Newbie from small state of Texas

Hey all, just introducing myself here from Texas. I have been hiding in the shadows for a while reading and learning more on your forums. Also, I have been following projects like Ziggy's, other's builds. I have had a freshwater tank for years and have enjoyed it very much. Yet, everytime I go to the LFS, I am in awe of the marine tanks, so I decided to make the change.

I spent about 800$ after I left the fish store and still did not get lighting, but I set up anyway and used my old freshwater lighting system. {40w flourescent/double, 48 in.} Since then, I have spent much more $$$$ {YIKES} on water, Live rock, etc.{only damsels so far as far as fish} I have a 75g tank and am on a low budget [wife says I have too much hobbies] . Anyways, hope to post more and hopefully get some questions answered from my novice self.

Hey Fish, thnx for the concern, but I was not affected by the fires in Texas recently. I am much further south by the Galveston area . Only thing I have to worry about is hurricanes!

And thanks fo the warm welcome all.
