    When did you guys feel it was official? Any good stories?

    I knew I was a Reefer when I was in the shower one day and out of the corner of my eye, I saw something pink on the wall and my first unfiltered thought was, "oh good, I've got some coralline algae growing". It turned out to be nail polish my daughter was playing with and not coralline algae.

    Let's hear some of your stories.

    You know you're a reefer when...

    ...you start having dreams of reefing. Like my dream of baby sea turtles roaming my tank. Or where I come home and all my fish are floating around dead.

    When the IT at your office flags your internet use because they thought "Diver's Den" is a porn page (hasn't happened to me yet but I'm sure it's just a matter of time lol)
