Have any pictures floating around of your first tank? Is your first tank still around? I'm excited to hear stories!
first salty tank was a 29gallon
what was in it? - a wonderful mix of the wrong stock LOL
total disaster as it crashed but the nice thing about a crash is you learn a lot of valuable things to help in the future....
regrets.... yeah i guess you could say i regret a few things 1st not doing enough research 2nd not listening to more experienced reefers when i has planning. and 3rd not starting with the larger tank i ended with!!
i kept FW for a few years before hand and still do
if you look at my build thread you will see pix of the old, and the new and the progression up to now..
