Hello all my name is Mark. I live in Colorado Springs. I am new to SW, but have been into FW for about 10-12 years. Just recently picked up a Nano12 and a Bio 29. Currently have a small Clown, 1 Pistol shrimp, 1 Goby(not sure what kind lol), 2 Peppermint shrimp, and a few crabs and snails in the 29 along with a nice size star polyp and a couple other small soft frags.

Well it is a complete stock 29 Oceanic Biocube. I bought it used from a guy that had it set up for a year or so I believe. I have only had it for a few days. I have always wanted to get into SW and just never took the plunge. I have a 120 in the garage that I picked up with a 50gal sump. Still trying to talk the wife into giving me some floor space for that one though. Hoping that the little cube will get her interested in the SW enough to give me the go ahead. pretty much have everything for that minus some powerheads and a return pump. I actually already have some coral bones in a plastic tub curing, trying to get some growth going.... and need to build a stand. I actually heard about the club from the guy that I bought the cube from so I figured I would check it out since I want to learn as much as I can and try to minimize all the newb mistakes. Thanks for the add! Im really looking forward to some meetings.

welcome Mark. Hope the wife gets into it too. It's a joy when your spouse enjoys the hobby too.

I'm laughing... Only took 2 1/2 years and I've FINALLY given in and join Hubs in the hobby... He got me my first tank recently and I'm definitely already addicted! Not sure things are going as he thought they would when he made this original post... As I'm not sure he's actually able to do more with it as I'm the one eating up the hobby funds now ;)
