Greetings everyone

hey there my name is bret and i've been an alcoholic for the last 5 years....
oh hang on, wrong spot. :)
nah look i'm 24 been into fish for about 4 years now

usual progression... started with small goldifsh....
bought a 2 ft 90 litre tank and turned that into a tropical freshwater after a year or so...

moved the freshies into a 3 foot 170 litre module tank with overhead lighting and biological filter

just got into saltwaters in the last 2 months, i've got a mated pair of clowns and a small yellow goby plus a bunch of corals (i'm so new to this marine stuff so it's all exciting and learning to me at the moment!)

other than the fish, i also love to play the guitar and drums and i;m a teacher by trade....

live in South Australia and love to chill out with friends....

feel free to drop me a line

rock on,

p.s. i'll put a couple of pics up in that section

Hello there
hope you enjoy the site here.
look forward to seeing pics of you aquariums :)
i'm a chocoholic if that's any help.LOL
Would love to visit Australia,must be lovely out there,
although you guys get big spiders out there don't you.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Hi and welcome aboard, Bret.

Hope you enjoy the forum.

Sent from my desktop or phone or whatever else I am holding on to  2
I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Welcome to the Forum :D Would love to see photos of your aquariums.

You know what the definition of hobby is: something of interest that is going to cost you lots of money!
