mostly to learn and hopefully get advice from some more experienced people as I get this tank going. Read thru some of the posts here and this seems to be an active forum with people who are friendly & willing to help, and am glad to be here!

It is for me. I have the app on m,y mobile devices so I'm never that far away. i would go nuts without this site. LOL

Also, at the top of every forum there are "stickies" which contain some really good information. But I'm sure you will find some really good posts, a ton of people make their own sumps.

Not sure if you are interested, but here is the link for my 125g build earlier this year. I've been told it's very informative, I tend to ask some silly and not so silly questions.

Carey's LAST Build- 125g Reef

Hope that helps, it's really really long, the whole community here got involved and helped me beyond words.
