Old fart learning new tricks

Hi guys,...my name's Dary ,I'm 58 and have been out of the aquarium game for the last 20 years or so,..I once had a 100 + gallon saltwater setup that I ran for the better part of ten years with local critters from our local waters.
Back then it seemed like there wasn't too many people or places that you could pick their brains about tank setups etc,.it was more of a hands on and a trial by error effort, but somehow I guess I did ok.
But that was years ago, I recently have been debating the idea of setting up another tank,.I visited one of our local dealers and picked his brain for about an hour, wow,.how things and equipment have changed but kinda actually stayed the same in so many aspects.
So, every year I've managed to go snorkeling in Hawaii and have acquired a real fondness for the humuhumu's ,... So I'm on that cusp about setting up a tank just for them.,wish me luck and feel free to send advice. Thanks, Dary

welcome to AA and good luck with your endeavor.

If you put off what you can do today until tomorrow it will never get done cause tomorrow never comes. It's always today.

Welcome!! Aquarium keeping is better than it ever was...find a local Reef club in your area, if there is one. Ours in Des Moines has almost 800 registered members. I buy everything from them now - lots of people getting in and out all the time it seems.
My tanks: 120 Reef w/L2 Algae Scrubber, 60 Reef Pond w/floating Algae Scrubber, 40 Breeder Reef w/L2 UAS Tester Algae Scrubber
I maintain: 144 SW Reef w/L2 Algae Scrubber | 200 SW Reef w/L4 Algae Scrubber
Special knowledge: Algae Scrubbers, Acrylic Fabrication
