Thank you for the Welcome.

As for the reading, I think that I’ve got ya covered there. My copy of Robert M. Fenner’s ‘The Conscientious Marine Aquarist’ is dog-eared and frayed. As well I’ve read Tullock’s ‘Natural Reef Aquariums’, Borneman’s ‘Aquarium Corals’, and Paletta’s book as well. I’ve been lurking out at ‘AquaLinks’ web forum for awhile and decided to hop on over here because I wanted to get away from the East Coast. Just kidding. I felt that I needed more exposure than I was getting from the great people over there and my LFS, Aquarium Paradise.

I was thinking on a doing a 55 gallon reef tank (eventually) with a Royal Gramma, Gramma loreto, a Six-line Wrasse, Pseudocheilinus hexataenia, and possibly someone out of the Centropyge family.

And as you saw in my post on the DIY forum, there is no Damsel in a 30 gallon tank that I just set up yesterday. I have discovered that a limited budget is best tool for exercising patience.

Thank you for the contact point for PSAS.

Welcome!!

One word of caution. A 55g is a nasty size. I have both a 40 and a 55, and much prefer the 40 because it is deeper. The thiness of the 55 makes it hard to aquascape. Just my 2-cents.

But 36" will mean a lot of DYIing or very limited choice for the 40, won't it? :)

I'd say 75 is the way to go :) or 120, but that one is so close to 180, which is my dream-tank :eek:).

yeah, my 55g was a little hard to aquascape due to thinness but it can be done with the right rocks. i bought a few that are a little large and i wished i would've broken them up before i placed them in the tank. live and learn.....when i have to move it i will redo the rock work or maybe a larger tank :)

I just read Hermit’s post to my wife. The response was, “Uh-huh.” Now you know why I have a limited budget. It’s my allowance! I think that there’s some hope there though!:D

75 is not a lot more $ than a 55g, from there, at least in glass tanks the 90 and 120 have thicker glass and a big price jump
I started with a 29(like a mini 55, same shape) then a low wide 55 then an AGA 75 that I have now, I wish they made a 100 or so 48x18hx24 wide
