Well that's a pretty good reason to be late! 

I would have to say that my favorite part of the hobby is DIY'ing everything that I can, from lights to ato, the hood, stand, cooling system for when the tank heats up and almost everything in between. The end result, watching my corals thrive in a environment I built myself. 

 

Speaking of babies, I found some baby stomatella snails in my sump. (yes my sump is full of xenias)

I like all the different corals mainly. Almost like gardening my grandma and mom liked for years but for the ocean.

I love that fact that I'm creating a living piece of art in my house.  Creating something aesthetically pleasing while also maintaining a healthy ecosystem is a challenge, but the results are always worth it!

That this hobby is endless. There’s always something to do; something to review, something to research, something to troubleshoot, something to enjoy. You might have been in the hobby for years, you might be new - either way, this addicting hobby (for the most part) brings the best out in people and keep them engaged in a community like Nano-Reef.com.

 

Edit: And it steals all our money... 😅

I love having a tiny little piece of the Ocean in my living room. The best part is sharing the hobby with my kids and having them learn about the natural Ocean as well as reef keeping. Congrats on the expected little one.

Congrats!! My favorite part is just getting lost staring at the tank daily and sharing the enjoyment with friends and family not in the hobby.

My favorite part of the hobby is adding new additions to the ecosystem. I also love being able to sit back and get lost in admiring the tank

My favorite part is how relaxing it is to get home from work and watch everything move with the flow of the current. I could (and do!) do that for hours. It'll never get old.

My favorite part of reefkeeping is watching everything grow!  It is very fulfilling seeing the growth and development of my own little piece of the ocean.

For me it’s almost been the same thing. After your rock, sand, and cycle is going watching all the small life that’s in your tank. 

 

Once my tank was up and running it was always just crouching down and checking out everything that’s going on in the refugium. 

 

Recently my toddler has taken a strong interest in feeding the reef, and that’s pretty damn cool. 

 

She’s always like feed fish 🐠, what else can I say except ...

The favorite part of this hobby is just letting go when all is good in the aquarium. Looking at it I can go to my happy place and leave everything behind for a moment. An aquarium is a portal to another place for a brief moment.
