    hi all
    thought as i had been a member for a while and not posted i better start. been reef keeping on and off for the last 15 years. started with a small 4ft softy tank that went great and everything out grew the tank, but the lack of cash as the kids were young meant i wasnt able to keep going as a larger tank was out of question. Then got my second tank another 4ft but wider and heigher than the old one thinking this will keep me going, started again with softies but soon progressed to lps and sps, again all went well growing well, had a great assortment of equipment all run off a sump, my 1st sump. once again other priorities over took reef keeping and rather than let the stock suffer i thought i would sell up and start again a little later. sorry i would have put a couple of pics up but havnt a clue how to do that on here. Got a small aquamedic chromis about 18 months ago but as so small never got the heart to set it up so decided to sell it all and not bother,,,,,hmmmm bitten by the bug again, sold the chromis and the next day brought a aqua medic anthias 48x27x27 :eek: with sump and a few bits of cheap equipment. been buying bits since and have spent a small fortune so far and not a drop of water has touched the tank yet.
    anyway enough of my rambling, once up and running i will do a blog or something. ask a load of dumb questions and generally rub a few people up the wrong wayBig Thumbs Up
