Hi, My name is Shilo and my mom is Jesshimom and her boyfriend is szidls. I'm nine years old and in the 4th grade. I bought a new tank for my room with my birthday money in June. It is 28 gallons I think, and it has a bowed out front. I think it's really cute. My mom gave me a little of her rock, and we bought some more at other places. THere are some weird black slug things we just saw yesterday. I love all the color and I love to watch the fish and wonder what they are thinking. My favorite coral is the pink xenia my mom got from Paul's house. It is growing good. I also have big Kenya Tree that keeps dropping it's branches and my mom said I will soon have a forest! I have a clarki clown, a coral beauty angel and a couple damsels that bite my mom when she puts her hands in the tank to clean the glass. Oh, I also have a peppermint shrimp that is fun to watch.

Cool!

I really like to see someone so young getting into Marine Reef keeping. Keep it up and you will be an expert when you have the time and resources to create a SUPER NICE and BIG reef set up.

Hey CoralGirlShy your tank looks very nice. Did your mom share the mushrooms with you? I saw the pictures of her tank with some of them. Keep reefing.:)

Welcome Shilo ... it's nice to see the younger crowd enjoying the hobby so much. Keep it up, your tank is looking excellent. There is a lot of information here on this site, so feel free to look around and learn as much as you can.

Thanks

Hi Chuck, thank you for changing my name. I like this better.

Hi Karen, she hasn't shared the mushrooms yet but I think I bugged her enough so she will give me one of the blue rocks today if I help her check the water in all the tanks!

Awesome coralgirlshy, your tank looks great and is on its way for sure. I have a few small peices in my tank (frogspaw and leather babies) that are looking for a new home to live in. Do you think you have any place they could hide out in????

Welcome to Reef Frontiers!

Your tank looks great! I'm glad you're enjoying yourself and learning about the hobby. :)

By-the-way, reef tanks are great for science fair projects. ;)

Hello Mike,

I would love to take any frogspawn and leather babies which is so exciting! I do have room in my tank and I dont have any leather so would love some! My mom and Scott are going on a cruise and leaving my brother and I with my grandma so I can't get them until they get back. Will that be ok? Does that mean that we can come see your tank? I saw the pictures already.

Hey Salsaking, I like the clown fish by your name, but do you call yourself SalsaKing because you eat a lot of salsa?

Alice that is a great idea and I hope we have a science fair soon.

I am having fun with my tank and I like to check the water and clean the stinky skimmer cup by myself.

Thank you, Shilo

Hey Shilo!

What do your friends think of the great system you have? Do you point out all of the cool stuff in there?

Sure you can, you just make sure you bring lots of bags and rubber bands with you. Have your mom or dad shoot me an email when they get back.
