Sheffield, United Kingdom (PressExposure) March 30, 2009 -- Having Become really interested in marine fish and corals and seeing them in my local fish shop, I decided to take the plunge and shut down my tropical fish tank. Tropicals didn't really do it for me. The colors of the fish wasn't as interesting, tropicals was the easier choice and cheaper. I always planned keeping marines if successful with tropicals.
Marines fascinated me. But all the worry of getting it all wrong scared me, especially the cost of setting up a reef tank.
It was worth the risk! the rewards are amazing. Learning fish habits, how corals grow and breed. Seeing the fascinating colors of all marine life, and watching it all grow. It's not easy though, much needed tinkering keeps a reefer busy most days. Checking water parameters and dosing additives, cleaning the glass and not to forget my favorite, feeding the fish and corals!
Now having had my nano reef tank set up for nearly 3 years i decided it was time to share some of my experience on-line with my reef aquarium blog. So other newcomers and reefers can learn from my mistakes, and good reef keeping habits learned on the way.
You can see all my progress with this great hobby by visiting my reef aquarium blog. I have some really useful information and links to great reef keeping forums and websites that have learned me so much. I also have some personal reviews of new products. maybe this could inspire other wannabe reefers out there to finally commit to this amazing hobby.
