Hi all, my name is justin and wife (nicole) We were introduced to this site by a fellow who helped me identify some corals this weekend and if your reading this thank you very much! There is a wealth of knowledge to be found here and all kinds of coral/fishy opportunities!

me and the wife are relatively new into the hobby just converted our 55g from a FOWLR to a (baby) Reef tank about a month ago, I have instantly fallen in LOVE with corals, every one amazes me we currently have (for corals)
We have a couple different corals in the tank all are pretty small still and im looking forward to growing them and eventually fragging =)

A couple cool fish, (poor) yellow watchman goby has been getting bullied by the peppermint shrimp but recently seems to be hanging out with him hopefully stupid shrimp will stop taking all his food!

Thanks for reading and i look forward to talking to you guys and picking your brains for knowledge!

Just took a couple new ones actually, now.. my wife has created a photo book account so we will be able to link it to there ( when she has time to put them there ) I'm a computer dummy, I can type... and google reef stuff thats the extent of my computer skills!

I would hightly recommend picking up a pistol shrimp as you have a watchman goby. The pistol shrimp is blind and loves to make tunnels and caves that the watchman gobie likes to hank out in. I've also used an eye dropper and turkey baster to get food down to the lower part of the tank for the gobie.
