I've been out of the saltwater hobby for about 10 years but starting to get back into it. I very sucessfully kept small reef tanks in the 26 to 40 gallon range. The other day I stopped by a great LFS
and drove home with a 100 gallon tank with glass top and wood stand. I know, I bit off a big chunk. 8)
The were several reasons I got out of the hobby, young kids, money, space constraints. Now those aren't an issue anymore. I have a perfect place in the house for the tank. I can now afford to buy the latest and greatest equipment but I'm a tightwad and dont necessarily think that's always the right approach.
I still have most if not all of my old equipment that has been stored in boxes in the shed. Some I can re-use and some will have to be upgraded.
I am looking forward to participating on the board!
