New to the forum /saltwater community

Hello everyone! Im sure in the next couple of months i'll be frequenting this forum a lot. Ever since I was a kid, I've always wanted a saltwater aquarium. As a child I've had all sorts of freshwater fish and all sorts of sizes of aquariums ranging from a fish bowl to a 75 gallon. I've always been facinated by saltwater, but thought it'd be best until I waited until I was older and had my own income to 'dive' into the hobby. I've been doing several months of research and still have a while yet til I can get my tank, but i'm so excited its getting close! I cant seem to learn enough, its great. I log on just about every night and learn what I can. Great to meet everyone!

Welcome to AA!

This hobby is an on-going learning experience. I learn something new everyday. The best advice I can offer you is to ask a lot of questions before you make any purchases. There are folks here that have used just about everything on the market and you will be able to get first hand info.

Welcome to AA!

The best advice I ever got was on this site.
"Nothing good ever happens fast in a salt water aquarium"

Keep that in mind and never be afraid to ask questions on the forums here. Also, try to keep each post to a single topic so they all get answered.

While your researching post your equipment list or what you want to get so you can get some feedback. Learn from our mistakes and save much money in the process
