to the whole Aquarist thing.
Picked up a cheap 10gal at Wally world and put in a couple live plants, fire gouramis and small angel, added an albino pleco (i think it's a pleco) and some snails. Almost bought a blue lobster tonight though, haha. It's running an aqua-tech filter and doing very, very well. Small heater on it, I think a 50w...temperature changes are about 3* daily because it's small, gets to about 80* max during the day and 78* at night when the a/c kicks in.
We've got a 30gal we're setting up this weekend for SW
, going to pick up the live sand and Live rock this weekend with some RO
water. Plan on doing a nice reef setup with maybe 5 fish and a good cleaning crew of hermits, snails, maybe a regular crab or so.....and eventually I think my friends will help me build a refugium.
Eventually I'd like to go bigger, but we essentially got the tank, stand, and lights for $50.
All my other hobbies have been motor-related.
