    I've been researching stuff for the hobby and working at building a reef tank...for 3 years. haha. After several attempts, I have a 29g that has properly been up for 10 months (hey, today is exactly 10 months). I've never had a single coral. I've had one fish. Hopefully that will change by christmas. :)

    I joined 3 reef almost a year and a-half ago. I've gained almost all of my knowledge since I joined this place. Great forum.

    Thanks. Due to lack of funds, I haven't been able to have the best tank, for sure, but I try to stay as involved as I can, in the hobby. Helping people on the forum and also researching is how I do this.

    Absolutely! Even today, scientific information concerning the welfare of our pets is constantly changing, as is the advancement in technology to assist us in providing the most suitable environment for them. :)
