I am so bored with out my reef.

Recommended Posts

Well I have been on deployment back to ft Gordon ga for 5 months now and still have 6 months to go at least. I was so bored that I bought 2 10 gallon tanks and I'm keeping guppies, kinda kicking myself that I didn't just start a little nano reef while I am here. I'm thinking about doing a road trip next weekend which is veterans day to wwc in Orlando but seems like a waste since I can't buy anything. Big shout out to my buddy dpassar for keeping my tank running while I'm stuck here. I renewed my membership to wamas so I figured I would reach out to y'all and see how everyone is doing. 

Thanks Tony

Return guppies for credit at lfs. Convert to salt. Buy a clown. Bring whatever livestock you aquire back and sell/trade/or trade into lfs here for credit.

Believe me, I have really thought about it, and I just might do that.

Tony check out my build. It is not hard to put together a 10 gal. nano tank quick. You may even be able to get away with the stock lighting. Hang in there buddy!

I’ve got one smaller. Probably ~2 gallons. Not a reef yet but any mostly airtight vase with a heater, light, and bubbler does the trick. Then i have like one branch of cycled Tonga, a barnacle cluster off amazon for decor, a black Caribbean sailfin blenny, and some red macro. Unlike me tho, pick a simpler shaped vase. This one is ridiculously hard to clean.

The fluval 13.5 aquarium includes a light that will supposedly keep softies okay.

Might even have some black Friday sales.

Also could check Facebook or Craigslist for someone dumping their old tanks.

If you have a car and feel like a weekend trip, this looks like a pretty good quick startup tank.

Thanks I just sent him an email let's see if it's still available. Looks like a kessil light that alone is worth $160 bucks

I got to come home for Thanksgiving and on Saturday I was sitting in my fish room so relaxed and content. We really have a pretty cool hobby. I showed of pictures of my tank to my master chief here I think I might have infected him:) he keeps asking more questions.
