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.
