I just got back into the hobby after about a 10 year break...introducing my two young sons into it. Got a used biocube 29 set up, and I quickly remember how it's so easy to spend $$ in the hobby!

So this is my first time going skimmerless on a tank, and already aside from the tank, stand, lights, etc that I got, I'm already 'modding" the tank for an "inTank" media rack.

Now I remember...I've gotta set up a side fund for this hobby! The tank is going to start life out as a FOWLR setup...but I know before long we'll be introducing some corals....it's only a matter of time!

Anyways...happy to be back in the hobby! Oh how i've missed it!

Hey McGyvr, thanks! I see you're in NC too. I actually got the tank from Nemo's Reef in Matthews. Store was incredible.

Any other suggestions for stores in NC?

Thanks!

I'm near Raleigh so not really close to you at all..

There is nothing around here that I would recommend making a drive for..
I've basically given up on all the local places due to being overpriced or just crappy stock/poor tank maintenance,etc...
I'm doing all my future purchases online..
