Slow down

Teddy,

I just read your posts as I am planning a 20 galloon reef tank with a 20 gallon sump (for added volume and a sump skimmer). I have been reading everything I can for weeks now to learn the do's and dont's and just got my stand built. You are having too much fun, but slow down dude. Before you put anything in your tank understand what it is. Just cause you want it don't just buy it. These are critters that are way too cool to just throw together and hope for the best. Learning exactly how to keep an extremely small amount of water at a consistent level should come before trying to keep livestock. Reefkeeping is about keeping perfect water not fish. If you can't keep good water you will never keep fish or corals. Especially in a nano tank. This is just my 2 cents and I donlt mean to be a poopy in the punch bowl. Just 1 newbie to another. Failure leads to discouragement. I tryed years ago when I was younger and now 15 years later I WILL do it right. Failure is not an option this time.......

oh i understand that i cant just buy anything i want, and that the water is the main part of the tank. I monitor the water every week and if i see something wierd in the tank i test it then. the water level is just evaporation, but i watch the salinity and if i see a change at all i will correct it. I also research the coral online before and after i buy it, and i also ask the person that works there.

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.
