    hi welcome nice to see another southerner in these parts. I'm from NC, 40 breeder is a great tank! that's the tank I got back into reefing with . in matter of fact getting ready to set it back up but going to do a Macro algae tank with pipe fish and such. this is a great place with a great group of people. also a good place to get equipment, also eBay and Craig's list if you have any questions please ask and we will do what we can to help

    Kutcha, you can host your images at photobucket.com. use the IMG link to copy and paste in any of your threads. PB allows you much larger, and more images than our site does.

    Definitely put a screen on the top of your tank, when you add them. They are jumpers.
