So my first exposure to reefing was 15 years ago when my sister got into the hobby. Of course I was more of a spectator and never had to put my hand in the tank not once lol. But i remember being fascinated by her salt water tank and everything that was in it. Unfortunately the hobby got a bit too expensive for my sister and she broke down the tank a year later. Fast forward 15 years to present time, I accidentally stumbled upon a youtube video about a reef tank. One video turns to two, then another one, then another.. before I know it, I'm watching youtube videos about DIY sumps! This was when I knew I just found my newest hobby lol. The very next day I drove to my sister's house, asked if she still had her tank, and after a little digging thru her garage found the tank, stand, and some of the other equipment just wating for me! So since then, I've spent the last few weeks scouring craigslist and amazon slowly building my first tank. I'm hoping to finally start my cycle this weekend and am actually looking to purchase my live rocks online (actually i just saw a posting about some lovely live rocks for sale here, but apparently I'm too much of a new noob to get into the buy and sell section ). I'm so excited, but I knew that despite having watched a hundred youtube videos on reefing, nothing compares to actual human interaction when starting such a complicated hobby like reefing. And thanks to google I am now here!
