I'm just getting started into this whole ceph keeping world and am finding myself a little bit on the frustrated end of getting some of the basic q's answered. Is there a ceph's 101 thread that I'm overlooking on here that someone can direct me to? Something that will take me from 0-100... in terms of what I'm getting into...? I know what a pain it can be to keep answering the same questions over and over again in a forum, and would like to avoid being 'that member ' at all cost... I'm not trying to say that you all think or feel that way about about any newbie..... but you catch my drift annnnnnd I'm rambling... Anyway, my ultimate goals are ; 1.) To have a life-compatible salt water (obviously) aquatic environment of minimal to moderate maintenance. Something I can put in a half hour to an hour daily and be done with it. Whether or not those numbers would be considered minimal to moderate or not.... again I play the new guy card. 2.) A sized tank that is big enough to accommodate the smaller sized species with room left over... without violating the terms of my first goal . I hope to try a variety over time. I understand most species have a natural lifespan of 1-2 years.... yea cut that number in 2 when considering my tank... (well for the first couple ::cough-couple-hundred-cough-cough:: anyway right?) 3.) To eventually have enough experience to keep some of the more rare and exotic species. Particularly the infamous BR somewhere down the line. Yes... yes I know it can kill me... but did you know we all die anyway.... haha 4.) Furthermore I do most solemnly and sincerely promise and swear to do my very best in caring for our very sacred and beloved sea creature to the best of knowledge without any due negligence. bonk 5.) And of course the pursuit of happiness!!!!!!!
