    My name is Yuk Sum
    A little back story on me. I have always enjoy fish keeping ever since I was a little kid. I started with a 10 gallon fancy goldfish tank knowing little about the size that a goldfish needed.

    As I grow up, I feel in love with planted tank as I enjoy the natural beauty of nature underwater. I fish keep with many planted tank. After graduating from college, I begin more serious in fish keeping and went with a high tech planted tank.

    I was always afraid on doing saltwater tank but let alone a reef tank as I heard it was much harder to keep. Eventually after having success with my planted tank, I feel like I have enough experiences to attempt my hand on saltwater tank

    Start out with a Evo 13.5 gallon fish tank but quickly realize that there are too much coral I wanted and not enough space I decided to upgrade.

    So here we are. My Tank journal

    If you can keep a nice planted tank you can keep a nice reef. Where do you live?

    I do enjoy it. I do however wish the magnet was a little stronger. But far so it have not fell off.

    I brought a aqualife t5 hybrid that is going to pair up with my ap 700. Let see where my par is at with this set up.
