New to forum, referred by my son!

I have had saltwater aquariums for about 32 years and have run every type of setup imaginable with exception of sump system. Very old school. I have a 55 gallon with a 9 year old tomato clown. Just did an major remodel of tank interior and beginning to add some fish. Just added niger trigger. And planning to add another mabe a Flame Angel.

Also, just setup a 10 gallon for fun, probably going with fish and reef, really just to get me back in the reef type tank mode and knowledge base.

I am looking for this forum to educate this old dog to the new tricks available. Goal is to know how to setup a complete ecosystem.

Welcome! So, where did your education stop? Sumps with refugiums and/or turf scrubbers seem to be the popular methods of nutrient export, along with protein skimming. How familiar are you with these?

Welcome to Aquarium Advice, where newbies meet experienced aquarists! I hope you will have an enjoyable time learning from the countless years of freshwater, saltwater, and brackish tank experience!

Who say's that you can't have more than one tank? Just get one more... just one...
