Hi, I am Dyami and I am an Addict. LOL. Just thought I would introduce myself. I am Dyami and I live in WV. I started into Aquariums quite a long time ago (freshwater 10gal), but got bored with those. Then several years ago, I started into Saltwater. I got hooked of course. I got a 55gal tank second hand and started it up. I mostly took my time like I was supposed to, and I maintained a few fish. But I made a lot of mistakes. I did some homework on what I was doing, but not enough and lost several fish. Then the bad part happened and I had to leave on military duty. My fish tank although it was supposed to be maintained for me of course didn't and everything died. My snowflake eal made it quite a while though.
Anyway, since I got back, I have set up the tank again and started over. I think I am doing better so far.
I have a 55gal display tank with a 30 gal
sump. Homemade wet/dry filter system. I have an underpowered 50/50 actinic light that I know needs replaced. Thats about it. I have plenty of live rock and the tank has been running for about 6 months now.

I don't have a test kit, and really haven't been too concerned with getting one. I just take water to the fish store and they test free there.
Anyway, to make a long story short, I have been reading forum after forum trying to decide on one to join and this was it. Everyone here had the best information, the best DIY stuff and the best format to put everything together. I actually found the forum several weeks ago and after reading many others, I had trouble finding it again. But I found ya again and registered.
So here I am, ready to learn more.
I will get some pictures and video as soon as I get batteries. I love LiPo batteries, but when they go dead they are done.
So a big thank you and pat on back from me on everyone here, because you do have the best forum and people.
