Hallo

Hi.

My name is Annabelle. I am new to acquariums and i am looking forward to learning as much as i can. I once had a freshwater tank but have always loved salt water tanks. I am planning to start with a small tank about 75 gallons and later upgrade. I am also interested in decorating tanks. Besides that, i am a writer and a pet enthusiast overall.

Welcome,
What kinda critters do you like to keep? in tank or otherwise.

Welcome to New Age Reefs....Please fill us in on what exactly you want to do with your tank and your plans.

Thank you for the warm welcome. I want to keep a pair of clown fish for a start not sure what other fish would go with that. I am still have a lot to learn on maintainance and care. The last time i tried the hobby i had a problem of red slime in the tank. So i just want to be sure that i am not making the same mistakes from the past.

Welcome!!

You can read as many books as you can find, but nothing compares to actually taking care of your own tank!! There are many great reefers on this forum that could and would help you through roadblocks in the hobby. Just stick to basics, don't complicate things and you should be successful!!

Welcome!! Glad you joined our wonderful forum!!

Yup, I have been doing this a while and I am currently dealing with Cyano(red slime) now. I however have it controlled and not worried about it. Sometimes tinkering with something causes more issues than good. πŸ™‚

There are many similarities from fresh to salt, but also some large differences. One being flow. In a reef you want it to move as much water as you can. (think Missouri river flow rate) Another would be the micro organisms that you want to thrive. Pods and worms make the world go round IMO. πŸ™‚
