Let it Begin

Posted 01/19/2013 at 05:27 PM by Avonlea,PA (My Journey into Reefkeeping)

About 8 years ago, I decided to get into reef keeping. I set up a 180 gallon tank with a custom stand that I built in my apartment bedroom. It was a work of art, if I do say myself. Then the worse thing ever happened (well, not really...but read on)...I met someone. It was love instantly. I decided to move to Florida to get married, but sadly, my tank could not go with me. It was 98% set up. It was ready for water and live rock.

Well, so is life. Fast forward 8 years and I'm now...

Nasty setback.

Just as soon as the new fish went into the display, they've had to come right back out. Somehow, despite time in the QT with copper, they've managed to contract ich. The yellow tang showed spots first, then the kole and flame broke out the next day.

Spent half a day tearing 2/3 of the reef apart -- good fun, tearing apart nearly a hundred pounds of rock that has been epoxied together -- because despite removing nearly all the water, the darn fish managed to wedge themselves into...

My name is Aksel I am from Republic of Armenia.
I decided to start this blog to share my feelings and to receive your comments and advise.
I started keeping marine fish 3 months earlier in order to have nice piece of "furniture" in my apartment, and I start with 20g small tank with several fish and live rock. But soon my marine world becomes a part of my life and it is gaining more and more importance for me, taking me to a quite another universe.
I didn't knew anything...
