    Yup.

    Actually my brother had shut his down (divorce thing) many years ago. He helped me start mine, liked what he saw and re-started one. I gave him my 20g and a bunch of hardware (skimmer, powewrhead, heater..) to help him along.

    Amazing thing the saltwater bug!

    :lol: Same here. One of my best friends was already into the hobby when I met him but none of my other friends are very interested in setting up a tank. They all seem to think that it involves alot of work. Silly people :)

    I didnt get into salt for a long time because I was always told it was hard and salt creep gets everywhere and yada yada yada... Its hard and messy if you dont do what you're suppose to do and listen to wrong information and buy all kinds of crap you dont need. I know of one member on 3reef, that when he started saltwater, he went to the LFS and said, "tell me what I need so I can get it cause I wanna do it right"... He learned you dont tell a LFS that cause they literally sold him arm loads of additives that he didnt need!!!

    My freinds love my tank and come to visit just to see it I think sometimes, but my G/F lets them know whats involved.
    ie the amount of hours im pressed to the tank.lol
    For now the most of them struggle to keep Red fish/Goldfish so I tell em to forget it.
