Hi all, my name is evan and im 16 and have kept fish since i was 10. I have kept almost all freshwater fish there is to keep and have moved up to marine! I was always a bit woried about keeping marine fish.. i heard ''oh its very dificult''...''Its very time consuming''...''its too much work''..''its very expensive''..blah blah blah...So anyway, i took the step towords marine fish because i love learning new things and geting the chance to learn about the water chemistry in keeping corals ect is exciting and interesting. I had a rough start into the hobby as i lost almost €500 worth of fish in the first 4 months of seting up my tank :( This was a huge downer..but i pushed forward and learned from my mistakes! :) I hope to turn my tank into an SPS dominated tank..but i neet the right equiptment first! I got an ATI 6x54W Dimmable with a profilux 2. I now need to get a dosing pump, good powerheads and a job to suport all this!!..too bad im only 16 :l ... So this is the start of my reef :D Enjoy and any tips will go along way! :D

Extremely nice setup. As said do set up a blog. It would be interesting to learn about the setup, the good and bad points and the experience. That's the main reason I haven't even though about marine yet...... the fear
