New Member with Nano Tank

Hey guys! So this is my first post and I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Eric and I have always been a fish lover. I have a 40g African Cichlid tank. Once I got that going a started a smaller 10g tank that housed my blue lobster, Pierre. Finally, I figured it was time to take the plunge I have always wanted to and start a Saltwater tank. Space was limited so I purchased an Evolve8 8g tank. The tank itself is perfect for the space I have provided and is currently cycling. I added a nice 1in thick live sand bed with about 9lbs of live rock and water in which I mixed myself before putting it in. It has been running for about a week and my API testing kit will be here friday so I will know more then. Right now I only have a hydrometer and my salt is at 1.025 right now.

This, however, is not my first passion (believe it or not). I actually am very into cars. I drive a fully built 2010 BMW 135i and run a car club out of the tri-state area.
Back on track: I don't really have any pics as of right now, but I will post what I have right now!
