And people think I'm 16 or so, hopefully that will apply in 20 more years :D

I've been in the hobby for 3-4 years

55gal: Reef - 10g: Leaffish Macro-Algae Tank - 3g: Pico Reef - 1.6g: Mini Macro Tank

I swear yoshii you turn every thread into a chat box lol!!!

Lack of research is the biggest down fall of people in this hobby.

Twenty two. Reefing for almost 2 years.

With no background in fresh water. >.>

Why is it that my 1.5l femto tank looks similar in size to my 12l pico?
