Hello. I've been addicted to the aquarium hobby since I was around 7, so that would make my career about 37 years long. The last 5 have been strictly on the marine side of the fence. I set up a 55 gallon FOWLR but when new life started popping up out of the rock I seriously lost my mind and became completely addicted to the hobby. Currently I have a 75 gallon SPS dominant, and a 90G macro display. The "spouse factor" resulted in a tear down of around 400G of prop system, a mixed reef and the sale of my beloved female O. havanensis and male G. glabrous. Long story short: with too much time on my hands I kept "getting into trouble" w/ the wife and she got fed up with my moping so I've been "allowed" to begin rebuilding. From the beginning I've understood that research is the key to success and I've pushed that onto every newcomer I've helped. Nothing in this hobby comes easy and if a person doesn't take the time to read and learn, failure is imminent or frustration will drive you out. I was toying with the idea of keeping a ceph before the big meltdown and had researched a little. Now that I am back with a clear path of relatively apparent smooth rolling I've decided it truly is something I would like to attempt. Hence joining TONMO I recently picked up a 150 gallon RR AGA and that will be the home to probably the most fascinating and challenging animal I will ever keep. It will be a very slow build and figure that actually purchasing the species I end up feeling will be the best match for my level of understanding still is months away. The hardest part will be maintaining a tank with no visible life in it while it matures and fighting off the urge to turn it into another reef. In the meantime I'll be reading threads, articles, blogs, any thing that will help me provide the absolute best environment for a truly amazing animal. Suggestions to books and links are welcomed and appreciated. Thanks in advance.
