    Hello all,

    I have been keeping fish and tanks since I had a 5 gallon Metaframe in the 60's. Marine has been off and on since my first one in 1974, a 29 gallon fish only.

    I bought someones 75 gallon.. I think its a Marinland , reef ready system with, all the problems it had. Coated in turf algae, asterina stars, a few aiptasia.. etc.. Had to transfer it in parts so I set up a 40b to start and used an old Oceanic 75 gallon to house most of what I couldn't get into the 40. It included a Candy cane with a dozen heads that soon became 2 dozen. Leptastrea, Cyphastrea, Leptoseris, pulsing Xenia, and a few other things I dont recall now.

    Since I now have 2 75's, the 40b and an acquired 30 AIO back in April, I am finding I am looking at upgrading all of this before the end of the year. Got a 55 cube, and a 40b I drilled to accept a home made overflow box.. Making an all black stand and so will have to remove the original 40b and the Oceanic 75 to get this new stuff in. So in the near future I will be making this available to others. The Oceanic anyway. I have spent too much and plan to spend more.. :)

    Looking forward to getting to know all of you.
