    First off i would like to tank everyone here for all the very informative posts and help. I've just recently started in the hobby and have been doing it for about 2 and a half months. I have 2 55 gal tanks and they are doing very well thanks to all you folks here that have given such good information as to how to start out and what to look for and when things start to go bad....how to fix them. Maybe im just lucky, but i havent had near the stress that i have read some have had starting out. and i think its due to reading here and patience.

    Again my tank is only 2 months old. and its still growing. I have found that i much more enjoy buying young livestock and small coral frags and letting them grow in my tank rather than buying the end product, so my fish are young. and i dont have much vid of the corals yet. (still deciding what to put in there, i know i want a brain and xenia, just not sure what else..)

    But anyhow. i hope you enjoy the video, and as my tank progresses. i will have more.

    Ohh, first half is nice colorful fish, second half is my aggressive tank. lions and such.

    here ya go.

    wow, recently started the hobby, and you have TWO tanks?? already an addict! welcome to the club! i only have one 55, but i still consider my self addicted... you must have good income! definately a good word of advice that you have... learn as much as you can before you even start, so you have fewer disruptions... i'm with you 100% on buying young, juvenile livestock.. i personally believe you get more self-appreciation when you see something grow up, all thanks to your own determination...

    Billy,

    Very nice looking tank for just 2 mos! Also very well done video.

    Keep an eye on those water params, that is a pretty heavy bio-load for such a young tank.

    Nothing you can't stay ahead of if you keep a close eye on them and keep up regular water exchanges.

    Good job!
